Does making a business sustainable start with the employees or the management?

    It could start either way. Employees can take steps to green their workspace as much as possible. Starting with things like choosing more efficient lighting for their workspace, using less paper, carpooling to work, wasting less at work and talking with coworkers about ways to become more sustainable. They could also talk to their employer about taking efforts to become more sustainable, including showing them ways to save money by becoming more sustainable. On the other hand, management can choose to implement more sweeping sustainability improvements, like changing all lighting to reduce electricity use, putting efficient aerators on all the faucets in the workplace, using printers that print on both sides of the paper. Finding ways to reduce the amount of chemicals used and more.

    But these are only a start!
