Small Lifestyle Changes for the Planet
Every small thing we do, from the food we eat, our choice to drive a car, our habits related to waste-all these seemingly mundane daily life choices have an impact on our environment.
Realizing the potentially huge impact of transforming the daily habits of our employees, one small doable change at a time, UnionBank took on the Aboitiz Group's No Impact Challenge.
This inventive program, adapted from the global No Impact movement, finds strength in numbers by encouraging all our employees to make better lifestyle choices in a race or contest set-up.
Our employees have formed teams of 10 or more to pursue four weeks of carbon-cleansing activities.
While these are as simple as going for a 20-minute walk, having a vegan meal, or avoiding carbonated drinks, they result in significant carbon reductions when rolled out across the entire Aboitiz Group.
As of the end of 2017, Aboitiz employees have come together for a combined 206 metric tons of CO2 emissions reduced in just 2 weeks.
For its part, UnionBankers contribute for the reduction of 66 metric tons of CO2 emissions. Imagine what we can accomplish if we fully imbibe a healthier and more sustainable life?
This is not only good for the planet, it is also good for our own wellbeing and personal health.
