The FSC Australia team held our own FSC Friday event this year!
It was a great opportunity to meet Natalie Reynolds our CEO and Daniel Mackey, Deputy CEO – Policy, along with the rest of the team.
It was also a great chance for the public to see the hard work that went into creating the #FSCAhouse, our edgy new chamber based mural on the garage door and the FSC Certified products from our members and retail supporters on display in our reception area.
As FSC Friday was held the day before the AFL grand final here in Melbourne, we decided to keep in line with the culture and dress in our team colours.
Tetra Pak held a global employee engagement campaign on their Intranet to raise awareness and engagement around the value of FSC.
The campaign was web based and included basic information about FSC and how/why Tetra Pak works with FSC. To increase engagement they also had a more “fun part” – a memory game around Tetra Pak and FSC.
When you click on the FSC Logo an image appears and you need to use your memory to find it’s match behind other logos.The 100 fastest players of the Tetra Pak FSC memory win an USB flash drive made from FSC certified wood.
The Framing Success FSC Friday event was held at their company headquarters. Employees dressed in green and brown and a contest was held for the “best forest-friendly” costume. Theme cupcakes and FSC flyers were made available. Framing Success holds an FSC-COC certificate for their hardwood mouldings and offers the fully-FSC certified “Bamboo” diploma frame made with FSC certified conservation matting.
Hally Labels promoted their FSC Friday event it in both their Christchurch and Auckland Manufacturing sites.
They encouraged staff to wear green, had a green themed morning tea (kiwifruit, grapes, apples pears and non-green savouries!), planted a tree and set up a display table that had FSC products on it and also had a range of various posters that helped to explain a bit about the day with question and answers on them throughout the plant.
Planet Ark chose FSC Friday to announce that they will become a gold sponsor at this years Annual Excellence Awards, that are being held next month. They also participated in our social media campaign.
WWF Australia engaged with their followers on twitter and Facebook to create awareness of the importance of Forests and the effects of deforestation.
