Thomson Reuters strengthens bio diversity near its swiss office
Walk into any Thomson Reuters office, world-wide, and you will see concerted efforts and initiatives to thoughtfully incorporate environmental sustainability in the way we operate and conduct our business. Last week, employees from the Thomson Reuters Global Resources office in Baar, Switzerland, spent a day creating a new habitat for wildlife in their community by planting more than 1200 native trees and shrubs.
The project echoes Thomson Reuters commitment to corporate sustainability, and was initiated by longtime employee, Tim Nixon, director of Legal Content in Switzerland. Part of Tim’s role at Thomson Reuters is to help make transparent corporate sustainability efforts to determine what that data says about a business and how the information can be useful to investors. Prior to moving to Switzerland, Tim led the Green Team at the company’s Eagan, Minn., campus and was responsible for a number of initiatives to strengthen biodiversity there, including re-introducing native prairie to a large parcel on the campus and installing bluebird, wood duck and chimney swift houses.
