Environment-friendly offices for sustainable workplaces

EU-OSHA promotes green initiatives to support the creation of healthier and more sustainable workplaces. The Agency has already implemented many actions within its premises, such as using energy-efficient electrical appliances, waste recycling, eco-friendly cleaning products and donating no longer needed assets to ensure their further use.

The latest green initiatives target the reduction of carbon footprint. No more plastics at work – bottle glasses were offered to staff and new type of fountain was connected to the building water supply. Besides, hand-blower-dryers replaced the paper-towels.

Such little changes do not only have a positive impact on the environment, but also ensure good working conditions for staff.
