ProCook teams up with the Woodland Trust
By Richard Wright | 14th January 2022
ProCook has announced a partnership with the Woodland Trust to mitigate its carbon emissions, as part of the company's long term sustainability strategy.
The move involves a donation to the Woodland Trust to plant trees.
The strategy follows the Environment Agency's road map for firms cutting carbon and reaching net zero by 2030.
The Gloucester-based kitchenware retailer has already reduced carbon emissions through a number of initiatives which include partnering with DPD for 'carbon neutral parcel delivery', operating an all-electric fleet of company vehicles, switching to LED lighting and operating a zero waste to landfill policy at its headquarters.
Sarah Wheatley ProCook, HR and ESG director, said: "The Woodland Trust is a perfect partner to support ProCook's sustainability journey as we work towards our goal of net zero emissions by 2030.
"We've already made considerable effort to reduce our carbon footprint, but we still have a way to go, and mitigating our carbon emissions through the Woodland Carbon scheme will help us achieve our goal in an engaging way that directly affects UK biodiversity.
"This first step signifies great progress towards our net zero ambitions which we hope to reach well within the government deadline."
In addition, ProCook employees will have the opportunity to get their hands dirty and join the Woodland Trust on tree planting days throughout the year.
Pip Greensmith, Head of Partnerships, The Woodland Trust, said: "By investing in our Woodland Carbon scheme ProCook are demonstrating their commitment to the environment, enabling The Trust to create high quality woodland that will help in the fight against climate change and nature loss in the UK."
ProCook was last year involved in a £158 million floatation on the stock market.
Founded over 25 years ago as a family business selling cookware sets by direct mail in the UK, ProCook now employs over 700 people.
