Madrid, 5th June 2018. Clece is supporting World Environment Day through different awareness raising and conservation initiatives involving employees, clients, and those who use its services.
As one of the initiatives promoted by the organisation, an activity will take place throughout the 5th called “Alimentos Ecologicos: Buenos para la Naturaleza, buenos para ti” [Organic Foods: Good for Nature, Good for You]. This is an information exercise on the benefits of organic foods. It is aligned with food safety and nutrition objectives based on three principles: secure, healthy and sustainable catering. More than 1,200 people will take part in the training sessions during which the company will also deliver 700 kilos of ecological fruit.
Clece has also commenced the first edition of an environment competition for employees. The aim is to raise awareness about the importance of reducing environmental consumption, such as paper or electricity and to mitigate the potential impact of both and dangerous and non-dangerous residues on the environment.
In the first phase, 50 innovative projects have been submitted. These are aimed at sustainable mobility, the reduction of paper consumption through the digitalization of documents, reduction of chemical products, and environmental education in nursery schools for children aged between 0 and 3 years.
Ecological cleaning products
From 4th to 9th June, 156 centres where Clece provides cleaning services will commemorate the day by replacing chemical cleaning products with those that are ecological and more environmentally friendly. Cleaning centres, nursery schools and care homes for the elderly have joined in the action. It is envisaged that more than 10,000 litres of chemical cleaning products will be replaced by ecological ones.
Other activities involving service users and clients will take place at different points where Clece provides its services. At Murcia University and in various hospitals throughout the Valencian Autonomous Community, Clece will give a plant to everyone who records their commitment to the environment in a special book provided for the purpose. As a symbolic act, a tree will be planted at the La Fe Hospital in Valencia. The Elda Hospital in Alicante will see the inauguration of a kitchen garden for psychiatric patients, a project in which Clece has collaborated.
The collection of old mobiles for charity purposes, the substitution of plastic containers with glass ones; book exchanges; handicrafts in nursery schools, and seed exchanges are just some of the activities that will mark Clece’s celebration of Environment Day.
