When at Work


WWF-Philippines encourages energy and waste-saving measures to reduce impact on the environment. Reduction, re-use and recycling are the key to our working practices – make them yours, too.

  1. Getting to Work

    • Use public transport, cycle or walk rather than using a car.
    • Carpool with colleagues who live near you or on your route.
  2. Company Policy

    • If your company has an established environmental policy, consider applying for formal accreditation to an environmental management standard.
    • Find out whether your place of work uses "green" or renewable energy. If not, encourage it to change.
    • Switch off lights in meeting rooms and turn off computers and electrical appliances when they are not being used.
    • Find out whether your company uses recycled paper, and if not, encourage it to change.
    • Encourage your company to invest ethically, but ensure that professional advice is taken first.
  3. Personal Policy

    • Set your airconditioning units at 25-26°C and back it up with electric fans.
    • Make sure all office doors are closed to avoid cold air escaping.
    • Print on both sides of the paper.
    • Use e-mail where appropriate, rather than faxing or writing.
    • Re-use envelopes
    • Recycle paper after use.
