Global Telecoms and Technology Recruiter, Eutopia, has launched its Carbon-Neutral Initiative. As part of this initiative, Eutopia will offset its carbon emissions by planting native broad-leaved trees, through Tree Appeal, for every placement it makes on behalf of it clients and candidates.
This new initiative, whilst not the first of its kind by a recruitment company, is certainly the most well thought out. Eutopia’s aim is to offset its carbon emissions and reduce the company’s negative impact on the environment. It will also encourage its customers, partners and suppliers to launch similar initiatives, helping to prevent annual emissions of CO2 from reaching critical levels.
Craig Coverman, Managing Director of Eutopia, says, “We have always acted responsibly in running our business – but now it’s time to take our corporate & environmental commitment to the next level.”
“Focusing on this important area in a meaningful way – via our Carbon-Neutral Initiative - will allow us to make great leaps forward in how we behave. This initiative will also force us to put environmental thinking at the heart of our strategy, enabling us to make a real difference to both our local community and the wider environment. By setting standards for others to follow, we hope that more and more businesses will introduce their own carbon initiatives thereby helping to meet UK Government targets of a 60 per cent cut in emissions by 2050.”
