Getting Back to the Wilds

- From the Leeds Weekly News

Gaz de France group in Gledhow Valley Woods Workers at Gaz de France at Holbeck swapped their desks for the undergrowth and footpaths of Gledhow Woods, Gledhow, as part of the company's Energy and Environmental week.

The energy supplier's staff worked on repairing footpaths and clearing foliage to encourage natural habitats for birds and mammals which also tied in with the Leeds Cares challenge at the woods.

They were supported by Business in the Community which works to improve companies' impact on society.

Franck Neel, head of strategy and marketing said: "As an ethical organisation, the Gaz de France Group puts the spotlight on corporate social responsibility and Business in the Community has offered invaluable support to help us achieve this."
