Using our national exposure to create positive change
The following are some things that we are doing in the Royal Services office to reduce our carbon footprint:
A greener workplace can mean a lighter ecological footprint, a healthier and more productive place to work, and good news for the bottom line. Whether you're the boss or the employee, whether your office is green already or still waiting to see the light, some practical steps can lay the groundwork for a healthy, low-impact workspace.
As a national facility management company, we have a great opportunity to positively change multiple locations within a very short space of time. The following are examples of things that we are currently working on that allow our partners to become more environmentally conscious:
Retrofitting lighting systems
Installation of Smart Thermostats
Reusing materials when possible - In April 2017 we completed a nationwide fixture removal project for an international telecommunications company. 3 display cases were removed from each location, and these were donated to the local Goodwill stores, allowing us to benefit the local community and environment at the same time.
Sourcing vendors and materials from as close to the worksite as possible without negatively impacting quality of workmanship.
Improving insulation to control temperature more efficiently, thus reducing energy requirements.
