Energy & Environmental Conservation​

  • Turn all lights off at the end of the business day and when leaving your office or cubicle for any length of time. 
  • Consider installing separate light switches or motion sensors in less occupied rooms, i.e. lunch and storage rooms or individual offices.
  • Turn off computer monitors and other electronics when not in use.
  • Set computers and copier machines to sleep/standby mode for periods of inactivity.
  • Assign someone to check that appliances, electronics and lights are turned off when the office is closing. This also assists in maintaining a safe environment in your premises.
  • Use the Building standard window blinds to assist in temperature control and reduction of energy consumption.
    • Open for natural lighting
    • Closed during periods of direct summer sunlight to avoid heat buildup​ 

  • Dress appropriately for current weather conditions. Dress warmly in colder winter months and cooler during warmer summer months.
  • Do not use space heaters (not permitted in the Building for safety purposes) or fans. Contact Building Management office to report temperature issues. This alerts Building Management to the temperature and airflow variations in heating and cooling equipment and assists in identify areas of concern and/or in need of repair.
  • Promptly report any leaky faucets, water fountains and leaky/running toilets and urinals to Building Management.
  • Use task lighting instead of overhead lighting when possible.
    • Use CFL or LED bulbs to reduce even more energy.

  • Recycle electronic equipment and batteries with the appropriate local resources.
  • Look for the ENERGY STAR® label on light bulbs, appliances, electronics, and other products.

           ENERGY STAR products meet strict efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental

           Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
