Paper and water
Against water shortage
During the GreenDay week, ebm-papst Brazil has planned three campaigns for their staff.
On 1 June, there will be a fitness workout and a “healthy” coffee break to demonstrate how important it is for your general wellbeing to do some sports and to have a well-balanced diet.
Tips for saving water
On top of this, the ebm-papst trainees will give a presentation on the present shortage of water in Brazil. Background: The country is currently faced with the most dramatic water crisis in history. The drastic consequences of the crisis affect about 77 million people, especially those in the two metropolises Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo – which is where our subsidiary ebm-papst Brazil is located. The water shortage has many different reasons: excessive use, leaky lines, increased rainforest clearance, and climate changes such as absence of rain. Therefore, our colleagues living in the biggest country in South America want to highlight this acute problem and give tips on how to save water.
Mucking out desks
The next day, 2 June 2015, is totally dedicated to paper. Again, the trainees will demonstrate how much paper is being used in the office and how this amount may be reduced and how paper may be recycled optimally. The following day, 3 June 2015, every single member of staff is expected to put into practice what they learnt and to go clear their desks of all sheets of paper, magazines and other documents for recycling.
And the entire year is also dedicated to green topics: There will be a number of presentations and seminars on “GreenTech EC Technology”.
