RKEO have spent the last year greening up the office and doing our bit for the environment and the well-being of the RKEO team. We submitted to the NUS Green Impact Award in February and we are proud to announce that we achieved the Silver award status, which is excellent as this was our first ever entry.
We have achieved a lot in the last year, which includes reducing our printing by 24.3% (we’re aiming for 50% in two years) and we have saved BU 34% on printing costs by significantly reducing our colour printing; we’ve recycled and reused practically everything we could have; we’ve introduced a switch-off campaign; various lunch clubs involve walking, quizzing, spinning and craft; we contributed to Fair Trade Fortnight; we’ve reduced car usage when travelling to work; everyone has a plant on their desk; and much, much more.
Our greening initiative was called GHEFRRE (Green, Healthy, Ethical, Fair, Recycle, Reuse, Environmental) and an endangered finger monkey was our mascot. Congratulations to the whole team!
