On yer bike!

As I’m sure you’re all aware, today is World Car-free Day!

Thanks to our commitment to the Fresh Ways to Work scheme, the vast majority of our team already travel to/from work by walking, cycling or using public transport, but we’ve made an extra effort today to try to get everyone here sustainably.

And we’d have done it too if it wasn’t for a single team member (there’s always one, isn’t there?), who had to drive. In his defence, he lives a fair old schlep from the office, but was well up for hopping on the train until he remembered an after-work appointment that would scupper his plans.

If this important rendezvous fell on any other day I’d be proudly boasting of a 100% car-free agency, but at least we have something to aspire to next year! And I don’t think one solitary driver across the whole company is a bad effort…

I’d better just check he doesn’t drive a turbo-charged Humvee!

Did you take part in World Car-free Day? Did anyone go above and beyond to avoid using their car? Let us know how you got on and we’ll share your successes with the world*.

As we finish up the last of a rather large batch of cookies we bought to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight back in March, I’m glad of the energy boost provided by their chocolatey goodness as I set about handing over my client accounts to the rest of the team. As spring finally kicks in, I thought what better…

After a recent review I’m pleased to announce that Jacob Bailey has been accredited with the BSi ISO14001 environmental management standard for another 3 years. This is great news – although we’re a low risk organisation it doesn’t stop us from striving to minimise the impacts that we do impose on our environment. We have…

2011 was a year most remembered for massive upheaval and change the world over. Revolutions and riots aside, other far-reaching shifts also occurred, including Brazil overtaking the UK as the world’s sixth largest economy. Brazil, who’d have thunk it? With what were once ‘developing’ nations now consuming, spending, producing and polluting as the West does,…

3 is the Magic Number

Veronica set off for pastures new last month and her’s were such big shoes to fill (metaphorically of course) that we had to recruit three new team members to replace her! That’s not strictly true… Account Manager Victoria (pictured, left) has actually been with us for a few months now. I know, I know, I…

Our sister company White Space won the Environment category at the Anglian Business Awards back in July, so we thought we’d follow this up by entering the Jacob Bailey Group into the East of England Business Champions 2011. The awards event took place at Tewin Bury Farm in Hertfordshire last Thursday and we had high…
