net zero business of the year

Our parent company wins Net Zero Business of the Year Award 2022

We are thrilled to announce that our parent company, WestWon, has been awarded the Net Zero Business of the Year by the Buckinghamshire Business Awards!

We feel honoured to have been given an award for a cause we are so passionate about. As of the start of this year we started pushing our environmental focus more than ever and it feels amazing for our progress to be recognised by others too!

Why we believe we won Net Zero Business of the Year

We believe that we won this award for a multitude of reasons, we have always tried our best to act sustainably as a company, but we believe our WestWon Woodland initiative was the driving force behind our win.

What is the WestWon Woodland?

We introduced the WestWon Woodland at the beginning of this year, how it works is we have a tree planted for every month of any finance agreement made through us or any of our trading names. So that’s including any agreements made through VAT Loans, Fit Out Finance, WestWon Dental, or WestWon Limited.

So, for example, for a 5-year finance agreement that’s 60 trees planted on the customer’s behalf!

Then soon after your finance agreement is activated, you will receive your certificate of plantation. This outlines how many trees you have planted through your agreement with us, and subsequently how much carbon they will ultimately reduce from the atmosphere.

Climate Positive Workforce

We are also proud to call ourselves a climate positive workforce. This means that all employee emissions are offset through various climate positive projects across the world. These projects can be anything from renewable energy production to reforestation of the Amazon rainforest!

Small changes we have made over the past decade that all add up

  • Introduction of company EVs
  • Paperless office- and any necessary paper is made from 100% recycled materials
  • Our servers are powered by solar
  • LED lighting throughout the whole office
  • Recycling bins on each floor of our offices to encourage recycling wherever we can
  • Thickest carpet and ceiling tiles to reduce our energy consumption
  • No gas used in our offices, solely powered by electricity
