Through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund, Bouygues Energies & Services have been able to sponsor athlete, Ross Sinclair, to represent Team GB at the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi next month.
Ross was selected to represent GB as part of the Men’s Football Squad, following his success at national trials in February 2018. However, the GB Special Olympics Team is not government funded, so they rely heavily on fundraising and donations. Which is how Bouygues Energies & Services came to be involved!
Bouygues Energies & Services has worked with Brent Borough Council to transform their street lighting. 21,000 new LED street lights have been installed in Brent during a 12-month investment programme that was completed in January 2019.
In December last year, the UK government published their bioeconomy strategy; Growing the Bioeconomy: A national bioeconomy strategy to 2030. Echoing many of the key messages highlighted in the European Bioeconomy Strategy, the UK paper emphasised the strength of our sector both in terms of societal impact and financial value.
Why should security staff care about mental health?
At Bouygues Energies & Services we care about mental health. We have a number of trained Mental Health First Aiders across the company who can spot signs of colleagues who may be having a difficult time and offer help. In addition, the focus of our ‘Health and Safety’ week held in October was around mental health and wellbeing.
In order to give something back this festive season, Bouygues Energies & Services ran a ’12 Days of Christmas’ raising and giving campaign.
Our 12 Days of Christmas campaign was intended to have a positive impact on charities, the local community and of course, our employees and we’re delighted to say that it has been a great success!
