An update on FIDI 39 Club’s Global Green Initiative, by 39 Club Board member Michael Hughes
The Global Green Initiative (GGI) was launched in 2019 as a joint sustainability initiative by the FIDI 39 Club, the IAM YP and LACMAnext. The project leadership team currently comprises Ashley Gorb, from Atlas International, board member at the IAM YP, Daniela Krumdiek, of Express Transports,President at LACMANext, and Michael Hughes, from the Arpin Group and FIDI 39 Club Board member.
However, we don’t want to stop there – we want you to get involved too. Together, we are establishing new trends and syncing up better than ever with our organisations to steer the focus towards sustainability.
As a wonderful friend of mine commented, ‘sustainability isn’t something we outsource; it’s something we internalise’. Our aim and our focus is to bring continuity across FIDI, IAM and LACMA, promoting and driving sustainable themes.
We love to focus and celebrate projects that everyone can join – look at the beach cleanup photos from the FIDI Conference in Cannes, or from LACMA in Miami. If you missed out on taking part in these, wait until you see what we have in store in the coming months. To see more from previous events related to sustainability search our #globalgreeninitiative tag to bring up news, photos and updates across multiple social media platforms celebrating sustainable practices.
As we head towards the 2022 World Cleanup Day on 17 September – alongside more than 60 million volunteers in 191 countries – the GGI team will release a special inside look from each organisation’s leadership every month, to inspire and engage our industry.
We are releasing a series of interviews on this topic from June onwards – which will kick-off with our very own FIDI President Laura Ganon, from Fink Mobility.
Look out for the conversation with Laura – a sustainability-obsessed industry leader – in which she will explore the possibilities of what a sustainable future will look like.
