Michael Barry, Head of Sustainable Business Operations at Bloomberg discusses the company's sustainability initiatives and approach, especially with regards to its 731 Lexington Avenue headquarters in New York in CoreNet Global's latest insite newsletter.

Our printers default to double-sided printing, and most office paper has recycled content. But just ten years ago, our global offices looked very different.
By identifying areas of opportunity across the company to decrease our environmental impact, we’ve been able to make our company more efficient and resilient, while transforming our culture and avoiding $116 million in operating costs.
