The Facilities Management team adopts energy saving solutions
Applying green processes in the workplace not only creates a healthier environment for employees, reduces unnecessary waste but also recognises the efforts of the business to lead the way for positive change. Implementing such initiatives will not only save on unnecessary expenses in the long run, but will also ensure that the company has a competitive advantage.
As such, our Facilities Management (FM) team have started to make energy conscious changes around the BMMI Tower in Seef. All lights on the 8th and 9th floors are LED and a fresh air system is now being utilised. This system pressurises the building and increases indoor quality by diluting polluted indoor air. Also, the LED lights in the emergency exits are now motion activated, consuming less energy and saving up on electricity costs. For those of you who haven’t noticed, the trim on the tower which was previously a fluorescent blue light is now a red LED trim.
Awareness is being raised not only in regards to the dangers of climate change but the smaller things employees can do in the office to save energy. Going green can be as simple as turning off the lights in vacant offices or more complex through the use of alternative forms of energy, such as solar.
Sustainable initiatives should always stem from the core of the business. If you have any suggestions or would like to champion an energy saving project, contact the Corporate Communications & CSR team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to the FM team for their continued dedication and we anticipate more streamlined and efficient solutions across our various premises!
