At nVent, being a good steward of the environment is integral to how we operate. Working to improve our environmental impact through responsible energy, waste and water management is a priority at all levels of our organization—from setting strategic business goals to our Grass Roots Employee Resource Group (ERG) focused on environmental sustainability.
This year, Grass Roots is focusing on creating awareness around and reduction in the use of single-use plastics. All nVent employees can participate both at home and at work in a variety of action categories: Home, Food, On-the-Go, Personal Care, Community, Kids and Pets. Each category has a variety of actions associated with it at varying challenge levels. Participants can earn points for each action they complete, and the top ten employees at the end of 2022 will earn prizes like reusable totes and produce bags.
“It’s exciting to see nVent employees come together behind our mission of adopting more sustainable practices, both at work and at home,” said Erica I., Grass Roots ERG leader. “As we raise awareness and learn to see the volume of single-use plastic waste in our everyday lives, we are at the same time building a sense of community that celebrates and shares creative ways to reduce our overall footprint.”
In honor of Earth Day, Grass Roots is also encouraging all employees to participate in a community cleanup sometime during the months of April and May. Some nVent employees will be participating in cleanups at their local nVent location while others will be participating in their local communities with family and friends.
