Trip to FRN conference inspires a Greener Office!

Trip to FRN conference inspires a Greener Office! Archive Last weekend Fergus and Jon attended the FRN Conference on behalf of R3-Online, UE's recycling management software, to demo its new features and show how it can help furniture re-use projects with their recycling management.

Both came back to the office brimming with ideas and were full of great feedback. Jon said “It was great to meet so many organisations and attend some really inspiring talks. I now feel motivated to build on our company’s current environmental policy and aim to make Urban Element a truly eco-friendly company.” 

Urban Element have already been aiming to become a paperless office but where necessary, uses recycled paper and a naturally responsible printing process provided bySeacourt, a local company that produces 0% waste. The furniture in our office is a combination of recycled and new furniture from companies that support the FRN and we have changed all the lights in our building from T8’s to T5 energy efficient bulbs. Despite this there is still a lot more both R3-Online and the whole of Urban Element can do to reduce our environmental impact. There are now plans to improve our current recycling process and we are investigating into fitting solar panels on the office roof. As well as these efforts we are looking for more innovative ways we can make our office greener; if you have any ideas or advice why not contribute to our Quora question or @reply us on Twitter.
