Sustainability Policy

The Southern Sustainability Partnership works hard to ensure we don't only offer guidance and support in best business practice, we adopt it too. We understand no business has all the answers, but even small things when added up make an enormous difference.

Here is what we currently do...

  New in 2020!

This year we are working with a new company called Ticket Pass, an ethical ticketing company. Like us they believe that ticketing for events should be fair, friendly and social. We believe ticketing should be fairfriendly and social.  Their values put people first and acknowledge that together we can create positive change in the world. So, as part of their mission, they are committed to helping those in need.  So, we are pleased to announce that for any of our events that are not provided free of charge this year a £5 donation will be sent to a UK charity.

  Say NO to Landfill

All our office furniture is rescued - to live another day!

How many times have you past by a skip outside a commercial building and been horrified at the quality of
what is being simply thrown away? Perhaps they simply need help to understand what to do with it. That is
why the Southern Sustainability Partnership has joined forces with organisations to ensure workplaces can
easily dispose of items they no longer require - matching it with another that can provide it with a new home!
