South West businesses are being encouraged to think about how they can help bring green issues to the fore.
As part of the ‘Big Green Week’, leadership organisation Business West, has devised staff activities.
Here, employees will learn about the environment, take part in a swap shop to recycle unwanted items and help to reduce waste.
Green competitions, a lunch-time ‘walk in the woods’ and a wear green to work day will also support charity, TreeBristol, the city council’s tree planting campaign.
Phil Smith, managing director of Business West, said: “We’re really excited about Bristol’s Big Green Week and inspiring green action amongst our staff with a week of fun-packed ‘green’ initiatives.
“We have deliberately ensured that all our events this week are light-hearted. But there is a serious aspect and at Business West, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously.
“Our ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems certification demonstrates our commitment to the environment and ensures that we effectively manage and improve the environmental aspects of our business activities.
“Of course Business West’s team of environmental advisers, who deliver the “Improving Your Resource Efficiency” service are heavily involved in Big Green Week and are on hand to deal with requests for the free advisory service that helps businesses examine how they can improve their financial and environmental performance.”
