Sustainability Growing in Staples Rodway's Auckland Office

As part of our Auckland office’s CEMARS certification on 30 March 2017 we have formed a sustainability committee, where we come up with new initiatives to improve the environmental impact of our office.

Since becoming accredited, our electricity usage has been reduced by over 30%. This is due to a change in our overhead office lighting to LED bulbs.

Recycling bins have also been placed around the office to encourage our staff to make conscious decisions about their waste and to reduce the negative impact this waste can have on the environment. We have also taken this opportunity to implement compostable waste bins.

Low levels of chemicals such as carbon monoxide and formaldehyde can be removed from indoor environments by plant leaves alone – so we have decided to distribute a number of plants that specifically target air purification. Of course they are nice to have around, too.

We are continuously improving our environmental practices, including our next initiative, which is a multi-layered effort to reduce paper usage. Watch this space!
