A Big Thank You!

Anyone who has opened the e3 Plus website and has seen the huge amount of information and practical guidance that it offers will realize that it could not have been produced by one person or even a small group of people. e3 Plus is the result of the sustained and coordinated efforts of many people and, as Chair of PDAC's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee, I would like to give sincere thanks to all those involved. 

Over the last couple of years, literally hundreds of people have participated in the development of e3 Plus and it would be impossible to name them all here but I would like to give special thanks to Ian Thomson of On Common Ground, Joanne Petrini of Aecom and Courtney Mitchell for their major work in developing different sections of the Principles, Guidance Notes and Toolkits; to the contributors to specific topics within e3 Plus; to the many participants in workshops and focus groups who helped to fine-tune the content of e3 Plus; to the Health and Safety and CSR Committees of PDAC that not only set the strategy for e3 Plus and guided its development but whose members tirelessly reviewed its content; and lastly to all the staff and Board members of PDAC who created the environment in which the ambitious task of developing e3 Plus could thrive. A big, big thank you to all of you! 

To you who have played a part in the success of e3 Plus, please take a well-deserved moment to savour the satisfaction of a job well-done but please also remember that the job is far from over. As with CSR, e3 Plus must continue to improve. We hope you will be there to help us and share in the excitement.
