British firms are losing money because of their sub-standard environmental practices, one specialist has claimed.

Many companies falsely believe that it is too expensive for them to stay green and reduce their energy costs, but Gregg Corbett, marketing director at Avery and founder of Green Office Week, believes that cash can be saved by being more mindful of energy use.

"The truth is, in a business with poor environmental practices, staff often leave personal computer monitors on, open windows when the heating is on and leave printers on overnight," Mr Corbett explained.

He also stated that the day-to-day actions of staff have a direct impact on an organisation's finances.

One firm that is aiming to boost its green credentials is Apex Acquisitions, which has introduced a new energy efficiency policy.

This move will see the recycling of ink cartridges encouraged across the business, while operating costs will also be reduced as part of the measure.
