Our 2016 Environment Week

tRIIO’s second Environment Week will be held over the week of 25 – 29 July with Dan Fitzpatrick, tRIIO environmental advisor and Paddy Newton, group environmental manager for Morrison Utility Services, talking about a range of topics, how changing our behaviour can help reduce carbon emissions and the effect they have on the atmosphere.  There will be three videos and two infographics which will give you some quick ways to save money and help the environment both at work and at home.

The topics will be:

  • Monday – Working near water
  • Tuesday – How you can help, at home
  • Wednesday – Carbon
  • Thursday – How you can help, at work
  • Friday – Waste

Some of the topics have additional information available as well as the daily activities, so do look out for the links – all the messages are important.

Enjoy the week!

Our 2015 Environment Week

Welcome to tRIIO’s first ever Environment Week. Running from Monday 16 to Friday 20 November, this is a five-day campaign focusing on how we impact the environment as a project and raising awareness on how we can better control our environmental influence. Each day we will publish a brief video introducing the topic-of-the-day, which we hope will get you all thinking.

There will also be other activities running parallel to the videos throughout the week – you’re all invited to take part. A quiz on the environment is available with prizes going to those with the top five highest scores – winners will be announced by 27 November so you have plenty of time to mull over the questions.

You can also book a test drive in various electric, hybrid and eco cars which will be available at each depot throughout the week – open to all tRIIO colleagues. Check here for booking contacts and remember to have your driver’s licence with you when booking.

The subjects discussed during the week will be:

  • Monday – Carbon
  • Tuesday – Ecology
  • Wednesday – Aggregates and waste
  • Thursday – Pipe and fittings
  • Friday – Energy saving in the office

Some of the topics have additional information available as well as the daily videos, so do look out for the links – all the messages are important.

Enjoy the week!
