3rd Annual Workplace Green Up

October 27, 2022

We’re excited to share that Workplace Green Up is back for the third year in a row! This year Workplace Green Up will take place during the month of November. This engagement program aims to support sustainability in the work culture of Green Economy London members. The program offers sustainability activities focusing on different target areas that employees can incorporate into their daily work habits.  

Members can earn points over the four weeks by completing sustainability activities to reduce employee’s environmental impact focusing on our four target areas: waste reduction and diversion, water conservation, environmental stewardship, and GHG emissions reduction. Some of the activities this year include participating in an outdoor clean up, attending our waste webinar, eating a meatless meal, and checking for leaks in water faucets. 

Participating employees can submit their activities and projects through social media using the hashtag #WorkplaceGreenUp2022

Schedule:

Week 1: Environmental Stewardship: Nov 1st – 6th 

Week 2: Waste Reduction: Nov 7th – 13th

Week 3: GHG Emissions Reduction: Nov 14th – 20th

Week 4: Water Conservation: Nov 21st – 27th

Rules:

Employees earn points for activities by posting a photo of the activity on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn and tagging Green Economy London using the hashtag #WorkplaceGreenUp2022. We encourage all employees to participate, however, a minimum of two employees from each organization need to post their activities to earn points. Please email Allison at allison@londonevironment.net to indicate that employees from your organization are participating.
