From lights down to warm clothing
Growing vegetables thanks to huge windows
For GreenDay 2015, ebm-papst Japan has decided to continue all the events and campaigns which have already been implemented throughout the past years.
The colleagues in Sales keep realizing customer projects with GreenTech products and push for EC technology being used more widely. All energy-saving measures in place are also set to continue. One such measure is reducing energy consumption by switching off the lights during their lunch break. Other campaigns, such as “Eco caps” and “Used stamps” will also continue to be promoted.
However, there is also a new campaign, started at the end of 2014: ebm-papst is an active part of “Fun to share”, an internet platform of the Ministry of the Environment in Japan. On this platform, campaigns focusing on energy-saving and sustainability are shared and promoted. Our colleagues from ebm-papst Japan are listed for these campaigns:
Information about the „Light Down“ campaign on the Japanese Website Fun to Share.
a) “Light down”, 22 June 2015, from 20:00-22:00
b) “Cool earth day light down”, 7 July 2015, from 20:00 to 22:00
c) “Super cool biz”: Office air-conditioning temperature is set to 27 or 28°C. From 1 June to 30 September 2015, light and cool clothing is worn.
d) “Super warm biz”: Office air-conditioning temperature is set to 20°C. From 1 December 2015 to 31 March 2016, warm clothing is worn.
e) “Smart move”: People are encouraged to use public transport, walk or ride their bikes
As if this was not enough, our colleagues at ebm-papst Japan had another bright idea: As their offices have really large windows, letting in lots of sunlight, they are going to try and grow their own vegetables there. These will then be donated to a shelter for homeless people in Yokohama.
