Sign the Green Pledge The Green Business Handbook

Some Lebanese companies and organizations have already passed the green light. Here are some examples:

  • The hospital is surrounded with green outdoor areas which are well maintained by the hospital
  • Implemented an Internal Waste Management System
  • Segregate our wastes internally and export them to “Arc en Ciel” from a medical waste room following to the Environmental Services Standards
  • Planning on establishing a solar system to provide the hospital with the needed energy

  • Since the beginning of the year 2016, Prodent SAL is committed to a waste management plan in cooperation with Arcenciel, based on separating the trash in the related bins divided between papers and cartons/ plastic/ metal
  • Backed our plan with a paperless communication and a healthiest conduct, along with several eco-friendly changes made at Prodent such as switching our lighting into LED
  • Installed the first solar system to companies in Lebanon back in 2008. This year we have invested again in a brand new system with double capacity helping us saving energy by providing electricity to our servers and our IT infrastructure, contributing also in avoiding CO2 emission

  • Remove personal bins and centralize waste and recycling system
  • Ensure heating and cooling systems are optimally setup and temperature is set between (20-22 degree C.)
  • Implement default double sided printing
  • Setup a printer friendly email signature for all staff. Here’s a simple and short example of what u can say: “Please consider the environment before printing this email.”
  • Install timers on printers to ensure shut down after office hours
  • Replace inefficient high energy light bulbs with lower voltage energy saving lights
  • Encourage staff to use scrap paper for internal notes by giving each staff member a scrap paper box on their desk
  • Ensure boilers, AC units and radiators are properly maintained through an annual service
  • Implement a comprehensive recycling scheme to recycle cardboard, plastics, glass, CDs, batteries, fluorescent tubes, IT equipment and so on
  • Optimize the use of natural light and ventilation, as much as we can
  • Transporting our staff in buses to reduce car usage

  • Future Initiatives:
  • Implement a switch off campaign for lights and office equipment
  • Buy organic products and fair trade teas and coffees
  • Purchase recycled paper and green office stationary
  • Put water hippos in the toilet cisterns to reduce flush volume and save water
  • Invest in automatic power shut down software or plugs to switch off IT equipment after office hours
  • Have all residual landfill waste collected by a waste contractor who offers zero to landfill services (i.e. incineration via an energy from waste plant)
  • Write and implement an environmental policy
  • Use non-hazardous and Eco-friendly cleaning products
  • Measure our carbon footprint to identify where our largest impact is and then use a credible carbon offset program to offset any residual emissions that we can’t reduce or mitigate more than we already have
