Dynamic Earth is proud to be supported by the Green Tourism Business Scheme and we currently hold a Gold Award which is currently the highest achievement and is considered outstanding and inspirational.
Our staff and Green Team Champions work continually to maintain this standard; the Green Team are made-up of volunteers from each department who drive our environmental efforts by continually finding ways of reducing energy, waste and spend, work closely with our Operation and Maintenance Teams and respond to external environmental requirements and any Government led targets.
The Scottish Government has set targets for waste to be divided into the following percentages:70% recycled, 25% to fuel conversion and 5% to land fill. In order to support this Dynamic Earth has teamed up with Changeworks Ltd to help match these targets as quickly as possible. Information from the committee is shared across the company via email and posters in the staff canteen; you can also speak to a member of the committee for more information.
Current projects include:
- Monitoring of reports to see how much waste is going to land fill and how much we are sending for recycling, allowing us to make improvements where needed.
- Teaming up with Zero Waste Scotland to be involved in their “Recycle on The Go” scheme, helping the public to recycle their waste when out and about.
- Hosting a range of recycle collection bins throughout the building to help our visitors avoid sending recyclable material to land fill sites.
- Monitoring our energy consumption
- Reducing our use of plastic
We would love to know your thoughts on recycling and the environment. Please take our Green Survey, it will only take a few minutes and may help our Green Team with ideas for the future, take survey.
