" The nozzle extends and sprays warm water. A dryer function is then used to remove the water."
London, Dec 8 - In a move to ensure environmental sustainability, a futuristic office is here where the energy is supplied by wind farms, bosses drive electric vehicles and employees use apps, digital signatures, and toilet sans paper rolls.

Based in Noordwijk, a town in the west of the Netherlands, the headquarters of the technology firm Decos has gone entirely paperless.

While the minutes for meetings are taken using Decos' own Minute app, contracts are signed using e-signatures and documents are never printed.

Business cards are banned and any post is returned as Decos demands only digital communication, Daily Mail reported.

The building has slanting walls. According to the company, it does not need cabinets. Employees work at flex-stations in open office gardens with glass partitions.

Energy for the building is supplied using a nearby wind turbine park.

All new company cars are either electric or hybrid.

Shower toilets in the office are fitted with an integrated nozzle in the basin of a traditional-looking toilet.

The nozzle extends and sprays warm water. A dryer function is then used to remove the water.

Decos is not aiming to develop robots and machine learning products to help other firms go paperless, the report added.
