For us, the environment is everything.
At Cool Earth, we use our values to guide and shape our approach to measuring, monitoring and addressing our impact as an organisation. We’re ambitious about where we want to go with our plans, but we are on a journey and we’ve still got some way to go.
Our values are made up of four traits that capture who we are and how we act: optimistic, smart, open and radical.
We are optimistic.
We understand there is no place for inaction when it comes to fighting the climate crisis and we can all make a difference by making better choices. This is why we have committed to sustainability certification by Planet Mark.
Planet Mark Certification.
For a decade we have been tracking direct carbon dioxide emissions resulting from Cool Earth’s energy usage and business travel activities, as well as measuring water and waste through the Planet Mark Certification programme.
With this, we have implemented a continual improvement programme to reduce our emissions year on year and seek to minimise the waste we send to landfill from our operations, whilst heavily promoting the reuse and recycling of products.
Going Tree Free.
Cool Earth always goes paper-free wherever possible and where we can’t, we use recycled paper.
We walk the walk, so talk the talk.
We encourage environmental awareness among our employees across all our teams and promote environmental action at work as well as at home. Tom’s built a greenhouse out of plastic bottles, Ali drives an electric car, Sarb has built 10 Ecobricks (that’s over 7kg plastic packaging used towards community projects), Louise has the most bountiful of allotments and Nog’s the compost queen – to name but a few.
Our team are passionate about many other environmental issues and as a Cornwall based organisation, we have a love and dedication to the preservation of our oceans and surrounding natural landscape.
