Going Green at CII 15 Steps

  1. 1. Going Green Simple steps to help conserve environmental resources and cut costs
  2. 2. We’re Going Green at CII. Why? • To minimize our environmental liabilities • To maximize the effective use of resources and reduce waste • To demonstrate a good corporate image and encourage membership to do the same • To build awareness of environmental concerns among employees and membership • To gain a better understanding of the environmental impacts of business activities • To cut costs and improve environmental performance through more efficient operations
  3. 3. Fifteen ways to Go Green Read on
  4. 4. 1. Think before you print • Do you really need to print every email in your inbox? Just being more conscious about how much we print, is the first step in saving countless sheets of paper. • If you must print, do not print the repeat, trailing emails in replies and forwards.
  5. 5. 2. Draft Printing on one siders • Use one siders for draft printing. • On the 4th floor, we have dedicated one printer for draft printing (for drafts, rough copies, for approval from HODs/ VG/ CB and internal reference) and the other for fresh printing (for formal invites/ letterheads etc.)
  6. 6. 3. Back-to-back printing • Back-to-back printing is now mandatory. • Make sure you are printing on both sides of the paper, whether it is for rough use, or for a formal publication. • Take help from IT to understand how to feed in paper to print back-to-back.
  7. 7. 4. Sharing is Caring • Yes, you can share print copies within your desk, instead of every person printing their own copy. Share and Care (for the environment too). • Share stationary items too.
  8. 8. 5. Paper Recycle Bins • Have separate paper recycle bins or boxes for totally used paper on every floor. Have it collected and sent for recycling. • Remember every ton of paper recycled will save at least 20 trees, 7000 gallons of water, 2 barrels of oil and a lot of electricity!
  9. 9. 6. Remember to re-use • Have recycle bins at the exit points of CII events to dump used/ unused plastic badges, plastic folders, note pads, pencils, pens and whatever else that is distributed. • All of it can be re- used at the next event.
  10. 10. 7. Power OFF • Turn OFF your computer and unplug it before leaving office. • Just 1 workstation – computer and monitor left on after business hours is responsible for power plants emitting nearly one ton of carbon dioxide per year!
  11. 11. 8. “Sleep”, “Hibernate” or “Stand by” • Put your computer in “Sleep”, “Hibernate” or “Stand by” – its power saving mode when you go off to a quick meeting or leave for lunch. • FYI: Screen Savers DO NOT “save” energy
  12. 12. 9. Pull the Plug • Unplug all appliances like the tea/ coffee maker, hot case etc when not in use. • Appliances that are plugged in, even if not in use, still suck some energy.
  13. 13. 10. See the light? • Please turn off all lights that are not in use. • If you are not in your room or leave your seat, please turn off the lights. • As you leave office for the day, remember to turn off the lights at your seat.
  14. 14. 11. Where’s your Mug? • Bring your own tea / coffee mug. Personalize your office space. ☺ • Use the cups provided in the Pantry. • Avoid using disposable paper cups. They will be discontinued soon anyway!
  15. 15. 12. Drip Drip • Inform Admin of any leaky taps in the sink/ pantry/ washroom and make sure they are fixed. • Plenty of leaky taps in the building. Drip by drip tons of water are wasted.
  16. 16. 13. Go Mobile with Laptops • Laptops are much more energy efficient than desktops. • Consider investing in a laptop rather than a Desktop.
  17. 17. 14. Be a Green Rider: Carpool • Colleagues living in nearby areas can coordinate timings and carpool. Share the cost too. • Be more conscious about sharing transport while going to meetings together. • Carpooling is fun and environment-friendly, will save money and reduce traffic!
  18. 18. 15. Weekend Tree Hugger • Get together with CII volunteers for a weekend tree plating drive. • Details will follow soon.
  19. 19. Go Green, CII!
