Carbon footprints are becoming increasingly important in the workplace. This change could make an impact on how companies are designed and what information they need to disclose to the public. With that, organizations can expect a cost increase to set up these infrastructures that have a low carbon footprint. While the regulations in the United States aren’t nearly as strict as in Europe, the government will still be tracking and reporting on these insights.
The interior design of offices is something that will also need to be considered when thinking of carbon footprints. Some companies are working towards a more biodiverse environment and incorporating more plant life within the office space. Others are trying to do more research and be more aware of their overall carbon impact. We can anticipate more technology advancements as companies work to implement designs that pass these requirements. Even the overall aesthetics will have a more ecologically friendly approach to it.
The overall goal is to be Net Zero by the year 2050. This means that there needs to be a lot of updates made to current and future organizations. The shift will require sustainability experts, but with a collective effort, we should see a healthier planet and healthier people too.
