Bureau Veritas to support 'World Environment Day 2010'

Jun '10
Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS) is pleased to announce that it is supporting and participating in June 5 World Environment Day (WED). This year's WED theme is 'Many Species. One Plane. One Future.', which highlights the importance of conserving the diversity of life on our planet and the relevance of biodiversity to human well-being.

To support this good cause, Bureau Veritas is launching a company-wide campaign to encourage its worldwide employees to preserve the ecosystem by saving energy and reducing waste in their daily routine. With the full support of BVCPS global offices, a series of activities are scheduled to celebrate WED 2010.

“Light Out Event”: A company-wide light-out event will be held during lunch time at most of the Asian locations on June 4, Friday, the last working day before WED. A few locations plan to extend the light-out hours beyond the lunch hour. To facilitate internal communications, posters to promote the WED and the “Light out Event” were distributed. In addition, an email announcement was sent to internal staff to enhance their awareness of WED, and to share tips on a green daily routine.

“Tree-planting Activity”: Europe locations will pioneer a series of tree-planting activities within its regional network starting from 2010. Participating locations include Hamburg, Schwerin, Fürth and Türkheim in Germany; Paris and Lille in France; and Warrington in the United Kingdom. Local tree types will be planted to preserve the local natural biological environment from non-native plants which might invade the flora and fauna. For example, the tree variety to be planted in our Germany location will be the Prunus avium L.

“Preserve Our Wetlands Trip”: US Buffalo location has organized a field trip with its volunteer staff to a local Nature Reserve to remove invasive plant species from the protected wetlands. The BVCPS volunteer team will assist the park ecologist with a project to remove non-native plants that adversely affect the ecological balance of the habitat.

“Meat-free Day”: US Taunton location has organized a “Meat-free Day” with a non-meat luncheon to be served. The objectives for organizing the activity are to encourage employees to consider the effects of carbon emissions from food production and heighten their awareness on their “carbon footprint”. Similarly, Taiwan location will promote the “Meat-free Day”.

Other special events at individual locations around the globe include:
- Organizing a walking campaign to walk from home to office and encouraging staff to take car pool or public transportation to work on June 4.
- Inviting each staff to list three environmentally friendly practices that they are keen to support throughout this year.
- Distributing flyers that provide educational environmental information, including details on food production, plastic packaging and energy efficiencies.
- Posting a map of environmentally protected lands located in the US vicinity of Bureau Veritas.
