We’re delighted to share that the sustainability campaign delivered with our partners, Adobe UK and Ireland, has been shortlisted in the Behaviour Change Campaign of the Year at the prestigious 2023 UK Green Business awards.
The awards recognise the organisations ‘at the forefront of the UK’s burgeoning green economy and its transition to a net zero and sustainable economy’.
Working with the Adobe UK&I Partner team, Giki created the ‘Sustainability Games’; a unique, innovative format that brings together partner organisations to take part in an environmental challenge across a month of focused climate action.
It was an ambitious initiative not seen before in the employee engagement space. The aim was to start fostering leadership and collaboration. It brought together 15 of the largest professional service companies across Adobe’s partnership ecosystem, including Accenture, IBM, Infosys, Amazon, and Microsoft.
We aimed to build partnerships with sustainability at their core and to foster a culture of sustainability in our partnership organisations. Together we took over 1,400 steps to reduce our carbon footprint and saved 102 tonnes of carbon, equating to 5,100 trees planted or 247 short-haul flights!”Sarah Gunderson, Director of Partner Sales, UKI & MEA
This was a fantastic, innovative approach to bring people together to drive sustainable behaviours. Participants didn’t have sustainability in their job title, or their day-to-day role. They joined because because they wanted to learn and act for the planet. It was really wonderful to see new relationships being built around sustainable behaviours.”Jo Hand cofounder of Giki and Director of Climate Impact
