Barbados-based businessman Elvin Nash is the general manager of Productive Business Solutions (PBS) in Barbados. PBS is an Authorized Distributor for Xerox, which provides printing and business services for companies around the world. With global climate change threatening to cause problems around the world, it is vital for offices to find ways to make their day-to-day operations more environmentally friendly. Luckily, with the growth of technology, this is easier to do that ever, and you do not have to sacrifice the functionality that you need.
- – Organize your printing so that you only use paper for the things you really need. With the high tech printers that Xerox offers, you can easily print double sided copies, condense documents so they take up less paper, and organize your documents so that nothing gets printed unless it is essential.
- – Make sure your office equipment is running on energy efficient settings. Put them to sleep if you are not using them, and turn them off when you leave the office. This is such a simple thing to do, but it can greatly affect the amount of energy you are using.
- – Carpool with your coworkers or find alternative means of transportation. This can be anything from walking to biking to taking public transit. You could even telecommute to work once or twice a week if your job allows. By reducing your reliance on cars (and fossil fuels), you are also reducing your carbon footprint.
As the general manager of PBS Barbados, Elvin Nash Barbados promotes efficient and effective business practices such as these.
