Summer is here again, and so too is ACCIONA’s Energy Savings, Casual Attire and Sustainability Plan, a pioneering initiative in which air conditioning is set to 23-24ºC allowing employees to dress more casually and do away with ties or suits.
These measures contributed 57,500kWh-worth of energy savings, and avoided the emission into the atmosphere of 17.3 metric tons of CO2 at corporate headquarters in Madrid alone last year. But above all, we get to raise awareness of the Company’s sustainability values among staff. What are your thoughts on this plan? Would you be willing to put up with slightly higher room temperatures if it meant saving energy in your office or at home?
