Measures such as installing smilight tubes that use less energy than their predecessors may be part of a wide variety of sustainability improvements that one expert has stated will save companies money.
Dr Paula Owen, founder and director of Paula Owen Consulting, asserted that all companies should be taking steps to ensure they use resources efficiently.
"If nothing else [this will] save them money on the bottom line," she stated.
The expert observed that organisations that take steps to become more efficient - which may include installing energy saving bulbs in their offices - will reduce their running costs.
While some improvements may require a significant outlay at the start, there are plenty of other steps that cost a minimal amount to implement, Dr Owen added.
This comes after founder of KLS Lighting Design Kristina Simpson observed that fluorescent tubes are ideal lighting options for office and retail space and that they last a lot longer than old T12 tubes.
