News — World Environment Day
The Friary Guildford is proud to support World Environment Day, the biggest international day for the environment.
Taking place on 5th June annually since 1973, the event has grown to be the largest global platform for environmental outreach, with millions of people from across the world engaging to protect the planet.
2022 is a historic milestone for the global environmental community. It marks 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, widely seen as the first international meeting on the environment.
Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), World Environment Day is a global platform for inspiring positive change. With over 150 countries participating, this UN international day engages governments, businesses, civil society, schools, celebrities, cities and communities, raising awareness and celebrating environmental action.
The Friary Guildford aims to be a driver of change by our ongoing commitment to achieve zero to landfill as part of our waste management plan. It’s actions like ours that can help to have a transformational impact for decades to come.
This year we are taking part in “Earth Action Numbers” which involves using numbers to highlight the actions we already have in place to protect our home. After all, we have #OnlyOneEarth. Let’s take care of it. Keep scrolling for the results of our “Earth Action Numbers”…
