MID Comms is on a green mission
In our previous blog, we introduced our early work and activity surrounding all things environmental, looking at some of the reasons we’ve decided to increase our focus here as well as give an understanding of our initial actions as we embark on our green mission.
Over the subsequent three months we’ve really had a great opportunity to explore and evolve our thinking and activity levels.
What we can cover in more detail now are:
- Our targets and aspirations in more detail
- Some of our early findings and results
- Review some of our partners and support we’ve received from external bodies
No attempt to reduce our environmental impact can be completed without at least understanding the starting point! It sounds obvious but gathering our data and establishing our base point was one of the trickier challenges we initially faced. As we operate across 17 sites and had no regular or organised means of collating for instance our electrical usage, this proved to be an early challenge.
We overcame this by engaging our managers through our regular communications channels and directing them on how to firstly read the data and then secondly how to report it back in an accurate and timely manner. We decided that monthly reading would be sufficient for our needs and have been successfully capturing this data since the turn of the year.
