Our environment

Egress – offsetting, tree planting and supporting local wildlife

We are all well aware of the climate crisis. Whichever side of the fence you sit on, whether you believe it or whether you are sceptical; whether this is simply just another phase of warming in our planet’s lifecycle or whether it is something existential, what we firmly believe at Egress is that it is clear humankind is not helping. 

If someone is out of breath, you don’t make them keep running. You sit them down. Let them recover.

And to us that is the leveller. Minimise our impact and give our planet, our home, the room it needs to breath.

What we are doing at Egress

As a growth company we are dependent on third-parties in both the delivery of parts of our services and for the places that we call home – our offices.   We understand that there are therefore limits to what we can achieve on our own in reducing our impact on the environment but, we recognise we still have a role to play in addressing the climate crisis and its real potential to fundamentally disrupt the environment and our ways of life.

There’s a saying that goes “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are”.

And that is what we intend to do.  We are passionate about doing what we can now, and adapting as we grow so that we create a positive social, environmental, and economic impact.

People In Forest

Traditional and innovative.  Near and far.  Where we are.

Recognising that the climate and environment is both a global and local issue we wanted to look at different ways to reduce our impact. 

We offset our carbon footprint via Ecologi

We started working with this fantastic, innovative company back in February 2020.  Our monthly funding enables us to support projects looking to remove carbon through reforestation, and crucially, those looking to remove the creation of carbon. 

Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust logo

Looking after our natural environments and the animals, birds and insects that we share them with is a crucial part of combating the climate crisis.  Supporting the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust enables us to help support a key organisation focussed on these efforts in the area and habitats around our Sheffield office.

Fleet Evolution logo

We have signed up with Fleet Evolution to enable our UK employees to access a fully maintained electric vehicle through a salary sacrifice scheme enabling them to have a new, innovative way to reduce their own carbon footprints.

Fair Care logo

We offer our UK employees the chance to save on new bikes and accessories, helping them to reduce their commuting costs and their own carbon footprints.

Climate Coalition logo

In November 2020 we signed up to The Climate Coalition’s #Thetimeisnow declaration.
