This Spring JSM took part in the Great British Spring Clean in an effort to help clean up the local communities of Potters Bar and Barking.
Over two days in April a group of staff members rolled up their sleeves and armed themselves with litter pickers and rubbish bags to tackle the local green spaces of Barking Park and King George V Recreation Ground that often get abused and become litter-filled when the weather starts to warm up.
Hazim Bidiwi JSM’s Environmental Advisor says ‘this project was dear to the SHEQ team because it shows the responsibility we are taking for the environment. Also it contributed to our yearly environmental, sustainability and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) objectives.’
The Great British Spring Clean Campaign was put together by the ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ charity and ran from 22 March – 23 April in partnership with community organisations, businesses and the government. This year has proven to be the biggest Spring Clean yet with a total of 4,308 tonnes of rubbish collected nationwide
JSM took on this project as part of their commitment to helping the environment and giving back to the local communities JSM are based in.
Thank you to everyone who took part, especially the SHEQ department who rallied together to help JSM make a difference.
