Policy Press’ ‘Green Team’ are thrilled to have received the Gold Award at Bristol University’s 2014 Green Impact Award ceremony earlier this month.

In addition to bagging a gold for their efforts to reduce energy use, increase recycling and improve the working environment, the team were presented with an extra ‘Special Achievement’ award for their ‘Lunch Bunch’ initiative.

Green Team representative Ruth Harrison said: “One of the most enjoyable parts of working towards the Green Impact award has been the team’s decision to hold a ‘Lunch Bunch’ once a month.”

“Everyone in Policy Press is invited to bring along a healthy, and usually home-made dish, as part of a lunch time ‘bring and share’. It’s a fun way to make sure that everyone gets some time away from their desks. We get to catch up, share recipes AND promote healthy eating!”

The team were delighted to receive a hamper of tasty treats as their reward for the ‘Lunch Bunch’ initiative.

Policy Press Director Alison Shaw joined the Green team members at the ceremony. She said: “I am delighted with the efforts of the team and think it’s made a really positive impact on the office overall.”

Socially responsible

“Policy Press are a socially responsible organisation and have been ‘Green’ since our inception. Being part of Green Impact fits quite naturally with the company ethos.”

As a non-profit social science publisher, Policy Press is always looking for ways to make a positive impact. Founded at the University of Bristol in 2006, Green Impact is now a UK-wide environmental accreditation scheme. It is designed to help organisations think about the impact they have on the environment, and how this can be reduced.
