Our Social Impact Journey

more green

We’re sharing our CSR journey to becoming a more resourceful, ethical and sustainable business. It’s all about people and planet.

We launched a package of COVID-19 support for businesses

April 1, 2020

With Surrey Event Professionals and Guildford Hub, we’re offering our services for free to local businesses while we’re all navigating these uncertain times.

We joined forces with local businesses to create Surrey Drive

March 23, 2020

We’re working with Surrey Event Professionals to raise the funds needed to support the Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford with home-cooked meals supplied by local caterers.

We started reducing our travel carbon footprint

March 13, 2020

We encourage staff to choose the greenest methods of commuting, and carbon offset all essential work-related travel.

We made a commitment to sustainable stationery

March 2, 2020

We use up all existing stationery and paper before buying anything new – when we do have to buy, we choose recycled and recyclable products.

We launched a Social Impact department to offer free services to charity

March 2, 2020

A core part of who we are involves helping others. One way we do that is by offering charities access to everything we do at no cost.

We introduced reusable water bottles and coffee cups in the office

February 24, 2020

Encouraging our staff to cut down on unnecessary waste while saving natural resources and reducing carbon emissions.

We added more plants to the office

February 18, 2020

Plants at work help lower stress levels, clean the air, reduce noise, boost creativity and look good!

We made a plan to use less energy

February 7, 2020

We make a point to turn off screens and lights when not in use, and are moving to energy-efficient lightbulbs.

We started to recycle or repurpose old IT equipment

February 3, 2020

We either give our unwanted IT equipment to charity (or anyone who might need it), or make sure it’s recycled responsibly.

We launched our ‘Save the high street’ campaign in Guildford

January 14, 2020

As high streets continue to see shops closing, we offered Guildford businesses a free video to promote what Guildford High Street has to offer. #savethehighstreet

Meatless Monday became a regular thing

January 7, 2020

Making plant-based choices brings health benefits, reduces our carbon footprint and helps us conserve precious environmental resources.

We started making extra efforts to conserve water

December 9, 2019

No single-use water bottles or water dispensers in the office, and considerate use of water (e.g. washing up all in one go at the end of the day).

We introduced Mental Health First Aid training for all our staff

December 2, 2019

We think it’s important for our team to have an in-depth understanding of mental health and how to support themselves and each other. Thank you to Oakleaf for training us all!

Reduce, reuse, recycle became a major focus for us

November 29, 2019

Our office mantra! It saves energy and natural resources, helps to lower pollution levels and reduces the need for landfill.

We agreed to print less (ideally not at all)

November 8, 2019

We only print in the office when we absolutely have to – which isn’t often. We’re saving paper and energy by using digital alternatives.

We started supporting charities through our social clinics

October 7, 2019

We donate £1 for every Social Clinic we deliver to our chosen charities through the Work for Good platform.

We started our own Random Acts of Kindness days

August 7, 2017

We love our Random Act of Kindness days when we surprise local organisations and businesses with presents and appreciation!
