Stride Treglown recognised and rewarded for their Green efforts
During Bristol’s year as European Green Capital they organised a programme of internal events each month exploring a sustainable theme, lead by a different in-house team each time.
Examples of this included ‘Sustainable Me’, in which there was an inter-team 5k run across the Clifton Downs, and ‘Sustainable Working’ where creative workplaces and alternative ways of working were discussed.
In March they implemented a staff car-sharing commuting scheme which has been widely adopted across the company.
In June Stride Treglown became the first organisation to achieve the top award of Excellence in all 8 standards of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter. During this month they also had an action-packed ‘Business Green Week’ which included a commuting race, and they helped other organisations run their own weeks.
And finally December saw the 1st birthday of their office electric car – also known as ‘Zoe’.
Over the course of the last year they have established our ‘baseline’ energy usage and carbon footprint from scope 1 and 2 emissions. Their target for next year is to decrease energy consumption and emissions.
