Avanta takes a Step in the Green Direction
Serviced office provider Avanta has launched an environmental campaign to encourage clients at its UK business centres to save energy, resources, and to help reduce waste.
Avanta’s marketing team has created a series of posters explaining simple energy-saving methods to help encourage business centre clients to reduce their carbon impact. These include saving paper by reducing the amount of documents sent to print, using mugs instead of plastic cups, and always turning off lights and electrical equipment at the end of the day.
The poster campaign has been created with the help of information from Recycling Lives, a charity that offers support to adults that are homeless or facing the possibility of homelessness. The charity relies on financial donations as well as items that are donated to their centres, ranging from sports equipment to bedding.
Managing Director of Avanta, David Alberto, commented that the campaign “reflects Avanta’s ongoing commitment to corporate social responsibility”.
He added: “This marks a positive step towards environmental awareness demonstrating best practice amongst serviced office providers, and addressing the government’s recently introduced Carbon Reduction Commitment.
“There’s a growing trend for businesses of all sizes wanting to work with environmentally-friendly organisations, and so our poster campaign will help to reinforce key green messages in the minds of every client working in our centres and help them to reach their own carbon reduction goals.”
Other environmental measures include the installation of new larger bicycle racks and storage lockers at its Hammersmith business centre, to encourage more clients to cycle to work.
