2013-06-04

Singapore, 5 June 2013 – This is the 7th year running for Eco Action Day - an annual green campaign calling for organizations to go green and take action in office, in conjunction with World Environment Day.

 
“Act now while it’s still evergreen”; a new designed website for the campaign, comes with a new concept. Unlike the previous years, the call action has extended from its usual one day affair on 5th June to going green in office in the month of June. Registration is opened till end of June. Organizations can play their part to counter climate change through their effort by pledging and act on its green actions in office.

Ms. Masayo Hada, Manager of Regional Environment Management Group in Ricoh Asia Pacific Pte Ltd said, “Eco Action Day is the direction set by Ricoh Group in Japan in 2006. The idea of carrying the green message across Singapore is from the collective effort point of view and that is to gather various organizations to think and act eco on 5th June and hoping that organizations will continue its green pledged actions from then onwards.”
 
To promote eco consciousness among the working employees, an individual quest has been created through a series of green office actions to be practiced daily. Through these simple actions, the quest aim to cultivate green habits among individuals.
