People often think that being a more sustainable workplace requires a massive project or change in operations. Yet, there are some small changes that can have a big effect on the environment if done consistently. At Sumting we believe that with the contributions of many we can combat climate change and create long lasting results towards our goal to restore nature. However, it is just as important to curb the daily environmental footprint of the workplace too. Therefore, we thought of 7 tips in order to create a workplace that is better for the environment:

  1. Allow your employees to work from home and stimulate other forms of commuting

  1. Turn off electricity when the office is not in use

  1. If you need to print, ensure it’s done sustainably
