www.esb.ie/em Dec 2010 / Jan 2011 NEWS 7 Paper cups! past tense! iN 2009 we used 108,775 takeaway cups in head Office, all of which were non-recyclable and went to landfill. under a head Office Green Committee initiative, with the active support of staff from the head Office Restaurant, takeaway cups were removed on the 1st October 2010. head Office staff can use their own sustainable travel mug for takeaway tea and coffee. These mugs are now available for sale in Natures Way in addition to environmental benefits, there are significant cost savings. The head Office Restaurant was spending in excess of €12,000 per annum purchasing disposable takeaway cups. The savings made by their removal have been passed on to staff through reduced prices for tea and coffee purchased in the crockery mugs or in travel mugs. There are also savings in waste disposal charges and there will be reduced contamination of recyclable waste (i.e. no more unrecyclable cups mixed with recyclable waste). This initiative also addresses one of the key targets under EsB’s sustainability Charter – to reduce our impact on the environment to a practicable minimum by the prevention of pollution. We would like to thank everyone for supporting this change. This was crucial to the success of the initiative. The head Office Green Committee is a voluntary group of staff which works with our waste management partner, Thorntons, to meet our waste management targets through raising awareness of sustainability and promoting waste management initiatives in head Office and other EsB building ion the vicinity. The committee includes representatives from head Office, Osprey / Clanwilliam, Merrion square, stephen Court and Fleet street. Please contact any of the committee members if you have any suggestions for new initiatives or if you would like to join the committee . n (l-r): Mary Kennedy, rTE Presenter; Padraig Mc Manus, ESb Chief Executive; Michael haden and John Power, Director General, Engineers ireland.

The main emphasis of the day was to help internal coaches further improve their coaching practice and also to be more sensitised to the many symptoms of stress and how it should be managed by the appropriate professionals. in coaching there are moments when we feel ‘stuck’ where something happens in the coaching relationship which we cannot fully make sense of. supervision is the term used in coaching to describe the help provided by a professionally trained coach who can help the coach see more of what is going on in a coaching relationship. it provides a fresh perspective and a safe place in which active learning and continuous development occurs and it is recommended for all practising coaches. Based on the response at the conference an appropriate supervision Model well be put in place for internal coaches in early 2011. n Caroline Coffee, Darina Gallagher, Pat Gilbride, ian riordan, Paddy Stapleton, Ollie brogan, acting Executive Director, Group hr; Dave O’brien and Orla Maher. http://www.esb.ie/em
