“Going Green” is more than just a slogan you will find on the cover of a reusable shopping bag; it most likely describes the process of changing one’s lifestyle for the safety and benefit of the environment. Going Green With Officense A greener workplace can mean a lighter ecological footprint, a healthier and more productive place to work, and good news for the bottom line. Did you know that an average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year and that U.S. citizens alone throw out over four million disposable pens daily? Find out how you can implement simple steps on your way to a greener office environment.   1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 
  • Install recycling stations in high-traffic and easy accessible areas and locate explicit instruction labels on the bins.
  • Recycle just about any kind of paper you would encounter in an office including fax paper, envelopes, or junk mail.
  • Print smarter by printing on both sides of paper and using a smaller font.
  • Stock the office with reusable pens and refills.
2. Go paperlessOffice Worker with Mountain of Paperwork
  • Make it a habit to think before you print: eliminate waste in printing by increasing the numbers of digital storage devices and systems (external hard drive, cloud computing etc.)
  • Set up files to save emails instead of having a print version.
  • Instead of printing a meeting agenda, incorporate it as a slide show or send it via email.
3. Conserve to preserve
  • Use daylight whenever you can and turn off lights in spaces that are unoccupied.
  • Save 75 % of energy and cut energy costs by using compact fluorescent bulbs, which last about 10 times longer than conventional incandescent light bulbs.
  • Check that all computers/monitors are set to their most energy efficient settings and make sure to shut them down at the end of the day.
  • Adjust thermostat settings to no higher than 68 degrees Fahrenheit during winter month and no lower than 78 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer.
4. Telecommute or reconsider your transportation
  • Contemplate carpooling, taking public transportation, biking or walking to minimize the approximate 23 billion gallons of gas wasted in traffic each year.
  • If you have the opportunity to work from home and take advantage of instant messaging, phone conferencing and invest in video conferencing.

  • Purchase chlorine-free paper with 100% recycled content for printing and copying.
  • Use biodegradable soaps, dish detergent and cleaners.
  • Replace disposable paper cups with washable, reusable mugs.
  • Replace the office coffee with a fair-trade,  shade-grown or organic version.

Officense is proud to announce the addition of video conferencing services. Video conferencing provides an innovative and powerful channel of professional communication with the ability to visually correspond with one’s counterparts nationally or internationally instantaneously. “One of the key strategic objectives for OFFICENSE, since it became independent April 2010, was to offer its clients the freedom to work with their clients/vendors in any city they desired – cost effectively. Last year we partnered with a virtual office network that extends our reach into over 750 offices worldwide. The beginning of this year, at the request of several of our clients who wished to save on travel cost and time, we are launching video conferencing based on our clients’ interest in this service. Now they can hold legal depositions, board meetings or presentations at a moment’s notice.” says Michael McNulty.
