KPMG in Ukraine cares of the environment:
- We launched the Green Office programme in KPMG in Ukraine.
- We support environmental projects, planting trees, environmental activities for business and media and the "Earth Hour".
Key steps within the frame of the Green Office programme:
- Conducting meetings virtually as an alternative to travel
- Eliminating bottled water from conference centers
- Promoting the use of stairs instead of elevators and escalators to curb energy use and get in shape as an added bonus
- Turning off desk and office lights when leaving the office or conference rooms
- Powering down PCs and monitors when away from one's desk
- Implementing power-saving settings on all computers
- Scanning documents to a portable document format (PDF) to share electronically
- Printing double-sided whenever possible
- Donating used cell phones to various charitable organizations
- Using coffee mugs and water bottles instead of disposable cups
- Promoting the use of rechargeable batteries
- Collecting used office supplies (e.g., binders, pens, notepads, etc.) and redistributing
