This year at Ausenco we celebrated Environment Week from 4-8 June, coinciding with the UN World Environment Day on 5 June and World Oceans Day on 8 June. In line with the UN, our 2018 theme was Beat Plastic Pollution (#Beatplasticpollution).
Throughout the week we challenged our people at every office and project site to participate in a variety of fun and educational activities; from trialling the removal of single-use plastics from our offices, to handing out reusable bags and coffee mugs, as well as a variety of clean-up and “lunch and learn” events. Ausenco’s people embraced the cause and played their parts individually and collectively to make a positive impact.
“It is fantastic to see the energy that the Ausenco people have when it comes to caring for and respecting the Environment,” said Neil Trembath, Chief People & Technology Officer. “We are now challenging everyone to make changes in their everyday lives that will make a long term positive difference to our communities and environment.”
