The Union Advent: 16 Dec
In 2006-07, the TUC’s ‘Green Workplaces’ project supported trade union initiatives to make six demonstration workplaces ‘greener’. These were at the steelmakers Corus, Friends Provident, DEFRA (the Government’s environment department), Scottish Power, the British Museum and the TUC. The project focused on energy saving and was funded by the Carbon Trust.
Funded by the Union Modernisation Fund, The TUC is currently supporting a number of “transformational” projects with unions to develop Green Workplace projects in specific workplaces where they are recognised.
