Subfero wins Green Can Award
Outsourced customer support specialist, Subfero, has been presented with an Every Can Counts Green Can Award. The Green Can Award scheme recognises businesses who have gone above and beyond to improve drink can recycling infrastructure and increase organisational engagement rates.
The judges were impressed with Subfero’s sustainability initiative, which included the appointment of two recycling champions, implementation of beverage can collection points around the office and coordination of a fun recycling-themed event for staff members.
Megan Goswell, head of people at Subfero, said: “We are extremely proud to be presented with a Green Can Award for our recycling efforts. At Subfero, we are passionate about reducing our environmental footprint and always look for new and engaging ways to do this. To help increase beverage can recycling rates in the office, we knew we needed to do something a little different. Our special staff event blended fun activities with serious recycling messaging to help raise awareness of the benefits of recycling among the team.”
Chris Latham-Warde, programme manager at Every Can Counts UK, said: “We’ve been really impressed by Subfero’s recycling programme along with their creative approach to engaging employees and are pleased to be recognising their efforts with this award. Research conducted by Every Can Counts last year found that only 43% of Brits often or always recycle when at work, so we hope Subfero’s activities will inspire others to promote recycling in the workplace too – while having some fun at the same time!”
