We engage our employees and wider stakeholders to unlock their talent and knowledge to drive year on year progress in sustainability.
We recognise that transparent communication is essential for transformational change and we quantifiably contribute to 5 SDG’s.
Grace’s Day Nursery & Pre-School feel that it is important that children learn at an early age that they need to look after our planet a lot better than previous generations. Therefore, the nursery creates an environment where the importance of sustainability is nurtured and encouraged. Whether that be through activities at its Forest School and learning about the importance of nature, recycling in the nurseries, engaging with the wider community or helping the vegetables to grow in the vegetable gardens!
In this crucial Decade of Action, the nursery wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. Over the next year, Grace’s Day Nursery & Pre-School is committed to tackling climate change and inspiring others to join the movement.
Through Planet Mark, the nursery has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. Grace’s Day Nursery & Pre-School look forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Grace’s Day Nursery & Pre-School has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
