- Staff energy saving campaign to save electricity and reduce our electricity bills – staff were asked to switch off monitors when going to meetings/lunch, intelli-panels were installed to ensure that when PCs are switched off at the end of the day all peripherals are also turned off, and timer plugs are used on other appliances e.g. printers to ensure they are turned off at evenings and weekends.
- A sustainable procurement policy has been adopted to ensure that whole life costs rather than just the initial capital cost is used to judge value for money when procuring goods and services.
- Members collect their post rather than mailing it out.
- Emails are sent to Parish Councils where possible, rather than posting information.
Many thanks to North Norfolk District Council for these ideas.
