Reading the Green PagesGreenrock reflects on one year in The Green Pages.

For Greenrock, the mantra "Changing the Mindset" implies a long-term commitment to the progressive shift toward a more sustainable Bermuda - in the environmental, social, and economic spheres. To do so, it is important to speak directly to the public, with a clear message, about ways to generate meaningful change. Working in partnership with The Royal Gazette's Green Pages has been an opportunity to do just that.


Savings for Seniors helps senior citizens to reduce their electricity bills. The project began in 2013 and was made possible by a generous grant from Catlin End-to-End Bermuda.

Greenrock was formed in 2003, but it truly began its work in the Bermuda community in 2005.  At that time, Greenrock’s constitution was redrafted and a formal structure was developed. Since then, the day-to-day governance of Greenrock has been supervised by a Management Committee. This Committee comprises volunteers with a wide variety of backgrounds.  Each member of the Committee is assigned an area of focus and is encouraged to build their own sub-committees to help execute various tasks.

Somersfield Academy invited the Greenrock School Roadshow to visit during their environment day celebrations in June. This school is already a leader in promoting environmental awareness, but they needed and wanted more support to keep up this mindset.

The Roadshow crew arrived thinking it would be the usual assembly-style presentation. This time was different. The Somersfield students were giving their own presentations on the importance of being aware of the dangers of certain plastic water bottles and the consumerism attitude we have so quickly adopted when it comes to buying bottled water. They were also discussing green labels and what they actually mean. In short, the Roadshow crew had a lot to learn from them. How refreshing!

Solar powerGreenrock backs Government's tabling energy legislation

A sustainable development group is backing Government's move to enact energy legislation before a White Paper. Greenrock has initiated several energy conservation programmes in the past couple of years, educating residents and businesses on conserving power.

It welcomed legislation in the House of Assembly on Friday to create an Energy Commission to regulate costs and to investigate complaints regarding suppliers. The Energy Act 2009 also authorises the Energy Minister to issue all licences.
