  • (1888PressRelease) October 31, 2011 - The second annual Green Week planned by Dunbar McInley (October 10-15) exceeded all expectations, according to Chairman Lucas Howard, with employees uniting to make a positive impact on the environment. Dunbar McInley has offices in Seattle, London and Hong Kong and employs over 400 staff.

    Green Week took place for the first time in October 2010, and became an instant hit with employees.

    Events include the Facilities Managers challenge to reduce energy consumption in their own offices, the Thailand Cycle Challenge, where every mile cycled translated to a 1 donation for the Thailand Flood Appeal (2469 raised) and the Green Product competition, which encourages staff to suggest new ideas for sustainable products and services. Green Week has judges that work centrally to monitor and score activities and ideas.

    It's the Green Games, however, between Executives and Traders and their teams that lights up Dunbar McInley's Green Week. Staff find the best ways to reduce energy and recycle, but true to Dunbar McInley's spirit, the games bring out the best in people. Something that could be dry and corporate turns into an energetic, competitive, fun and extremely resourceful showcase to support the environment.

    Lucas Howard, Chairman, comments, "I've heard fantastic stories every day about how employees have come together to do the great and the good for our environment. Green Week is a fantastic launch pad to raise awareness of environmental issues, but if it wasn't for the inimitable spirit generated by our employees, this week wouldn't have become the great event that it is and adds, "Green Week was a bubble of an idea last year which has turned into something we have all embraced. Offices everywhere look to lead a greener life. What we didn't expect, but appreciate immensely, is how it has brought people together. To see something like Green Week uniting teams, creating great spirit, generating new innovations and building on our employees' competitive, clever and resourceful skills is just fantastic".
