Grasshopper Energy Celebrates World Environment Day

06/05/2013

Today is the World Environment Day, one of the main vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action. World Environment Day celebration activities take place around the world all year round and climax on June 5th of every year. Grasshopper Energy has participated in celebrating it from re-addressing sustainable office practices. As a proud renewable energy company, the Grasshopper Team has been already taking actions to reduce our carbon footprint such as recycling, collecting food waste separately, carpooling, trying to avoid unnecessary printing, using washable kitchenware and eco-friendly cleaning products, etc. In celebrating the World Environment Day, the Grasshopper Team took further actions to make our office greener from re-addressing ten action items.

Internal audits have taken place in order to monitor the progress and encourage more employee participation. The employee participation level has been continuously increased and the ten action items have been successfully implemented. The Grasshopper Team will continue to re-address the 10 action items and participate in raising awareness of the environmental issues.
