Green Team Day: Event Report

The Sustainable Business Partnership CIC was asked by a global technology company with a strong commitment to environmental sustainability to help get their employees on board with their ISO:14001 EMS and delivering their environmental Key Performance Indicators.

We held two hour long workshops for staff that began with an introduction from a volunteer from the Environment Team, who highlighted the achievements that have been made at the facility in Burgess Hill. Shelaine Siepel, Director at the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC, continued the introduction before presenting a short film outlining the company’s commitment to “Sustainable Productivity” and highlighting some impressive results that have been achieved across its facilities globally.

Delegates at each workshop enjoyed an environmental quiz focusing on environmental topics and their organisation’s environmental performance,with prizes awarded to the top scoring team in each session. Breakout group sessions enabled delegates to discuss the potential environmental impacts relevant to their work area and come up with actions that could be implemented to improve environmental performance. Delegates were encouraged to assign a timescale and functional responsibility to each action, to assist with taking them forward. The workshops concluded with a group feedback session to share actions identified by each group, with further discussion and questions.

A spokesperson from the company said: “The team from Sustainable Business Partnership CIC facilitated two well attended Environmental Impact Reduction workshops at our Burgess Hill site, pitched at a professional level for our data hungry engineers. The fun and informative workshops challenged employees to consider personal and work related environmental impacts. It’s great to be able to take forward suggestions that will have buy-in, since they were generated by the employees themselves.’

The delegates engaged fully with the discussions and gave positive feedback regarding the workshop on the day. The workshop output was captured by the Sustainable Business Partnership CIC’s team and provided to the company after the event.
