Environment & Community

A Climate Positive Agency

The environment is close to our heart at Varn and we look to bring a positive contribution to our community and the planet. As well as using 100% renewable electricity, recycling whatever we can we also positively offset our business and staff commute carbon footprint through buying, planting and managing our very own Varn woodland.

Our commitment to planting trees and offsetting our carbon footprint, has given rise to our new ‘woodland office’ a natural workspace designed for our team to be able to work outside and close to nature. This innovative and creative workspace is set in the middle of the Varn woodland and focuses on promoting employee wellbeing, celebrating the natural world and as well as offsetting our carbon footprint many times over.

They say you never own a woodland but just manage it for the next generation. We now manage over 35,000 trees, consisting of predominantly hardwoods such as ash, oak, beech and cherry.  The woodland management plan is to not only absorb as much CO2 as possible but to also promote natural biodiversity through a small scale ‘rewilding’ programme.

 

 

The mobile office we call the CamperVarn

With the pandemic creating such change in our everyday lives, we wanted to provide our employees the flexibility of new workspaces and are challenging the conventional office set up. So we have created the CamperVarn. Our ‘mobile office’ that staff can take out and about, taking in new views and thinking differently as a result of being ‘out of office’.

This helps Varn workspaces to become more versatile and dynamic for our team and encourages working outside and in natural spaces, also with the knowledge that we are offsetting any carbon fuel emissions with our woodland space.

Having A Carbon Negative Effect

Based on using a calculator on https://www.carbonfootprint.com/ including staff journeys to work and that we use renewable electricity, we estimate that our carbon footprint is between 14 and 16 tonnes per year.  According to CO2meter.com a typical hardwood tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. This means it will sequester approximately 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.  We are always working to reduce our carbon footprint but based on our current usage and Varn being in business until at least 2060 we should be absorbing more than 50 times the carbon we emit.  This is our aim anyway, some people describe this as having a carbon negative effect, we like to think of it as a climate positive contribution.

Community Support

The contribution we can make to our community goes hand in hand with our positive contribution to the environment.

We are proud to have collaborated with our local Coop supermarket to provide a specialist recycling facility for crisp packets. Since the scheme began in May 2019, we have prevented more than 40,000 crisp packets from polluting the Wiltshire countryside or sitting in a landfill. Bradford on Avon Town Council are now supporting the initiative, which encourages people to take empty crisp packets to both the Co-op in the centre of town and the Terracycling Station, making it so much easier for local residents to recycle.

Wealth creation for distribution for good

In addition to our recycling efforts, we have also recently loved being part of a Bradford on Avon art auction raising funds for a local skatepark, an important community project, we support the local foodbank and supported the solar panels for the local primary school.

Also, on a global scale, we are a supporter of Business Against Poverty (https://businessagainstpoverty.com/), we donate to business startups in Africa and Eastern Europe, and we sponsor one child (based in India and Africa) for each Varn employee and pay for their school fees. It seems obvious to us that one significant way to help solve the environmental and poverty challenge is through education.
