We pledged to reduce our plastic use…
As part of our campaign, we encouraged our employees to make a personal pledge to reduce their plastic use.
Deborah Parker, Capita property director, said, “One of the responsibilities of the Capita Property Team is to look at the way our operations impact the environment. We know that our biggest impacts are from the energy we use to light, heat and cool our premises, the waste we generate and the travelling we do to get our work done. As a property team, we can make some changes to the way we manage our buildings.”
We have been looking at ways to minimise our plastic use. To start things off, we have removed plastic cups from 28 of our sites - covering 16% of our UK population. We are continually looking for ways to reduce our plastic use.
I am delighted at the response we had to Capita’s Green Week. Our message was simple; say no to plastic and no to travel. It is great to see how many people pledged to stop using plastic in their daily lives and how many people are taking advantage of Office 365 to collaborate and link up with people across Capita. Thank you to everyone that got out into nature and volunteered – your efforts were very much appreciated in the local communities. We all have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment and all the small changes we made in Green Week and beyond add up to big changes. Together, we can and will make a difference.
