Going Green with the best of them

Last Tuesday, we nipped down to At-Bristol for the launch of the Go Green scheme – and we were not alone. There was a great turn-out, demonstrating once again why our home town of Bristol deserves its year as European Green Capital.

It’s good timing, as we’ve also been talking about stepping up our Green Stripe activity this year. We’ve always been interested in technology’s potential to reduce energy consumption and increase energy efficiency, but up until now we haven’t been as proactive as we’d like in helping our clients be more energy efficient, and reduce their waste and costs.

So we’re going to be doing more this year to improve our own performance, and our clients’ – keep an eye out for more information about this on the blog, and on our social channels with the hashtag #TheGreenStripe.

The launch was a really interesting session showcasing a number of initiatives under the Green Capital umbrella.  We were particularly interested in The Chrysalis – a social enterprise that every start-up or SME should know about as a great source of recycled or reused furniture and office materials – and the Council’s Workplace Wellbeing Charter, which is something we’re going to be trying to implement ourselves.

First step for us is creating our Action Plan with Go Green – why not do yours as well? Well done to the Go Green team for a great event, kickstarting our efforts to make our Green Stripe the most important stripe of all.
