At Support Dogs we are committed to continuous improvement in reducing our environmental impact and incorporating sustainable ways of working throughout the organisation. We aim to do this in the most cost-effective manner as we need to ensure all funds are utilised for our core work to change peoples lives.

We promote environmental responsibility amongst our teams, and we actively encourage our teams to give feedback on how we can improve as a charity in different areas. We work towards a goal of creating a workplace that is more sustainable without being complicated.

As a charity we have worked hard to improve our practices in waste and energy management, we try to reduce our carbon footprint were possible and use alternative green solutions to everyday tasks.

We’ve already begun this process by changing the materials, we use from ensuring our magazine is made and packaged in recyclable paper, changing our poo bags from plastic to biodegradable and introducing a range of toys made from 100% recycled products. We also strived to reduce our carbon footprint by equipping staff with means to work from home, to reduce journeys, allow more interactions with clients to be done on zoom rather than unnecessary journeys to our centre and introducing a hybrid fleet car to the charity.

We are constantly learning and improving the ways we run our organisation to help create a better world now and for future generations.
