We are very excited to announce that we have partnered with Epic3 to tackle climate change. Epic3 is a social enterprise that helps businesses make a positive contribution to the environment.
We have become increasingly concerned about the impact we are all having on our planet and believe that this is a great service for us to sign up to.
We know our customers care too and want to see us act. Being climate positive is not only good for the planet but good for our business. Environmentally aware clients are now choosing to do business with climate conscious companies. We have also found partnering with Epic3 extremely useful when answering environmental questions on tendering forms. So, what is happening? Over the next 12 months Epic3 will carry out the following on our behalf: Plant 2,640 trees which will remove approximately 4.7 tonnes of CO2 per annum. These actions today and our continual commitment will result in the removal of approximately 2,044 Tonnes of CO2 by 2050.
Deliver climate change workshops in schools to support future generations and understanding their impact on the planet will result in the reduction of approximately 31,102 tonnes of CO2 by 2050; an astonishing amount!
Therefore, our partnership with Epic3 will reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 33,146 Tonnes by 2050 and this will continue to grow and offset for approximately 80 years. If our single business can achieve this, just think what could be achieved if every business signed up to an Epic3 package!
Why did we choose Epic3? Well planting trees is a must to ‘gobble up’ all the extra CO2 but what we really love is their ethos to support future generations, understanding what is happening to our planet and how they can help. Just look at the figures above! Raising environmentally conscious children will give them the tools to fight the challenges ahead. But it doesn’t end there. Epic3 supports change at the heart of our communities, offer funding for innovate projects and will help prevent further destruction of our natural resources.
Covid-19 has brought challenges to our world that we could never have imagined, but that doesn’t mean climate change can be ignored. We must find ways to alter our lifestyle and support projects that not only reverse the damage we have done but help future generations understand how to look after our planet. Joining Epic3 has empowered us to support the fight against climate change right now and considering the hard times we’ve all been facing lately, that feels good!
