Eco-support activity is an ideal operating model for promoting environmental issues at the workplace. The activity is carried out with the help of eco-supporters, who are named and trained from among working communities. The eco-supporters guide and encourage their co-workers towards more environmentally friendly working methods, as well as increase their environmental awareness. New practices and tangible, everyday choices result in such things as waste reduction and more efficient recycling and energy saving. The activity is easily linked to existing environmental management systems.
