Objective  To  reduce  the  carbon  foot-­‐print  of  our  office  to  zero  by  eliminating  unnecessary  waste  and  by  reducing  or  off-­‐setting  unavoidable  waste.    What  is  waste?  Unnecessary  waste:  anything  that  needs  to  be  discarded  after  single  use  or  cannot  be  recycled.  E.g.  plastic  glasses,  platic  bags.  Unavoidable  waste  or  acceptable  waste:  anything  that  can  be  reused  over  long  periods  of  time  or  can  be  easily  recycled.  E.g.  paper,  ink  cartridges.    What  aspects  of  the  office  are  covered?   Garbage  disposal   Paper  and  stationery   Air-­‐conditioning  and  electricity   Computer  and  electronic  equipment    How  do  we  do  this?  We  will  implement  this  initiative  in  a  phased  manner  to  avoid  undue  burden  on  company  time  and  cost,  starting  with  hygiene  things  and  moving  on  to  more  advanced  ways  to  conserve  and  maybe  even  give  back  to  the  environment.      Phase  1:     Garbage  Disposal   1   Garbage  bags   We  will  not  be  using  plastic  bags  for  our  garbage  bins  anymore.  All  “wet”   garbage  should  be  thrown  directly  in  corridor  garbage  bins.   2   Plastic  glasses   Everyone  should  use  a  water  bottle  /  glasses  to  drink  water  and  other  liquids.   If  you  don’t  have  one,  it  will  be  provided  to  you.     3   Plastic  cutlery   No  plastic  cutlery  will  be  allowed  in  the  office.  Please  get  reusable  cutlery   from  home  if  required.   4   Plastic  bags   When  someone  brings  an  item  to  the  office  in  a  plastic  bag,  take  the  item  and   return  the  plastic  bag.  If  not  possible,  store  plastic  bags  in  the  pantry  for   future  use.  Do  NOT  throw  a  plastic  bag  in  the  garbage.   5   Mats  for  Lunch   There  will  be  reusable  mats  placed  in  the  pantry,  to  be  used  instead  of   newspaper.   Paper  and  Stationery   1   Recycling  Paper   ALL  DRY  PAPER  must  be  stored  in  the  recycling  bin  and  is  not  to  be  thrown   away  in  garbage.  This  will  be  handed  over  to  recyclekaro.com   2   E-­‐billing   Do  not  send  printed  invoices  unless  expressly  asked  by  the  client.  Educate  the   client  about  how  paper  billing  is  no  longer  required  by  the  govt.   3   Recycled  Printing   Only  recycled  printing  paper  will  be  available  in  the  office  for  printing  from   Paper   now  on.   4   Stationery   Do  not  discard  plastic  pens  after  the  ink  is  over.  Get  a  refill  from  the   stationery.
