The TUC is working with the ETUC to set up a European Green Workplaces Network. We have a year's funding from the European Commission to set up the network, undertake some activities at workplace level and produce a new green reps handbook.
DIARY DATE: TUC National Green Reps Conference, Congress House, 2 July 2012 10.30 to 16.30. Further details will be available in early April.
The TUC's Greenworkplace projects are dealing with a whole range of issues at work, from energy saving and recycling g initiatives to green travel plans and in the strongest cases, setting up new joint environmental committees with management. This is also true of many other trade unions across the EU - as we are finding out as the project develops.
These projects have a huge amount to offer in saving energy and resources, a top priority for the European Commission in 2012.
This first Briefing describes the key aims of the project. Further Briefings will be published on progress on the various fronts - the handbook, new green workplace projects, and the big national Green Reps Conference at the TUC on 2 July.
