Our team set out to analyze and reduce IGP’s water consumption. We are currently in the process of planning our next steps. Since our project won’t have a major financial impact, we are developing ideas on how to stimulate sustainable thinking among our colleagues. We are creating graphics and realistic comparisons, and showing that the financial aspect is not the only one that matters. We are currently trying to start a pilot project with the aim of defining a set of targets. This will allow us to put some clear facts on the table and consolidate and confirm our targets on the basis of concrete readings.
At the start of the workshop, we felt kind of overwhelmed by a topic and project that seemed virtually impossible. But Mischa and Dominik used some really good methods to help us understand climate change. The discussions based on the items in the “museum” gave us some new insights and showed up different points of view. In the end, we felt so well prepared for our project that we came up with lots of ideas for improvements. Our team enjoyed Mischa and Dominik’s presentation very much. It’s motivated us to start a project and see it through with their support.
Team 4 is looking at IGP’s water consumption and, of course, ways to reduce it. After some initial research, they have determined that a lot of water could be saved, especially in the sanitary facilities as some of them are damaged and therefore no longer watertight. Repairs to defective parts and optimized toilet flushing could help to reduce the amount of drinking water that is lost. However, this topic is multifaceted – there are various ways in which water could be saved. For example, the team has also come up with the idea of installing pushbuttons on faucets throughout the company, so that the water automatically shuts off after use.
