An employee normally spends 9 hours at his place of work. Evidently, an adequate hydration system holds vital importance at the workplace. Staying hydrated works the way any non-monetary incentive drives people to perform. On the contrary, dehydration disguises itself in bad behavior, lack of concentration and inefficient performance of employees.
By far, the only handful would be oblivious to the harms of plastic. For executives who advocate ‘No Plastic’ idea at the business conferences, the bulk-buying of single-use plastic cans for their own offices must be outrageously paradoxical! They need to be ecologically-sensitized while implementing the hydration solutions.
The facility manager who follows this approach needs to consider the social and environmental areas while making investing and business decisions, in addition to the economic perspective. “The perspective taken is that for an organization to be sustainable, it must be financially secure, minimize (or ideally eliminate) its negative environmental impacts and act in conformity with societal expectations” (United Nations Industrial Development Organization).
The organization by adopting water-refill stations would be able to reduce a considerable amount of carbon footprint by eliminating the use of fossil-fuel dependent plastic bottles. In addition to reducing plastic, water refill stations with smart energy saving feature and green certifications are eco-efficient in every aspect. The count of plastic bottles avoided with each refill is displayed on the screen on the water-refill stations. This makes it easy to quantify the environmental impact of the business while formulating Triple Bottom Line.
