Promoting ‘Eco-Mindfulness’ #JJConnect2Earth

Jebsen & Jessen Group dedicated the month of June to fostering greener habits among colleagues

In conjunction with World Environmental Day on 5 June, the Group dedicated the entire month to encouraging colleagues to ‘go green’ with fun and creative activities.

For decades, we have championed sustainability in Jebsen & Jessen Group, for example by switching to biomass boilers to reduce carbon emissions, or building partnerships that aim to take sustainability a step further. As such, it’s time for individual employees to walk the talk further.

Under the themes #JJConnect2Earth and #OnlyOneEarth, our Countries' Health & Wellness Committees conjured up various environmental activities: 

MALAYSIA 

In Malaysia, this took the form of a bingo contest, with green actions earning colleagues one square and bringing them closer to a prize.

INDONESIA

Colleagues were given the freedom to build an environmental project based on the 5Rs (Reduce, Recycle, Reuse, Repair and Reject) in teams of seven or more. From recycling used paper into brand new paper to creating pots from recyclable items, our colleagues came up with a range of unique ideas.

One team created a beautiful tissue box and stationary container out of used carboard.

Meanwhile, in Singapore, the local teams focused on e-waste disposal and recycling. An education session was organised in partnership with ALBA E-Waste and dedicated e- waste recycling bins were set up at the Corporation Place and Enterprise Road offices.

VIETNAM

Turning to social media, colleagues were asked to post photos of their activities to JJ Viet Nam's Facebook page where they would be scored on the number of likes, shares and comments. A quiz was also organised to test colleagues’ knowledge on the environment led by Ms Tuong Vy Nguyen who holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies.

THAILAND

Our offices in Thailand were transformed into a green wonderland as colleagues were encouraged to bring a plant to office and record its growth. See the winning plant below:

PHILIPPINES

Trying to bring eco-awareness forward in simple ways, colleagues were called to share how they support the 5Rs via a 'padlet' link or social media. The idea was not only to cultivate green habits among colleagues, but for them to share the importance of taking care of the environment with those around them.

MYANMAR

In Myanmar, colleagues were introduced to the the 5Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Reject through an informative talk session made more engaging through games.
