We have made some conscious choices in how we run our business to do our bit for this beautiful planet we inhabit. Here's a little about our practices.
In the age of technology, we don't have a head office with squillions of staff meaning no commuting and polluting for the planet and more time for our colleagues instead of being stuck in transportation.
It also opens us up to hire from all walks of life, anywhere in the world because we believe that talent doesn't have to be local. This choice also helps put openhearted communication at the forefront of our business. We are always exploring and improving how we can work and connect more deeply as a team in a technological world. This filters down into how we connect with clients and opens up the paradigm shifting discussions we want to initiate with other leaders to revolutionise industries.
When we work with talent that want to publish books, we specifically choose (wherever possible) print on demand printers/distributors that source all their paper from certified mills and sustainable forests. It doesn't make much business sense in the fact that the profit margins are much smaller, but it does mean that our books will only ever be printed on paper from sustainable forests and only when a copy is ordered. This way there’s no waste with a large print run that sits in a warehouse or destroyed if left unsold.
To further our efforts, we aim to donate regularly to the Treesisters initiative. Treesisters is a brilliant movement that is supporting the reforestation of our planet through tropical reforestation and works on the empowerment of women to help them grow into leadership roles and move towards becoming planetary caretakers. They currently fund the planting of over 2 million trees per year while the earth is losing trees at a rate of 14 million per day.
Trees are crucially important to sustaining life on our planet so while we love books and stories, we feel it is our duty to help contribute to the reforestation of the earth to help balance our paper usage. We urge you to join us in this endeavour as even a single donation of £10 ($13/€12 approximately) will fund the planting of 33 trees.
Help us make a change.
