In addition to our Group activities, we encourage our people to support charities and help in our communities by sponsoring fundraising efforts and by allowing time away from work to participate in, and volunteer at, events for a range of approved charities.
Did you know that only 13% of England and Wales is covered with woodland and that this figure rises to only 16% in Scotland? Restore employees have spent time volunteering at Heartwood, managed by the Woodland Trust, in Hertfordshire, planting saplings and checking the trees that have already taken root. There can’t be many businesses that don’t use wood-based products and there can’t be many people who don’t see the value of planting more trees and contributing to their wellbeing. Restore Datashred is a major recycler of paper, in 2017 alone helping prevent the felling of 1700 trees through putting recycled paper back into manufacture, so they certainly do see the value of our woods and forests and are proud to be corporate sponsors of the Woodland Trust.
