Plant trees, build teams, leave a lasting legacy

We were out in The Heart of England Forest this week planting trees, then enjoyed bacon sarnies to round off the morning at Studley Castle – what a great way to build teams and demonstrate your commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.

CSR and tree planting in The Heart of England Forest

The Phoenix Group is enthusiastic about the business benefits of tree planting, “The Heart of England Forest provides a perfect biodiverse playground for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to enhancing the local environment, employee engagement, supporting school visits, and generally improving peoples’ wellbeing and fitness. It also provides a lasting legacy for generations to come.”

Lucy Symonds, Phoenix CR Manager said, “By planting trees in The Heart of England Forest we feel  it  is important that we are doing something tangible in our local area, which isn’t just a token gesture.  We have sponsored a large area of woodland which we can visit and we can feature as part of our CSR commitment. It’s great to know that we are helping to create England’s largest native broadleaf forest and that this will be a thriving wildlife woodland in the Warwickshire countryside. The Phoenix Way wood is planted with oak, alder, aspen, hazel and birch.”

Join The Phoenix Group at The UK CSR Showcase on 11th February 2014 at Ragley Hall for more ideas about how you can support the environment in your local area and leave a lasting legacy. Contact carolelongden@longden.co.uk for more information about tree planting and team building.

Keep on Truckin’. Cut costs, cut carbon, plant trees!

Thanks to Will Reeves and the lovely team at the Freight Transport Association, The Heart of England Forest was able to discover the fantastic, innovative actions our Logistics industry is doing to reduce carbon and cut costs. With all the money saved – they can then plant trees!

Carole Longden comments,

“When you think of the amount of CO2 these massive trucks emit it’s great to know that the logistics industry is putting time, money and brainpower into reducing emissions and cutting costs. The Heart of England Forest will benefit from these guys’ enlightened approach to CSR and tree planting.”

The Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme Awards event held at The Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon showcased companies such as Brit European, TNT, DHL and Bridgestone and what they are doing to help save the planet. Graham Lackey, the MD of Brit European was particularly informative, with his company driving forward carbon reduction through a new use of duel fuel technology.

It’s a good job these companies can see the wood for the trees as they plan employee engagement strategies to change behaviour, reduce the carbon footprint and then recognise and reward staff with a day out in The Heart of England Forest.
