This committee is made up of individuals who feel passionately about working within and promoting the issues of sustainability in the environment. New recycling or reduction schemes are communicated and promoted internally at monthly or six-monthly all staff meetings through bespoke humorous videos. Gensler’s Community Outreach programme is driven entirely on the interests and entrepreneurship of all those involved. Through a volunteered Community Outreach Committee, their support of local charitable organisations is organised and implemented. The Community Outreach programme incorporates staff from all disciplines and levels working together on a diverse range of projects that have a long lasting positive impact on the charities they support. To demonstrate their commitment to effectively manage projects, sustain and protect the environment, they identify and evaluate the environmental aspects of all projects undertaken, setting measurable and realistic environmental objectives and targets to improve the environmental performance across the business. They also source environmentally sustainable materials, reduce their waste and consumption of energy and maximise opportunities to re-use and recycle where possible.
