WebEx launch guides for greener offices

Businesses in the U.S. and United Kingdom now have a pair of books to help them buy green products for the office.

Office Depot launched its fourth Green Book Monday, a week after the U.K.'s WebEx released its Green Guide. Both publications offer companies advice on how to incorporate green products and practices into the business landscape.

Office Depot's Green Book is more of a catalogue of nearly 3,000 products that have environmental benefits, such as being recycled, remanufactured, non-toxic, rechargeable ot refillable.

It offers definitions of green terms, such as Green Guard Furniture, as well as check lists and assessment guides to help businesses evaluate their green practices.

The guide also lists office products by environmental attribute, as well as tips and advice.

The Green Guide from WebEx, which is now a part of Cisco, is more of a primer to help companies become more environmentally friendly in terms of information technology.

It focuses on communications, employees, mobile devices, desktop hardware and data storage. It is geared toward employees at every level, dispensing advice for both short-term and long-range products.

It was written in collaboration with The Climate Group, Quocirca, Cisco, Vodafone and Fujitsu-Siemens.
