Can business owners and employees agree on eco-standards?
Francesca Brady

Throughout history, workers have demanded better conditions while management has tried to minimise any associated costs. For the first time, it appears that technology has finally aligned the interests of both sides, signaling the start of a new, eco-friendly era in the corporate world. In fact, this transformation is already underway, with many companies rapidly adopting smart technology that actively improves the quality of air, keeps room temperature at the desired level and automatically performs actions which enhance office conditions.

Let’s look at some of the factors that have motivated employers to implement innovations that positively affect the environment within the workplace:

Multi-purpose technology

A good reason why business owners should be open-minded towards green technology is that they probably already own the majority of the necessary hardware. Many modern eco-control solutions are cloud-based with remote servers owned and handled by a third-party, while on the client side, PC’s or smartphones can be used to quickly and easily gain access to data. Smart facilities management systems have uses beyond environmental protection, making it even easier for owners to justify the investment.

Focus on efficiency

In most industries, globalisation is causing increased competition and companies are desperately searching for any kind of edge in the marketplace. In such circumstances, productivity is valued more than ever before, as few brands can afford to hire additional people whenever they need a boost. Business owners understand the importance of keeping employees healthy, happy and focused. As such, they are willing to pay for office improvements if that’s likely to cause a spike in production or refinement of service capacity. Meanwhile, employees are motivated to work harder if they can spend their time in a comfortable, safe and healthy place.

Changing public opinion

Companies want to be seen in a positive light, so they spare no expense to meet expectations and maintain a successful public image. Thirty years ago, that meant buying an elaborate downtown building with reflexive glass windows; now the standards often include smart systems that automatically adjust air composition. Leading brands are choosing to push the limits and introduce new, more impressive systems for office maintenance to help them attract new talent and keep existing employees happy. Adherence to high ecological standards also has a positive impact on marketing, so any investment in this sphere is very beneficial.

Third-party services

While some organisations are experimenting with solar panels and locally grown food, many business owners would prefer to outsource the ecology aspect to a specialised provider. The availability of such services has greatly improved across all developed countries, while the costs are becoming more reasonable. Even smaller organisations can now afford to implement at least basic eco-controls, for example monitoring CO2 and carbon monoxide levels in the offices. As the market for this type of service continues to grow, more cost-effective solutions could be around the corner.

Believe it or not, employers and workers finally seem to be on the same page. Eco-standards make sense for everyone, and companies that resist implementing a green technology solution will have a hard time competing for the most talented employees in the future.
