What’s the big idea?
This year we're GOing Green! Environmental issues are at the forefront of everyone's minds, especially ours. We know it can seem daunting and it's easy to think ' what difference can I make?'. But we all have to start somewhere. This year we are kicking off the process of making our business more green. So what's the big idea? Lot's of little ones! From reducing paper waste, to looking into more eco-friendly options, check out our 3 Green Pledges for 2020.
We have a group of people from different parts of the business who have volunteered to be a part of our 'Green Team'. These members have previously shown initiative in living a more sustainable life, so are passionate and motivated to inspire the rest of the business to improve their sustainability.
We will be updating our progress throughout the year, so stay tuned!

While there are 100s of green charities to choose from, we wanted to go for something that provides practical, natural solutions to the climate crisis.
So we've chosen to support treesforcities.org a charity that works across the UK to improve lives by planting trees in cities.
Trees help in so many ways:
We will soon be releasing more information on our contributions towards this charity, so stay tuned!
Have you been lucky enough to get your hands on one of our Sprout Pencils? If not, then speak to a member of the HR GO team. We have a limited supply of these, so be quick!
It's important for us to practice what we preach, so we have chosen to have Sprout Pencils to symbolise our GO Green campaign. Delivered to us with no plastic, just the cardboard slip, once these low-impact pencils have been used up, you can plant the end in a pot and grow either a herb or a flower! If you have one of these pencils, we would love to see what you have grown!
