EDF Energy EcoTeams-up!

EcoTeams are great at getting people together at home, but EDF Energy proves that getting together at work can be just as motivating.

As part of our ongoing charity partnership, employees of EDF Energy have jumped at the chance to form local EcoTeams to help their communities become more sustainable.

Held at London’s Westminster Kingsway College, our second EcoTeam-Up event welcomed staff from EDF Energy from across southeast England for a dedicated afternoon session.

What EcoTeamers say

Lucie Kelton, 22, from North Lancing, is a customer service adviser at EDF Energy’s Worthing office. She said:

"I signed up because I want to learn more about being economical and help others learn too. If I build my knowledge then I can help other people who want to be greener."

Joy Astill, sustainability manager at the company's Hove office, said: “I decided to take up the training to learn more about EcoTeams and how we can all save money and reduce CO2 emissions, even when you think you are doing everything you possibly can.”

Eric Mitchell, 26 is an EDF Energy Sustainability and schools programme ambassador at the company’s Worthing office. He said:

"By taking part in EcoTeams I hope to gain a better understanding of the things I can do, not only at home but at work, in becoming more sustainable and supporting others to become more sustainable themselves."

London EcoTeam-Up

The evening gathering – held for the anybody who wanted to come – welcomed an eager audience as we presented them with our new "How green is your action?" game.

Alongside our new format games, plenty of conversations were had with people sharing ideas and actions - the stuff of EcoTeams!
