This week Cedar staff have been taking part in The Great Big Green Week. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Team organised a number of events that encouraged people come together to unleash a wave of support for action to protect the planet. We were delighted that so many decided stand up for nature and fight climate change.

Events included:

Let’s Swap Together For Good: Staff swapped clothes, plants and skills during the week.

The Walk/Wheel Swap Interdepartmental Challenge: People walked/cycled to work/ meetings. Walked over lunch breaks or after work to get out into the environment/nature with your colleagues and friends.

Youth Matters Horticulture Project: as part of their Duke of Edinburgh, Youth matters tidied up the garden areas at Ravenhill Reach, planting new bedding plants and sensory perennials for everyone to enjoy when they visit.

During the Sustainability Trail at Castle Espie staff took a walk around the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust’s Castle Espie site, outside Comber to learn a little about what they have done there to be more sustainable.  

Finally, today we are taking part in at Beach Clean at Crawfords Country Park! The emphasis is on using public transport including the train to reach the beach and show the local area some care and attention.

We recognise our local work is linked to a global effort and we have adapted our social responsibility strategy to focus on people, planet, place. The efforts made through this particular campaign have centred around these aspects and we are proud to continue our commitment to improving and protecting natural environments in the local community with an awareness that every action contributes to a wider impact.
