    How does your company encourage good environmental stewardship in how employees manage their virtual offices?

    Tasks to complete:

    – We have a written policy encouraging environmentally preferred products and practices in employee virtual offices (e.g. recycling)

    – We have a policy in place for the safe disposal of e-waste and other hazardous materials purchased for employee home offices

    The company’s policy on Virtual Office Stewardship and Remote Work has been drafted and sent for publication to the company’s website. Note Section 3. on Environmental Stewardship: “Maven Hemp encourages the use of environmentally preferred products, such as low or non-VOC paints, non-toxic cleaners, waste-free office supplies, FSC-certified paper products, and practices such as recycling and composting.

    The Company provides all employees with:

    Local sources of environmentally preferred products that are relevant to the geographical area where employees operate from during periods of remote work.

    Locally-relevant guidelines for the safe disposal of electronic waste and hazardous materials.

    Guidelines for environmentally-friendly home office practices, including recycling, composting, upcycling.”

    and Section 4. on Electronic Waste:

    “We aim to meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility and waste management in all aspects of our operations. Due to the use of electronic equipment during our daily operations, we recognize the need of handling “e-waste” disposal in a responsible manner in line with global and local regulations, best practices and standards. As such, all employees will be provided with information related to e-waste disposal regulations, requirements and procedures that are relevant to their location of work. The Company expects that all employees will follow standards and procedures in alignment with the information provided to them related to e-waste disposal.”

    @Selena please review and confirm when the Policy has been published.

    @Selena Section 4.2. has been added to the Policy:

    4.2. We request that all of our employees working from virtual offices, remote locations, and home offices, ensure to dispose of all of their e-waste with a local recycling provider in accordance with environmental best practices. If the electronic equipment you are disposing of or recycling was provided to you by the Company for the purpose of your employment duties, you will need to send us a formal request to proceed with recycling or disposal through an approved service. We will require proof that the equipment was either recycled or disposed of through that specific approved service.
