What did Oney Insurance team do for the European Sustainable Development Week 2019?the 10/06/19
The consequences of climate change and the need to reduce carbon footprints are key issues today and they concerned everyone. Thus, during the European Sustainable Development Week, the team decided to organise workshops to develop an eco-friendlier behaviour at the office. The idea was to raise awareness on actions to implement on our daily life to reduce our impact on the Earth.
Various activities were organised: some quizzes about water footprint, digital pollution and environment awareness with all team members. In particular, we wanted to ensure they are more aware of the issue and the impact on our actions. In the end, some key points to check were discussed in order for people to quickly put in place. From switching off the A/Cs and the lights to sending less emails…, we will now work on decreasing our carbon footprint. Moreover, tips are equally shared on our Intranet to help everyone to reduce energy consumption (water, electricity, usage of plastic…) at the office and at home.
Finally, a clean-up session near our office took place. We invited the team members to participate in picking up the trash in the street and near the sea. In the end, we succeeded in filling around ten bags in one hour. We are quite happy with the result and we hope to do it again later this year.
