Encouragement is the 'best way to keep staff environmentally friendly'
Employers should use incentives to encourage their staff to be more energy efficient in the workplace, it has been suggested.

By running campaigns and taking a more active approach, workers and visitors will be able to see that action is being taken with good results achieved, Morgan Lovell claims.

Some ways to do this could be by turning computers off at night, using technology which turns workstations off automatically or installing live energy data boards which are connected to wireless sub meters.

Lara Conaway, Morgan Lovell's sustainability manager, said: "Make sure that there are dedicated staff who have responsibility for energy reduction included in their job description and consider giving them an incentive to increase efficiencies."

In related news, a report by the Sustainable Development Committee revealed that 22 per cent of the electricity used by the government this year came from renewable sources.
