ASCO Group

Research ASCO's sites and propose ways to make them more biodiverse.

Initiatives to make ASCO more biodiverse

ASCO are committed to protecting our planet and lowering our environmental impact. We are currently undertaking multiple projects to lower our CO2 emissions and reach our goal of Net Zero carbon emissions by 2040. Protecting and growing the biodiversity and wildlife at our sites is a challenge we are prioritising, and the initiatives which are brought forward and discussed from this project will contribute to the sustainability project as a whole.

The project will explore ways we can improve the biodiversity in the surrounding areas of our sites as part of our drive to be sustainable. The intern will compile a proposal of initiatives that will be implemented on a minimum of one site with a view of adapting where applicable and extending to other sites in the future, that will have a significant positive impact on the surrounding environment.

The project will be primarily desk based research and you will work closely with the sustainability team and liaise with other members of the ASCO teams. You should look into what projects ASCO are currently undertaking to become more environmentally friendly, as well as areas we could improve to sustain, protect and grow the biodiversity in the areas on and surrounding our sites.

You will collate a presentation of your initiative and ideas for implementation based on the information you have researched within the company. This will be presented to members of the ASCO team. You will gain knowledge and skills in collating research and in creating a project plan, which in this case, will be understood and implemented by the wider ASCO community.
