Giving a little back

Giving a little back

Dedicate a Tree

At Artis we are keen to do what we can to give something back to the communities in which we live and work. We’re also keen to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible to help combat climate change. These principles have always been important to us personally, and we think there’s no reason why a successful business shouldn’t do it’s bit too.

We are proud to associate ourselves with the work done by the Forest of Avon (www.forestofavon.org.uk) in managing and conserving local community woodlands here in the South West.

ForestWe have made a firm commitment to pledge money from every fee we generate to their Dedicate a Tree programme. For every candidate we place into a permanent position we will dedicate a tree to that candidate and to the company or organisation who employs them. We’ll also donate when we fill an interim role, too. By doing this we ensure these trees and the woodlands in which they live are cared for and managed for the long-term. In this way we hope to help reduce our own corporate carbon emissions, plus we know we will be enhancing the quality of life for people and wildlife across the South West.

Charity Events

Brecon Beacons, May 2009We’re also an energetic bunch here at Artis, and you can often find us organising sponsored walks and runs for charity – including numerous half marathons and the tough Welsh 3000’s (15 Welsh peaks in Snowdonia over 3000ft completed in 24hrs!)

Huw recently raised over £1000 for George Thomas Hospice Care by entering 4 endurance events over 4 consecutive weekends, including ‘Mud Runner’ and ‘Survival of the Fittest’ – and here’s a picture to prove it! Our continued support will see Huw and other Artis colleagues plan future crazy fund raising events… watch this space!
