Archie is a 'Sustainability' winner

With summer looking like it is about to disappear we are now able to properly test the fixes to 'Archie' that have taken place since the storm damage earlier in the year - fingers crossed that everything continues to go well.

Some good news : Torrs Hydro has also won the monthly Capgemini Sustainability award given to any employee who is actively involved in a suitable project/scheme - one of our Directors (Sean Whewell who works as a Smart Energy consultant for Capgemini) nominated Torrs Hydro and as a result we have been awarded with a cheque for £500 and entered into the annual award for £1000

Capgemini’s Sustainability programme focuses on reducing the impact on the environment, contributing to the communities where we work and live and engaging effectively with our people.  The principles of sustainability and corporate responsibility are deeply rooted in our core values and influence not just what we do internally but also the way we do business with our clients. This approach helps achieve better results, continue to attract the best people and win new business. In 2011 Capgemini has been awarded Platinum status in Business in the Community’s (BITC) Corporate Responsibility Index (CRI), received three Big Ticks, of which two were Highly Commended, in BITC’s Awards for Excellence for sustainability initiatives and have been listed in The Sunday Times Best Green Companies for the third year running.
