Penang Green Office Project

Penang Green Office Project

Do you switch off your lights when you leave the room?

Do you switch off your computer when you finish work at the end of the day?

Have you ever looked around your office and seen how much paper (single-sided printed A4 paper, bank statements, business cards, post it notes, bill statements etc.) you have lying around that ends up in the wastepaper basket?

Have you thought about the impact (however small) YOU may have on our environment? A little here and a little there, adds up.

Our eco-system is influenced by what we do and how we do it.

While most of us have heard about the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and Zero Waste, it is questionable how many of us are really paying attention to this advice.

Do you know that by using your GREEN SENSE in the office, you would be saving a lot of paper over the course of a whole year? By going green, your office not only stops money from flowing out, but you would also save energy, time and most importantly, the environment!

Penang Green Council (PGC) has come up with the Penang Green Office Project – an assessment tool to help your office to adopt sustainability principles - aimed at helping you and your company save energy, money & the environment!

Applicants from both government and private sectors can now apply for the “2-in-1 certification” - Penang Green Office Project certification and Aqua Save certification by Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang. Successful applicants from private sectors will receive an incentive of up to RM5000 (from Penang Green Council) & stand a chance to receive RM2000 (from Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang) upon recertification.

The Objective:

To support PGC's vision of Penang as a Green State by adopting the Green Office Concept through Education & Implementation of Green Initiativesin the office.


Green Office assessment is open throughout the year.
