Today is special day in the offices and hallways of Fortress GJ as on World Environment Day we release our “Girling Jones SuperGreen” strategy out into the world.
Two months ago, inspired by the wonderful work of Greta Thunberg we asked ourselves not only how can we “Go Green” but what is the best we can do. What is the biggest impact we can make and what does excellence in this area look like?
How can we be SUPERGREEN.
We needed some help so we reached out to the experts, Tim Bouget – owner of ODE True Food Sustainable Restaurant of the Year 2018 and Zac Goodall – Surfing Legend and Freelance Sustainability Consultant. True Eco Warriors at the very top of their game.
Armed with their advice and with bucket loads of enthusiasm we have designed a Environmental Policy aimed at becoming the UK’s first Carbon Negative/Climate Positive Recruitment agency
To achieve this goal we have implemented four core principles:
- Changing our supply chain to 100% green and/or carbon neutral
- Reducing or removing our use of all consumables
- Spreading the word to our employees, client and candidates
- Offsetting double our carbon emissions each year via Mossy Earth
Our “Green Team” has been busy implementing all of these in time for today’s launch and over the next 6 months you will see the launch of all our new Green initiatives.
Going through this process has been an eye opener. We were surprised as a small business actually how much is achievable and we’d love to pass on the knowledge and tips we’ve learned along the way so please do get in touch if you’d like to know more.
Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 5th June, and we will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the 5th June will no longer be known as an “World Environment Day”, but as the day the world declared in one voice:
We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate “Girling Jones Super Green Day!” – (President Thomas J. Whitmore)
