Think Green

Internal staff campaigns

Think Green are promoting internal campaigns to help improve Energy Efficiency, reduce Carbon Emissions, and to make the Council a Greener place to work.

Internal campaigns are a great way of engaging staff with environmental issues.

We hope to use these in conjunction with more national campaigns, and to embed a greener attitude across the council estate.

Please do what you can to reduce your impact upon the environment.  Taking part in local or national campaigns is a good start!

Current internal campaigns

  • Last Out, Lights Out (Ongoing)

Throughout the year we want staff to take simple steps at work to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.

This campaign is simple.  If you are the last to leave, switch off any lights, electrical appliances, computer screens or chargers.  We hope to align this campaign with WWF's Earth Hour in the month of March each year.

  • The Big Holiday Switch Off (Ongoing)

During all holiday periods throughout the year  there may be buildings that are consuming energy when they shouldn't.

This campaign encourages staff to make their building more energy efficient.  It is also a way of trying to encourage staff to influence others in their department to follow a greener attitude to work and home life.

  • Get Fit for the New Year (December 2015 - March 2016)

We are all aware that during the cold winter months - particularly the Christmas and New Year holidays - we may do less exercise and overindulge on festivities!

This campaign promotes the many exercise and outdoor opportunities available locally, while also encouraging people to take up the activities.

Exercise forms an important part of leading a more sustainable lifestyle, and walking and cycling are great ways to improve or maintain fitness!
