South West-based telecoms firm Pure Comms gets Carbon Conscious
With the recent UN climate change report providing a sober assessment of our planet’s future, a South West company is doing its bit to fight back.
Thriving telecoms business Pure Comms launched its new Carbon Conscious initiative in July. It involves planting a tree sapling every time a customer signs a contract, whether they are new customers signing a new contract or existing ones re-signing up.
The tree saplings will be planted in The National Forest as part of its Dedicate a Tree scheme and customers will be able to choose which sapling they would like to plant, either Oak, Silver Birch or Hazel. They will also receive a personalised certification from The National Forest.
Pure Comms CEO Rob Vivian, explained: “The Climate Change report delivered by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has provided a stark reminder of where our planet is heading unless things drastically change.
“Hitting the Government’s net zero carbon target by 2050 will be essential and our new Carbon Conscious initiative is a step in our on-going journey towards being a carbon neutral company.
“As a company we are lovers of animals and nature, and giving back where we can, so we felt it was only right to launch this not only for us but also as something we can involve our customers in.”
The Carbon Conscious initiative follows on from Pure Comms creating a rewilding area in its courtyard to attract all kinds of wildlife as part of a nationwide Rewilding Project, and Rob added: “The environment is so important to all of us and it’s great to be able to contribute by taking part in these wonderful initiatives.”
