Careers: Office workers keen to go green

MORE employees want to work in an environmentally-friendly office, with three-quarters classing it among their top priorities.

One-fifth said it will become the top priority for businesses in the future and companies claim it will become more important than factors such as staff retention and regulatory compliance.

However, despite the survey from communications group Affiniti showing a desire to become more environmentally friendly, many companies still do not have a green policy in place.

Only 5% operate a carbon trading scheme and 80% still condone unnecessary business travel. According to the survey, new working practices such as improved technology will aid green practices which, in turn, should result in more people working from home.

Gary Young, managing director at Affiniti, said: ‘Organisations and employees alike must understand how communications technology such as wireless working, video conferencing and mobile technology will help drive this revolution.’
