Foster Refrigerator has held Green Week activities as part of the ITW ‘World Green Week’ initiative.
From the 18-22 June, Foster employees undertook various activities which further enhanced its well-established commitment to environmental sustainability throughout the organisation and within the local community.
“Foster’s Commitment to sustainability is widely known throughout the refrigeration industry and within the local community”, says managing director Paul Veried.
“A successful environmental policy is about the big investments a company can make and the small steps that we can all make as individuals. Simple things like turning off lights, cycling to work or car-sharing all make a difference.”
Elsewhere, Foster also organised an art competition with Ashwicken School, which is well-known locally as an ‘eco-school’ and which undertakes a number of ‘eco’ initiatives.
These include the utilisation of solar panels, eco codes on the walls of each class and each class boasting two ‘eco champions’ that make sure everyone follows the rules for composting, recycling, energy and water conservation and litter prevention.
As part of the art competition, pupils had to draw pictures around the various environmental themes and certificates were awarded to the winners and runners-up in each category.
Ashley Sword, Sales Director at Foster, was also on hand to present each child with a pack of colouring pencils and to present the school with some vouchers for gardening equipment and six trees to create a ‘spiritual/sensory garden’ of its own design.
