Our colleagues across the world volunteer throughout the year in a variety of ways to help their local communities. And many take this opportunity to participate in activities which will have a positive impact on our planet.
World Environment Day is held on June 5th each year. It aims to encourage all of us to take collective action on a global scale to protect and restore our planet. SThree colleagues in the Netherlands took this opportunity to take part in two separate activities which were organised by our ESG ambassadors.
We teamed up with Plastic Whale – a social enterprise that is the first professional plastic fishing company. The group don’t stop there though, as they also create furniture and boats out of the plastic waste they remove from the water.
We had a team of 70 people split across seven boats who helped to fish out plastic from Amsterdam’s canals. The outcome was impressive, as they collected more than 100 plastic bottles, 14 bags of other plastics, 20 glass items, and 11 bags full of other rubbish. The event also served as a kick-off day for 22 new starters who recently joined SThree.
