The Green Office practices were first introduced to Footprint in early 2008, the management and staff warmly welcomed the concept. In late 2009, the Responsible Travel Club (RTC) officially held it workshop with the support from Enerteam (Energy Conservation Research Center), Footprint staff of course took part in this workshop wtih many experience shared and lesson learnt with other staff of member company from RTC.
