Travelers Management Ltd - Small Site, Chairman's Cup Winners 2018

Travelers had a challenging but successful year in 2018 with downsizing and relocating to a new office whilst minimising the environmental impact of their move.

Before the move, “Clean Green Friday’s” were arranged helping staff increase recycling, posters were prepared to explain the recycling streams and colour coded bag system in the building. Office furniture was reused in the new office, claimed by staff or donated to charity. Leaflets were given to cleaning staff in the new office to help maximise recycling and to ensure efficient recycling.
