Lower costs on goods, both in the short and long term. Reduced use of goods and recycling provide an increased supply of goods as well as a decreased demand for said goods. Simple economic theory teaches us that this increased supply and/or decreased demand leads to lower costs for goods.
Purchase energy-efficient products for use in the office. Look for consumption ratings on products that make use of hydro and gas. Another positive sign that a product is energy efficient is the Energy

Increased productivity. A cleaner office environment will keep employees happier and consequentially more productive.
Government rebates and incentives. Depending on where you live, there may be municipal, provincial/state-wide, or federal incentives
designed to reward environmental responsibility.
  Natural Resources Canada offers an ongoing series of rebates and incentives for both homeowners and businesses.
