Make the most of natural light

Make the most of natural light in workspaces by using artificial light only in poorly lit areas, use equipment in low-power mode and unplug power supplies when not in use.

Adjust the temperature in the office

Insulate windows and air-conditioning ducts to prevent heat and cool loss, and keep the air-conditioning at 21 degrees Celsius in winter and 24 degrees in summer.

Maintain air conditioning equipment

Carry out regular cleaning of air conditioning equipment filters, which prevents consumption peaks due to obstructions, and schedule regular preventive maintenance of the equipment to ensure its proper operation and efficiency.

Avoid using paper as much as possible, reuse it, and properly manage recycling.

Use environmental materials

Use environmentally friendly materials in the construction and design of facilities and carry out regular preventative maintenance on equipment to ensure efficient operation.

Use renewable energy sources

Contract for the supply of electricity from renewable energy sources.
