For the fifth year running the Environmental Committees of Interorient Shipmanagement’s group put together a programme to support a full week of events to raise environmental awareness amongst the staff and also to assist charities within the local communities.
Each day had a daily theme and events and presentations were planned addressing the specific daily theme with informative videos also being sent to staff throughout each day.
The daily themes were: Global Warming & Climate Change, Marine Environment, Energy Day, Earth Day and Green Friday where everyone was encouraged to wear green to the office.
Local charities were supported with donations of unwanted clothing and household items, dog food and blankets were collected for a local dog shelter and money was raised from the end of week celebration of a sponsored run, walk and cycle and used to purchase food vouchers to be given to local families in need over Christmas.
A book swap took place throughout the week, a tree planting exercise and a photo competition were also arranged where staff submitted photos they had taken of positive and negative examples of environmental efforts within their local area.
