JPCS supports Climate Week

National civil engineering contractor JPCS is making a real difference this week, by supporting Britain’s Biggest Climate Change Campaign – Climate Week.

Running from 12 to 18 March 2012, Climate Week is a supercharged national campaign to inspire a new wave of action on climate change. It culminates in thousands of events and activities, planned by organisations from every part of society. Showcasing real, practical ways to combat climate change, the campaign aims to renew our ambition to create a more sustainable, low-carbon future.

JPCS has registered an internal lean programme, WasteWise, in support of Climate Week. Largely based upon employee consultation and contribution, the programme aims to achieve cost and waste reductions of up to 80 per cent. Some suggestions already received include wider recycling initiatives, and a fuel reduction plan which has now been launched and includes measures such as setting emissions caps on company cars by grade.

During Climate Week, JPCS will be asking employees for an extra effort in submitting suggestions to keep up the momentum of the programme, and to make a real contribution to reducing carbon emissions.

Climate Week is backed by every part of society – from the Prime Minister to Paul McCartney, the NHS to the Met Office, the TUC to the CBI, Girlguiding UK to the National Association of Head Teachers. During the first Climate Week in 2011 over 3,000 events were attended by half a million people across the UK.
