Companies ‘should recycle office supplies and office furniture’

By Paperstone on August 14, 2007 in Office Furniture

Companies should make an effort to recycle office supplies, office equipment and office furniture whenever possible, it has been suggested.

Document management company Version One told AccountingWEB that firms do not have to go to a lot of effort or spend a fortune to help reduce their carbon footprints.

The organisation has offered several suggestions for ways in which businesses can be more eco-friendly and cut down on their CO2 emissions.

Recycling Paper-based office supplies such as stationery and business cards can help reduce waste, it advises.

At the same time, larger waste – such as office machines, printer cartridges and office furniture – can also be recycled, it adds.

Version One suggests that companies choose an employee to operate as a green executive, who can assume responsibility for eco-policies at the office.

At the same time, the firm says that all staff must be invested in these green plans in order for them to be successful – an objective which may be achieved by inviting suggestions and help from all workers.

"Going green needn’t cost a fortune and in actual fact, environmentally friendly measures can save businesses money whilst improving staff morale," commented Version One marketing manager Catherine Murphy.

Recent research from InfoTrends suggested that more work needed to be done by businesses regarding recycling printer cartridges.
