Auto Windscreens held its fourth litter pick of 2023 in honor of World Environment Day, Monday, June 5, as part of its “cleaner community” initiative.
A team of seven volunteers, led by business support director Shaun Atton, cleared the area of plastic and rubbish around McGregor’s Pond, located near the company’s head office in Chesterfield. It marked the fourth pick of the year, and follows similar endeavors at Rother Valley Washlands at Hasland, Chesterfield Canal and around the service center in Marnin Way in Edinburgh.
In total, teams have collected 29 bags of rubbish and covered 13.5 miles in 2023. The company has also set a goal of being net zero by 2045, and has since introduced recycling stations at all offices and service centers in the UK.
“We focus on three core pillars to continually improve; these are customers, sustainability and our people, and we take our responsibilities extremely seriously,” Atton says. “We have 72 sites around the UK and our teams are committed to supporting the communities and environment in which we live, work and conduct business. We must all do what we can to help beat climate change, not just on World Environment Day, but every day.”
