Online eco training module - ISS Palvelut Oy

Online environmental training module - ISS Palvelut Oy, WWF's Green Office example 2013

ISS Palvelut Oy in Finland received a Green Office label for its headquarters on March 2012. Environmental aspects have always been important to ISS and its service delivery.

As a large facility management company, ISS has a significant impact on its own as well as its customers’ environmental impacts. ISS specialists are working to decrease the energy consumption and to increase the life cycle of facilities, among other measures.

To increase awareness of environmental impacts, ISS has introduced an online environmental training module. This module is part of ISS’s orientation for all employees and includes detailed information about the environmental aspects of each service. The portion of the module that concentrates on the common environmental issues that everyone can have an effect on is available for ISS’s customers to use in their own environmental work. It has been used especially by those ISS customers that are also a part of the Green Office network.

The module is available on the ISS web site and its use is encouraged during the Finnish Energy Saving Week celebrated every October, for instance.
