Be greener, say staff

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Career One -

AUS­TRALIAN com­pa­nies are not ad­e­quately green-minded, if their staff per­cep­tion is any­thing to go by says a RedBal­loon Greener Work­place Study, com­piled af­ter a sur­vey of 1788 em­ploy­ees.

About 90 em­ploy­ers of those sur­veyed have a re­cy­cling scheme and more than half have en­ergy sav­ing de­vices. But em­ploy­ees be­lieve a lot more could be done.

‘‘ This doesn’t mean busi­nesses need to in­vest in rad­i­cal changes,’’ says Naomi Sim­son, founder of RedBal­loon. ‘‘ Small changes, such as re­cy­cling bins at desks and en­cour­ag­ing em­ploy­ees to turn off their com­puter af­ter hours, all con­trib­ute to a greener Aus­tralia.’’
