Encouraging debate — Martin Fahey

Mitsubishi Electric is urging everyone involved in designing, creating and maintaining the built environment in the UK to join an online debate on how energy use in buildings can be reduced. The company has set up Twitter and LinkedIn accounts for its Green Gateway campaign to promote sustainable thinking within the built environment.

Martin Fahey, sustainable-solutions manager with the company, says, ‘This is a straightforward way to generate a lively ongoing debate that involves as many people as possible. That is what the Green Gateway is all about, and social media offers people an ideal way to do the right thing and get involved so we can all work together towards making a difference.’

Visitors to the Green Gateway LinkedIn group will be able to see the latest thoughts of group members and contribute to the ongoing discussion. The Twitter account (@green_gateway) will offer followers news and views from those within and outside the industry, including key opinion leaders.

Martin Fahey comments, ‘No one person or company has all the answers, but as an industry we do have the technology and the expertise to really make a difference if we can find ways of getting our heads together.’
