Environment & Sustainability Lunch & Learn / Gearóid Greaney Title: Developing the NIE Biodiversity Guide
Date: 20th of March 2019
Venue: Gateway 3 Conference Room
Time: 12:30 – 2:00pm ( Skype starting at 12:45pm and light lunch available in conference room from 12:30)
In the latest instalment of the 2019 Environment & Sustainability Brighter Future strategy engagement lunch and learns, we welcome Alastair Ussher and Kevin McDowell, NIE on developing the NIE Biodiversity Guide.
Alastair Ussher is the Environment Officer in NIE Networks. Kevin McDowell is the Head of Health, Safety and Environment.
In 2018, NIE developed a guide for their field employees to Northern Ireland’s native animal species and important plant types. The aim was to help take proper care when coming across habitats and to know what to do in order to protect Northern Ireland’s biodiversity.
The Guide has been a major success in helping employees to identify key species and to take the correct steps to avoid disturbing them. It has also had the effect of raising awareness and changing behaviours among employees in helping to protect Northern Ireland’s living heritage.
Alastair and Kevin will describe the need they saw and the steps they took to address it through the Guide and the results that have been successfully achieved.
There will be tea, coffee and light lunch from 12.30. The presentation will be followed by Questions and Answers.
For anyone wishing to join the lunch & learn in person or via skype please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
Retirement of Mary Murphy Newcastle West / Noreen O’Brien
After nearly 47 years since Mary first joined ESB her last day working with us will be 3rd April. Mary has spent most of her time working in Newcastle West and her depth of knowledge & expertise which she was always willing to pass on will be truly missed by all. Mary will now have more time to follow and support her All Ireland winning Limerick hurling team which she hopes will have success again this year. We would like to wish Mary and her family every health and happiness in the future.
To mark this special occasion Mary would like to invite all her colleagues and friends to join her in Ballintemple Inn, Newcastle West on Friday 5th April @7:30pm
