There may be rather more green than usual around Fleet Pond on Tuesday 10th May, as employees of Dimension Data will be sporting their new ‘green’ company logo, as they raise money for the Clearwater Campaign.
Dimension Data, an ICT services and solutions provider based at Waterfront Business Park, is refreshing its corporate brand identity and at the same time becoming more environmentally green.
Dimension Data employees frequently visit the nature reserve for lunchtime walks and running sessions and, of course, enjoy a fantastic view of the pond from their office. So, to give something back to the pond, they have decided to support the Group’s global brand refresh celebrations, by holding a 12-hour Refresh Fleet Pond fund raising relay.
Starting at 7am, staff will take turns to run or walk around Fleet Pond, with a continuous relay of employees passing on a baton for 12 hours, until the last participant completes a final circuit of the pond at 7pm.
Julie Long, head of Dimension Data’s UK Environmental Think Tank said, “This local amenity is very popular and deserves to be kept in the best possible condition with a balanced and sustainable ecology.
We are using our new corporate brand identity as a lever to encourage the community to support the future environmental health of the Pond. We aim to have at least one employee on the course during the 12 hours, dressed up in fun green colours depicting the refreshed logo. Dimension Data employees will also be on hand to encourage donations for the campaign.”
