Globally, offices are becoming a major driver of climate change as computers, data storage and communication networks suck up energy at an increasing rate. And 20 per cent of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions came from transporting people, including daily commuting and business travel. What's more, two-thirds of waste comes from commercial and industrial sources.
The David Suzuki at Work program for organizations and businesses can help you get on the path to workplace sustainability. Inside the pages of the online toolkit, you can find information about how to reduce waste, form "green teams", decrease energy usage and save money. Find out from leading business professionals what it takes to make your workplace sustainable.
