CSC goes organic

31 Aug 2010

Docklands-based international information technology services provider CSC hosted an organic gardening expo for its employees at its Docklands Drive office on Friday, August 27.

The gardening expo was held to expose CSC employees to some gardening concepts that would help them grow their own fruit and vegetables organically in any space.

The event was held as part of CSC’s GreenWay program which was launched in December 2007 to ensure that the environmental impacts of the company were periodically assessed, with sustainability goals set and priorities met.

Environmental Sustainability Lead at CSC, Anthony Ogilvie, said CSC recognised that issues relating to the environment and sustainability were not just a concern of a single department at CSC.

“We believe that individuals throughout our business must be encouraged to take responsibility. To that end, GreenWay has launched a number of initiatives to raise the level of environmental and sustainability awareness amongst staff. The Organic Gardening Expo is one example of this.”

Demonstrations on a range of gardening topics included owning chickens and building a garden in as little space as a window panel, were held by representatives from organic and permaculture groups as well as CSC staff members.

The expo was the result of a survey sent out to staff at the end of 2009, which showed that growing their own fruit and vegetables was an area of sustainability that was of interest to them.

CSC is a global business solutions and technology services provider that employs 92,000 people globally and has its Australian headquarters in Sydney.
