Airswift's annual global volunteer event centred around Earth Day promoting and supporting our commitment to sustainability
Every year, our global offices come together to take action in their local community and raise awareness as part of Airswift's commitment to Sustainability.
Held in the middle of April, Airswift Earth Week is a week-long global event centred around Earth Day that aims to promote and support our commitment to sustainability.
Airswift's Earth Week is driven by four main goals:
EDUCATE ourselves and our communities about local environmental issues and how climate change will impact their region, the country, and the world.
PROMOTE values and behaviours that address environmental degradation and climate change in an inclusive and participatory setting.
EMPOWER ourselves and our communities with the skills necessary to take action to help fight climate change.
MAINTAIN new habits and remember that even the smallest actions can have a major impact.
Each Earth Week, we at Airswift pledge a 'donation' of hours from our global working week towards volunteering and education.
These hours are accrued by taking part in global events such as our sustainability trivia competition or company-wide 'Power Hour', during which all members of the Airswift team are encouraged to switch off all unnecessary electronics for an hour of their workday.
Our teams also participate in regional events, including Meatless Monday cook-offs, sustainability seminars run by our passionate team members and community volunteer events.
Sustainability is an increasingly frequent theme in society and goes far beyond a concept. Airswift has always evolved with the energy industry. We aim to continue this evolution as sustainability becomes more important to the planet and the future of energy. We at Airswift are constantly striving to reduce our environmental impact.
Together we can restore the earth for future generations.
EDUCATE. PROMOTE. EMPOWER. MAINTAIN.
Earth Week 2021 - Restore the Earth
For our inaugural Airswift Earth Week, we pledged to contribute 600 hours globally towards educating and empowering ourselves and our local communities, promoting sustainable behaviours, and maintaining our new green habits.
Despite varying Covid-19 restrictions across the globe, our teams went above and beyond to show their commitment to sustainability.
Events included: recycling drives, a global Power Hour, meatless meal challenges, sustainability seminars, clothing swaps, tree-planting, littler picks, car-less commutes, nature walks, guerilla gardening and global trivia to name but a few.
Not only did we meet our target of 600 hours, but we more thandoubled it, donating an amazing total of 1700 hours from our working week.
‘All of us at Airswift are very proud to participate in our inaugural Earth Week campaign. It is inspiring to see our global teams come together and pledge 600 hours of our working week to sustainable causes and localized social initiatives. We believe in thinking big, acting now and making our contribution where we can.'
Albert Kahlow, Global Head of Sustainability
