As much as we are passionate about business growth, we’re even more passionate about living sustainably.
At WePlay, our actions speak louder than our words, and through a partnership with Ecologi, we are educating our Players on how to reduce their carbon footprint, whilst also off-setting it by planting over 5,000 trees in Madagascar, Mozambique or Nicaragua each year.
Yesterday, we were also joined by Co-Founder of ZeroBees, Toby Radcliffe, who hosted a fantastic workshop for our Players on ‘Sustainability in Sport’ with a focus on carbon assessments, the Green Claims Code, Strategic Support, and a great Q&A session.
We’ve summarised some of our favourite questions from the session below…
Q: What business value does ‘being sustainable’ have?
A: There is huge value in being a sustainable organisation. From PR opportunities, prestigious accreditations and supply chain security to customer loyalty and enhanced brand value.
Q: As a digital agency, how can we limit our own carbon output?
A: Reducing your screen resolution when video calling has a much larger impact than you may think. Using sustainable suppliers and talking to your employees and clients will also help.
Q: Are there any accreditations that, as an organisation, WePlay could aim to obtain?
A: There are a handful of accreditations out there, such as B Corp status and SBTi’s Net-Zero. It’s a timely process to acquire these certificates, but they are seen as very favourable accreditations and will increase your brand value.
