What is world environment day?
World Environment Day or WED is a chance to encourage everyone worldwide to raise awareness and action for the environment.
This year World Environment Day takes place on Friday 5th June 2015 and the theme is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.” The idea is that to safeguard the longevity of the planet, we must put boundaries in place and live within those boundaries to make sure that we are living sustainably.
Did you know? – If we carry on at the current rate of consumption and production, by 2050 we will need three planets to sustain our way of living based on an expected rising population of 9.6 million*
How can OfficeTeam get involved?
Here at OfficeTeam we do our part for the environment as well as actively encouraging our customers to do the same. We have a range of environmentally friendly products and the resources in place to help reduce our carbon footprint by implementing a number of innovative and award-winning environmental schemes over the last few years.
The organisers of World Environment Day have enlisted a team of well know names and faces to help promote this year’s campaign. All these well know faces have made different pledges with the hope to inspire and encourage others to do the same. Although we haven’t pledged this year, we always do our upmost to ensure that as a company we do the best we can for the planet. All departments work closely to promote recycling and the use of our eco-friendly products, while our logistics department work tirelessly to reduce our delivery fleet’s mileage and carbon emissions. Through these actions we were able to reduce our carbon emissions by a total of 2,436 tonnes in 2012.
We know that the planets condition is something that we should all care about and is something that continuously needs to be monitored. This is why here at OfficeTeam we are always seeking new ways to reduce our impact on the environment. We constantly review our delivery routes, delivery vehicles, the products we purchase and our recycling initiatives.
