Since day 1, envoPAP’s vision has been to create a world where no packaging harms the planet and it is safe to say that every member of the team is a sustainability warrior who plays an important role in the global effort against climate change. We have been doing this everyday, for the last 7 years and couldn’t be more content with our chosen mission. Although the world is finally picking up the pace to ‘Net Zero’, the UN’s IPCC Report from August 2021 issued a ‘Code red for humanity’ and warned that the effects of Climate Change could become more severe as we move ahead in time. Anyone that fully understands the findings of the report ‘should’ be scared. Very scared.
Once everyone was back from their respective holidays in January, we stumbled upon Climate Fresk– a global initiative that synthesises the essential issues of the 2000 page IPCC report into a fun, interactive and educational workshop in just 3 hours. We were quick to book a session for the last Friday of the month and the envo-team members couldn’t wait to update their climate knowledge. Come the day, we walked into a large conference room with our morning coffees and met Marie Geneste, who was going to conduct the workshop. At the top of the room, some tables had been joined and on them, she had laid out a large sheet of brown paper that was going to be used for the activity.
