Egis Bringing employees together around biodiversity

Egis’s environmental project management assistance team wanted to renew team building activities with an innovative programme and a day spent doing entertaining and meaningful activities.

This team is specialised in construction engineering and works daily to improve its buildings’ environmental quality with certifications such as HQE®, BBC®, BREEAM®, etc. The engineering company, specialised in environmental consulting, wanted to bring together its employees from the environmental department around subjects related to sustainability. Since this team’s projects are linked to sustainable development, it seemed logical to build the activity day around the heart of their motivation: respect for people and for the environment.

ekodev organised an activity day for all employees so they could learn more about biodiversity. After visiting the chateau de la Bourdaisière, the employees met Grégoire, the micro farm gardener. They learnt the basics about permaculture and were given tasks to contribute to the life of the kitchen garden for one day. They alternated between theory and practice. Permaculture takes into account all aspects of the ecosystem in addition to the well-being of mankind. After a short meditation time, Cyril, the owner, invited them to eat lunch cooked with farm products. Then, Egis employees discovered beekeeping during an introduction to the chateau beehives. They were taught about the fascinating organization of the colony and about the role of bees in biodiversity and the food chain. It was a moment for employees to share and an opportunity for them to rediscover sustainable development in action, as well as a way of life which breaks with current food production modes.

Violaine Dubreux,
in charge of Environmental Project Management Assistance on new constructions

Our employees really enjoyed their day because they are not used to being in this kind of fun and concrete situations in the field.

It was a pleasure to spend the day with a team whichhas a passion for the challenges of sustainable development and is highly skilled. Their approach was practical and scientific and made it easy to understand the issues related to the use of nature. Producing food differently in a way that is both economically and environmentally viable is a big challenge and we are eager to see how it evolves.
