Day 3: Revealing Energy Waste
The Energy Conservation Inspection was a pivotal activity during the week, as it allowed us to assess our current energy consumption patterns and identify areas of waste. Our dedicated team carefully analyzed water, fuel, and other resources’ usage to reveal inefficiencies and expose opportunities for improvement. Through this process, many recommendations were made to the relevant personnel in charge of various areas of the plant to develop management standards to better manage energy and resource use. For example, the relevant personnel in charge of estates were tasked to develop a more responsive and urgent reporting system for faults because the inspection revealed a leaking tap in the residence B kitchen which was leading to water wastage. Other similar suggestions were made to other units.
Day 4: Empowering with Knowledge
A summary meeting with the company management provided a valuable opportunity to project the energy conservation efforts and results achieved during the first half of the year. We celebrated our achievements, acknowledged the hard work of staff, and recognized the impact of collective efforts. The meeting was also a platform to define our goals for the remaining half of the year and outline a robust action plan to intensify our energy conservation endeavors.
Day 5: Equipping for a Greener Future
To end the week on an educational note, we organized an interactive online and in-person training session for Ghanaian and Chinese staff. This session deepened our understanding of energy conservation and highlighted the important role each staff member plays in achieving our sustainability objectives. Armed with newfound knowledge and inspiration, some staff contributed suggestions for energy conservation and our team left the training better equipped to make informed choices that promote energy conservation to reduce waste and protect the environment.
