Company clean up makes positive difference

THE Cambridge wetlands received some tender loving care when 15 of Skretting Australia’s employees donned their gloves and gumboots to take part in a community clean up.

The clean up formed part of a global Skretting initiative that sees the network’s operational companies around the world engage in some form of community work.

Skretting Australia communications and sustainability officer James McIver said the clean up was a chance for employees to join forces and make a positive contribution to the local community.

“The Clarence City Council alerted us to the fact that the Cambridge wetlands was in relatively bad shape and following a quick visit, it was pretty clear that the site was in need of some work,” he said.

“Despite the breezy conditions, the team was able to make a positive difference, collecting a significant amount of rubbish during the tidy-up.

“We were really pleased with the effort and really happy that we were able to improve the condition of the site.”

Mr McIvor said Skretting Australia had always placed an importance on being good citizens and adopting positive initiatives within the community.

“It’s also a great chance for our employees across all departments to rub shoulders,” he said.

“It definitely helps build morale and can lend a broader appreciation of what the business is willing to do for the local community.”
