Oktra is proud to celebrate our Green Week, running from 5th-10th November.
This will be a week where we introduce some major improvements to our plans for reducing our carbon footprint.
By increasing awareness of our impact on the environment, we can aspire to build more sustainable and eco-friendly projects.
Our line-up for the week:
Earlier this year we conducted an internal survey asking our team what they thought about our ‘green’ efforts. Over 60% of our team said they thought we could include more sustainable practices in the workplace. We listened and now we’re taking action.
Following Green Week, we will be implementing the following features in our office:
• Improved recycle & waste bins
• E-pen trial for Surface Pros to reduce unnecessary printing
• A full-time Green team to ensure continuity of sustainable measures
• Recycling of design samples
Going forward, we intend to include Green Week (and other recognised environmental days) in our calendar annually. By tackling sustainability within our own office, we can begin to extend these efforts to our project sites where we can hope to achieve a further reduction in our carbon footprint. With the right attitude we can begin to work towards a greener, more sustainable future for all our projects.
