• Canon UK supports local environment with big butterfly count

        • Employees at Canon UK’s headquarters in Reigate, took part in the big butterfly count on 20th July, to help protect the local habitat, enhance biodiversity, and raise awareness of the impact climate change is having on local wildlife.

          Organised by the Butterfly Conservation, the big butterfly count initiative runs from 15th July – 7th August. For Canon, it is another example of how it has a continued to focus on sustainability and protecting the surrounding environment. Canon’s office buildings in Reigate are BREEAM accredited and set in 23 acres of meadow and woodland, purposely built to blend into the natural landscape surrounding the buildings.

          Surrie Everett-Pascoe, Canon UK’s Sustainability and Management Systems Manager said, “our company ethos, Kyosei, means living and working together for the common good and we feel that the count is an important way to help support our natural habitats, and in turn, protect our society. We spotted over seven species, counting over 60 butterflies in total. We hope that by submitting our results, experts can work out trends in species and help conservationists protect butterflies from extinction, as well as predict variations in climate change.”

          The big butterfly count is a nationwide survey aimed at helping assess the health of the environment in the UK. It was launched in 2010 and has become the world's biggest survey of butterflies.
