We have finally achieved our next major green goal of planting 10,000 trees in the WestWon Woodland! We are so proud to have reached this incredible feat and to be continually evolving on our green journey throughout the year. Reaching the milestone of 10,000 trees proves to us that we are one step closer to making a big difference for our planet. We hope that since we have started our green journey we have also been able to share useful tips that you can implement in your own office to help combat the current climate crisis. We can proudly say that we have learnt a lot on our journey! This includes the fact that planting 10,000 trees are equivalent to filling around 130 football pitches! However, we also know that we have a long way to go…
Looking to the future
We at WestWon know we still have a lot of work to do. As you may have seen before, the goals we set for ourselves are ambitious! We are aiming to plant over 100,000 trees in the WestWon Woodland within 5 years. This in turn means we will hope to offset around 7,500 tonnes of CO2 within these 5 years also. As well as the WestWon Woodland we are also implementing other things around the office which we hope will make a small difference within our green agenda.
We have been a paperless office now for over a decade, as well as installed LED lights. We have recycling bins, electric vehicles as company cars, and we encourage staff to walk to work or even use public transport as much as possible. Also, any paper we use is 100% recycled, and this is only used if absolutely necessary. In the future we hope to do much more for the environment. Even if they are small changes, remember they are impactful! If you would like to read more about our WestWon Woodland then you can do so here. This also includes a map of where all our trees are located all around the world!
Clean Air Day
As a part of our green journey, a lot of that is about education. On Thursday last week we were able to attend the Clean Air Day Event at Buckingham University, with Buckinghamshire Business First. We learnt so much about our planet as well as the detrimental impacts air pollution can have on us as individuals. We talked to several small businesses about how they have been mitigating the impacts of climate change, and the green choices they are making in day-to-day business decisions.
