Community engagement has always been a big part of what we do. We’ve helped many people get on the green careers ladder through internships and student placements. We have always supported diversity in our hiring policies.
Since 2013, we’ve organised Green Drinks Brussels, a monthly event for learning and connecting in the Brussels environment community. In 2020, we added online events to help connect and train the community.
As a member of 1% for the Planet, between 2012 and 2020, we donated 1% of our turnover to local Belgian environmental NGOs, mostly to Natuurpunt where our CEO Kathryn also volunteers. Between 2013 and 2020, she was an Ambassador for 1% for the Planet raising awareness of the 1% brand in Europe.
As a small firm working globally, we have an opportunity to spread messages that can lead to change. We take that responsibility seriously. By building our own thoughtleadership in the media, on blogs, podcasts and with our newsletter, we share best practice and inspiration for a better future. We would love to share these thoughts with you. You can sign up here.
In 2018, after a one-year sabbatical, Kathryn received a Top Conscious Business Leader award from Conscious Company Magazine for her Personal Journey.
