FIRST STEPS IN RE­DUC­ING YOUR CAR­BON FOOT­PRINT

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - GG TOP 40 AT WORK -

Re­duc­ing your car­bon foot­print doesn’t en­tail ex­pen­sive changes. For in­stance, turn off the lights, com­put­ers and ap­pli­ances from the mains when leav­ing of­fice. If you put them on standby mode, these gad­gets continue to draw power. Sec­ond, while we sug­gest you go paper­less, we know it isn’t so easy. How­ever, you can go in for eco-friendly print­ers and set it for dou­ble- side print­ing. Hav­ing en­ergy ef­fi­cient ap­pli­ances is also a good idea, but it in­volves some in­vest­ment. An­other earth-friendly mea­sure would be to cut down on travel by in­stalling a video-con­fer­enc­ing fa­cil­ity in the of­fice. You can also in­stall mo­tion sen­sor switches that au­to­mat­i­cally turn off power in ar­eas where no one is work­ing.
