          The Green Side Of Life
                                                Sales
•       Company Cars             –    offer a ‘new deal’ based on ‘the future is green’
1.      Encourage diversity + choice
2.      Incentives for using bio fuel
3.      Price range dependent on efficiency – promote ‘greener’ vehicles
4.      Promote use of public transport at subsidised rates
5.      Work with individual bases to set up ‘park n ride’ schemes

+ set new agenda for the company and its use of gas guzzling cars
+ offer a range of alternatives – not one size fits all
+ economies from buying in bulk
+ access funding from range of agencies eg Transport 2000

- cost of incentives will affect budgets
- short term costs may outweigh benefits
                                              Distribution
•    To introduce bio diesel instead of diesel in vehicles.

+ Cut emissions by 1800 kg a day


- Will need to establish availability of suitable bio diesel products


•    To collaborate with Eddie Stobart (a CCE stakeholder) to develop a new freight rail service.


+ one train load is equivalent to 28 trucks (volume)
Miles travelled by one train in one day = 700 / Miles travelled by 28 trucks = 19600
Savings on fuel costs as fuel prices continue to increase


- Investment cost of new venture and impact on distribution planning
                                            Production
•    Eco –computers the way forward for CCE
+ reduce energy consumption                                          - Investment costs will be high
+ improve the working environment
+ improve efficiency by using latest technology

•   Biodegradable Bottles
Propose to make the bottles out of plastarch material (PSM) – strong, easily available material which will reduce landfill
    costs.
                                       Utilities

• Energy Saving in CCE
-    consider using solar power panels in suitable roof spaces alongside water recycling
    system
+ panels will be light weight but effective in the UK climate
+ rain + waste water fed to solar panels, use wind powered pumping system to producing heating for
    all areas of the site
+ low running costs

- high installation costs
- need to seek planning approval

•   - All new buildings to be developed with an eco plan eg grass roof (plants take out CO2
    emissions)

•   + Sustainable development
•   + lower costs in long run

         -for CCE staff

                              Teacher Comments
•   The students worked for one day on the challenge on Friday 28 September. They had limited ICT facilities but
    used them well to research the key areas in the brief. Working in teams, competing within the year group was a
    great success. All teams met the deadlines set and worked together in a constructive way throughout the day.

•   It was difficult to follow the brief at times because of time constraints. This left gaps in the analysis of deas to
    decide what would work well for the company.

•   The winning team was judged by Marcus Boardall from Reed Boardall plc, Boroughbridge

•   Setting out the above presentation has been difficult and I would welcome guidance on the format – is it
    appropriate?
