EDR recently won the Green Week Award as part of our parent company’s (DMGT) annual Community Champion (CC) Award Program. The program was launched four years in order to identify individuals or teams who make a difference in their businesses or communities with their charitable or environmental activities.
Last year, all DMGT companies were asked to participate in the second annual “Green Week” in which each company dedicated a week to raise awareness for the environment through various green initiatives and activities.
The Community Awareness & Responsibility at EDR (CARE) Team put together a schedule for employees for the week that included upcycling activities, a farm share, growing a garden on the patio at headquarters, a green vendor fair, clothes donation and the “Polar Bear Pass” where EDR employees and their networks raised $3,000 toward fighting climate change and saving the polar bears.
EDR’s CARE Team will be attending an awards ceremony in New York where we will accept the Green Week Award on behalf of the company, as well as receive a monetary donation from DMGT toward a green charity of our choice.
