The Green Office

Running an environmentally responsible business is not just a statement of personal values. It’s great for the bottom line. Excessive use of commodities like paper and energy places a strain on the environment and your company’s bottom line.

Choosing to invest in green real estate is one of the best ways to curb expenses while doing something good for the world. Today’s green building techniques are often surprisingly simple, and can lead to huge long-term savings with little short-term costs.

A green office will usually include some or all of the following features:

Natural light. The use of plenty of well-positioned windows is a hallmark of a green building. The more natural light gets in, the less energy you will use on lighting.

Efficient windows. Why spend money and energy heating or cooling the outside of your building? A green office has high quality windows that properly seal off the interior environment.

Recycled building materials. Green real estate often features recycled fly ash concrete construction and may include re-used wood and other recycled materials.

Energy-saving appliances and plumbing. Efficient heating and cooling systems, power-saving light fixtures and low-flow plumbing can drastically reduce your company’s consumption of water and energy.

Alternative energy sources. Solar panels are most common, but some green offices feature unique eco-friendly amenities like geo-thermal heating.

These are just a few of the many new green building techniques becoming more common. Green offices may employ some or all of these features, plus many other new eco-friendly add-ons.
