GPI in the media
 

Energy Conservation Initiatives

GPI leases its office space.  However, GPI maintains a certain control over energy useage by having separate lighting switches throughout the office premises which allows us to not turn on lights in areas when not required.  In addition, GPI has a certain control over the programming of the heating/air conditioning useage and tries to minimize consumption without jeopardizing the required level of comfort in the office environment.  GPI staff shut down their computers at the end of each day.  When available, GPI sources office equipment with power saver modes (eg. printer, fax, monitors).

GPI’s office space is convenient for public transit (on a major bus route) and staff are encouraged to use public transit (periodic plans have been implemented to cover bus pass costs).  Some staff voluntarily use bicycles to get to work when the weather is suitable.
