A room at EDF Energy’s office in Exeter has been transformed in a bid to spark debate on sustainability among staff and visitors.

The room at the Exeter Business Park office has been turned into a permanent interactive sustainability room. Two walls allow people to directly write their comments and ideas on sustainable issues, while a magnetic section of another wall allows giant ‘Post-it’ notes to be stuck on, highlighting the targets that form part of EDF Energy’s sustainability commitments.

Kay English, an EDF Energy sustainability executive, said: “We’ve gone for a really in-your-face approach that’s visual and invites people to have their say. The response has been really positive. Everything we used for the display is borrowed, reused or sustainably sourced, right down to the wallpaper paste.

“We hope it provokes real debate on our sustainability commitments and what more we should be doing as a company, in teams and as individuals to become more sustainable.”
