The arrival in the office of the grand envelope from the United Nations in New York heralds great things! Joking aside, and whilst there is a danger of the participation taking over the objectives, Torse has signed up to the UN Global Compact.
In simple terms Torse has committed to participating in a meaningful way to the Global Compact’s principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
The new Torse head office located in the well established and sought after business area of Nottingham city centre, Nottingham Lace Market has attracted much interest from the local press. The Nottingham Evening Post has published a story admiring Torse’s decision to move into such a prestigious location that holds so much history behind the original industries of Nottingham. Well that’s PR for you!
Whilst the new Torse head office building could accurately be described as ‘old’, as they are Grade II listed buildings in the revitalised Lace Market area of Nottingham City Centre, we are excited about our new workspace in this vibrant area. A fair amount of preparation needs to be done first and but we will be moving into these attractive new premises soon! The move reflects an opportunity with the much increased space to build our client and supplier management teams, our data management and sustainability functions to enhance the levels of proactive support for Clients. There will be improved training and presentation facilities for internal activities and client and supplier visits.
Torse has been working in conjunction with ETC, The Environmental Technology Centre at Nottingham University, to balance Energy Management wishes with Conservation Area requirements. We have also been in discussion as to whether the Torse building could be linked into the Enviroenergy heating and energy network, although this may be a longer term project.
We will update you with more news and images soon. We look forward to meeting you at our new premises!
