Building a Sustainable Future Together 🌍
We are thrilled to share the exciting updates from our first-ever Green Team meeting, where representatives from our UK and Global offices came together to discuss our sustainability efforts. This meeting was a significant milestone in our journey toward achieving our net-zero goals. Let's dive into the key highlights and initiatives we discussed.
What we have accomplished so far:
During the meeting, we took the opportunity to reflect on the progress we have made in sustainability. Some of our notable achievements include:
- Energy Efficiency: We are proud to announce that our office has achieved an impressive Energy Label A+++ rating. This remarkable achievement demonstrates our commitment to reducing energy consumption and minimising our environmental impact. Our office is now fully powered by solar panels and electricity, ensuring a clean and renewable energy source for our operations.
- Building Efficiency: To enhance energy efficiency further, we have invested in insulation measures that help regulate temperature and reduce the need for excessive heating or cooling. Additionally, we have transitioned to energy-efficient LED lighting throughout our office space, significantly reducing our electricity consumption.
- Waste Management: We have implemented a robust waste separation system to promote responsible waste management practices. Our employees actively participate in sorting waste into designated bins for glass, plastic, paper, and more. This initiative ensures proper recycling and reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
- Paper Reduction: We recognize the importance of minimizing paper consumption to preserve valuable resources. Therefore, we have implemented strategies to reduce paper usage in our office. By embracing digital solutions and encouraging electronic communication, we aim to create a paperless work environment.
- Water Conservation: Conscious of the importance of water conservation, we have implemented measures to reduce water consumption. We have installed water-saving fixtures, educated employees on responsible water usage, and regularly monitor water consumption patterns to identify areas for improvement.
- Indoor Greenery: Our office features an abundance of plants, not only to enhance the aesthetic appeal but also to improve air quality and create a healthier work environment. Plants contribute to reducing carbon dioxide levels, purifying the air, and promoting a sense of well-being among our employees.
- Zero Waste Initiatives: We are actively promoting zero waste practices within our office. Through regular communication and awareness campaigns, we encourage employees to adopt sustainable habits such as reducing single-use items, reusing materials, and composting organic waste. Additionally, we organize zero waste sales to extend the lifecycle of products and minimize waste generation for our practitioners and their clients.
- Conscious logistic partner: We have partnered with Aramex, a conscious logistics provider committed to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable transportation solutions. By working together, we ensure that our shipping and logistics activities align with our sustainability goals.

Finally, we are proud to showcase our new certifications proudly displayed in our office. Alongside our Energy Label a+++ certification, we have now obtained the esteemed Planet Mark certification. These recognitions symbolize our ongoing efforts to prioritize sustainability and minimize our ecological footprint. We have also celebrated the accomplishments of our pharmacist and their Orthomolecular Therapy diploma, reflecting our commitment to professional growth and well-being
We are confident that our united efforts will continue to yield impressive results in the months and years to come. Stay tuned for further updates on our journey toward a greener future.
