Our actions leave a mark on our world, and some of them may be damaging to the environment and, in the end, to us. It is no surprise that news and conversations about climate change have flooded the media; the polar ice caps are melting, and global temperatures are rising. Because many of these activities take place at work, corporations, governments, and pro-environmental organizations are starting to reconsider what we do and how we do it.
Going green is the only way to ensure that future generations inherit a livable world. This entails a shift in work and workplace design to guarantee that we leave the environment in a sound and healthy state. However, it is more than just that! Going green in the workplaces has many benefits for the workplace as well. Indeed, buildings and workplaces are experiencing tangible results in a variety of areas, including decreased costs, increased worker productivity, and increased employee engagement.
