“Many thanks for arranging the team of volunteers from the chartered surveying company. They completely revamped the garden and created a fantastic new orchard!”

Green Team Days
A Green Team Day is an interactive two hour session to engage and enthuse your employees to take ownership of your business’s environmental performance. Your Green Team Day is tailor-made for your organisation with personalised presentations and activities designed to help you achieve your environmental goals. And why not add a volunteer conservation or team building afternoon to complete the experience for your employees?
Benefits to your business
A Green Team Day can help your business:
- Engage and enthuse employees with your environmental initiatives
- Increase energy, water and waste efficiency
- Reduce the cost of your utility bills
- Discover new ideas for environmental improvement
- Meet Environmental Management System requirements
- Demonstrate to your customers your commitment to sustainability
Pre Green Team Day visit
One month before your Green Team Day our sustainability experts visit your premises to get to know your business and discuss your environmental targets and how your Green Team Day can help achieve them. We gather information, such as energy, water and waste consumption data, to use in the activities and presentations on your Green Team Day and work with you to plan new environmental and cost saving initiatives to launch during the event. The visit lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
Green Team Day programme
Whilst every Green Team Day is different, tailor-made to reflect your business activities and environmental goals, the programme will likely follow…
Introduction and management welcome. A welcome from your CEO (or other decision maker) is a great way to demonstrate that sustainability is taken seriously throughout the organisation and that employees will be supported and recognised for their contributions. Followed by an introduction from your session leader and a look at the importance of environmental issues for businesses.
Your business and the environment. Analysis and discussion of the environmental impacts of your business, based on the information gathered on our pre Green Team Day visit, including a review of initiatives you have already implemented and savings achieved.
Targets and new initiatives. Launch of new initiatives, including those suggested by employees during the session, and, if applicable, explanation of how these fit into your business’s environmental management system. Delegation of responsibilities and the formation of a Green Team to implement your new ideas and ensure engagement throughout your organisation.
Activities and exercises. Interactive activities throughout the session, to get employees thinking and stimulate discussion.
Volunteering & team building
For a full day’s experience for your employees, why not add a volunteer conservation or team-building session to your Green Team Day?
We have numerous projects to choose from including tree planting and footbridge building, volunteering at local community projects and adventure activities such as archery and wall climbing.
Venues & catering
If you would prefer to get out of the office, we can offer a range of inspiring external venues for you to hold your Green Team Day including the award-winning Greenpower Centre in Fontwell or The Millennium Seed Bank at Wakehurst Place near Haywards Heath. We can also arrange fair-trade and locally sourced lunch and refreshments.
Who should attend?
The environmental performance of your business relies on the actions of all your employees. Green Team Days can be delivered for groups of 5 to 30. We can hold up to three sessions in a day so that none of your employees miss out.
