Open plan offices: How will it make our office greener?
Asked 5 months ago
Hey, I am the office manager of a marketing firm, and I am looking to optimize our current workspace. One of the most important factors to us as a company when creating this new workspace is to make it greener. Employee feedback prior to the restructuring announcement suggested that an open plan office would be preferred. Will an open plan make our office inherently more energy efficient? Thanks in advance

Open-plan offices can indeed make your workspace more energy efficient, as well as greener overall. By minimizing the number of walls and dividing structures, these offices allow for improved air circulation and reduce the need to use artificial lighting and heating systems.
Additionally, they also encourage collaboration between employees and allow teams to be more creative, which further helps in increasing efficiency and reducing energy consumption. Furthermore, open-plan workspaces can also help save on costs associated with office furniture by removing the need to purchase multiple desks or chairs for each workspace.
