Today, on World Earth Day, we reflect on our sustainability commitments as a business and the steps that we are taking to tackle climate change.
We have strengthened our partnership with Tree Nation, a platform for reforesting the world and fighting climate change. Tree Nation directs and coordinates reforestation efforts worldwide and has planted more than 5 million trees since its foundation. We plant a tree in one of their planting projects every time we place a candidate into a new role or project as well as several company initiatives. In the last 12 months we have planted over 500 trees, resulting in 283 tonnes of CO2 compensated.
Carbon offset programme
Last year we committed to offsetting our carbon emissions for all business operations by the end of 2020. We have invested in carbon offset programmes, assessing the impact of all work-related activities on carbon emissions across our four global offices, and directly compensating through carbon offset initiatives around the world.
Understanding our business impact
As a business, we have always been guided by our purpose and values: Human, Aware, Committed.
For the next step in our journey, we are committing to hold ourselves accountable to a higher benchmark of sustainable business practices. This is why we are currently undertaking the journey to become B Corp certified and join a collective of organisations who use business as a force for good.
We look forward to the next stage of our growth as a sustainably conscious business and will continue to seek out new ways to protect our planet.
