We have plenty of tips to save energy in our homes, but what about the workplace? Can we do more to reduce the amount of energy we use? We all know that at home, we should unplug devices when not in use, reduce water consumption, keep the thermostat at low temperatures and do a bit of batch cooking while the oven’s on.
But what about the workplace? Are there simple tips that we could all take on board to reduce the energy used in the workplace?
Back in June I shared a blog post about Digital Leaders Week and what I’d learnt over the course of the week. One of my personal highlights was a session on Tech Net Zero with my colleague Cory Hughes. This was one of a number of talks focused on ‘Green Tech’ that, along with getting me thinking about tech net zero, organisations and green tech, shared some great tips on saving energy in the workplace.
At Perago we often structure roadmaps for change using a ‘now’ ‘next’ and ‘later approach’. It’s a way to initially plans change and break it down into manageable chunks without getting too hung up on dates. I’ve looked at these tips in the same way, what you can do now, what you should then consider and finally the actions you can pick up in the longer term.

We also need to look at the long term, strategic steps that should be considered. They may require the support of other people or financial support or long term strategies.
Cory discussed some of them in her session during DL Week and will be sharing more in our next blog post.
