Recently, workplaces have faced numerous challenges, including how to successfully adapt to changing circumstances and ways of working, such as finding that all important balance between home and office bases.

However, throughout this, we have continued to see an emergence of sustainable solutions as an important method of making employees feel comfortable within their workspace.

In today's society, and looking ahead to the future, environmentally responsible design represents a conscious move towards reducing our ecological footprint by saving energy and natural resources. The modern-day workspace should not only be functional, but also be able to sustain itself for years to come.

It has become the expectation of both colleagues and customers that places of work should take more and more responsibility for their environmental footprint, making the right choice by buying into the concept of green design. By creating an atmosphere which promotes sustainability, you can ensure colleagues feel comfortable and at ease, which can result in increased productivity.

At the centre of the sustainable workplace sit eco-friendly materials, often sourced locally in order to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation. At Banner, we are proud to offer sustainable office furniture options using raw materials sourced from responsibly managed forests using the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) chain of custody. We are also proud to work with suppliers who pioneer sustainability at their UK based operating sites.

Additionally, strict FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association) quality and sustainability standards provide peace of mind for customers that furniture will not only meet health and safety, ergonomic and corporate social responsibility requirements, but will also stand the test of time.

The most important message here is that a sustainable workplace can save energy, money and, most importantly, the planet. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to achieving the right design for your business, as different factors will come into play. However, once sustainability becomes a priority, little things can start to make a big difference.
