Give the Green Light to a Green Team

September 22nd, 2014 by Alison McKinney | No Responses

Green teams and employee engagement. These two buzz words seem to be gaining traction.

Keeping employees engaged, happy and productive has always been a
 priority for leading organisations.

Today, as green 
becomes more mainstream, 
a
 growing 
number 
of
 employees want to work for an organisation that is committed to sustainability and look for a work setting where the green values they practice at home are implemented in the workplace.

“Out of all those millions and millions of planets floating around there in space, this is our planet, this is our little one, so we just got to be aware of it and take care of it.” – Sir Paul McCartney

Establishing “green teams” in the workplace is an inspiring way for organisations to motivate employees, increase employee engagement and shift strategies towards encouraging and forging a more sustainable path. This is becoming increasingly important as more stakeholders are expecting organisations to alleviate their impact on people and the planet – and … read more »

Reducing Our Impact On The Environment

May 28th, 2014 by Alison McKinney | No Responses

We at The Survey Initiative are absolutely committed to reducing our impact on the environment and have established a carbon neutral policy.

One of the actions we take to show our commitment is to continue to conduct communications online to reduce paper usage and waste where-ever possible. As an employee research company producing bespoke employee engagement surveys, we’ve developed technology that allows participants to complete their survey electronically, as well as review their reports electronically, either through e-mail, website or mobile applications. We aim to continue to develop how the data is presented electronically to both meet the needs of our clients and also contribute to our commitment to reducing the use of paper.

So, today, we’d like to share some tips with you about how you can go paperless in the office, reduce paper waste in the workplace, and what the benefits are.

Tips to becoming paperless

Mighty Oaks From Little Acorns Grow

January 30th, 2014 by Alison McKinney | 1 Response

We’re branching out and are getting very excited about the recent growth of our company, resulting in new members joining the team and an influx of new clients to work in partnership with.

It occurred to me on my way into work this morning, looking around at the baron trees and wondering when they’ll be in bud and full again, that my link to trees is not just relevant to our company growing from small beginnings.  It also has a significant relevance to the ethos we have about reducing our carbon footprint and doing ‘our bit’ to help our environment.

Of course, we are actively carrying out the obvious measures to keep ‘green’.  We try and use as little paper as possible in the office, our light bulbs are energy saving ones, insulation in the office has improved, we car share and use public transport when travelling to meetings, we like to use local suppliers wherever possible and we have ‘hippo’s’ in … read more »

Growing green!

June 25th, 2013 by Jaime Johnson | No Responses

Just a little update for you all!

Further to our commitment at the beginning of the year we have been working hard to boost our green credentials with the launch of a new scheme to plant a tree to celebrate every new client win. This month alone we have won four new contracts and hope to expand on this level of activity throughout 2013.

We have been carbon neutral since our launch in 2006 and by joining forces with the Woodland Trust they are set to further our environmentally-friendly actions over the next 12 months.

 

Carbon neutral policy launched

March 14th, 2011 by Jaime Johnson | No Responses

Having undertaken a commitment to reduce our impact on the climate we have developed a carbon management strategy for going carbon neutral.

The strategy highlights our intention to audit our carbon footprint annually and sets out a number of actions which we intend to implement and review our progress against. The aim being to work to reduce our impact in the long term and hopefully in doing so, generate some cost savings.

Highlighted actions

  • In the short term buy emission reduction to enable us to make real emission reductions now and to help us to price the cost of carbon into our budgets.
  • Raise staff awareness by encouraging them to undertake online training modules with the Carbon Trust www.carbontrust.co.uk.
  • We already conduct much of our communications online and propose continue to do so to reduce paper usage and waste.
  • For necessary trips, we will aim where possible to use public transport, try to plan more than one meeting in … read more »
