Comply Direct plants 50 willow trees at local school, Earby Springfield, to offset Carbon Emissions
On 30 November, two of the Comply Direct team spent an afternoon at Earby Springfield School planting 50 willow trees in the school grounds to help offset Comply Direct’s carbon emissions.
Comply Direct has multiple certifications and accreditations which include ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22301, IIP Gold Standard, Customer Service Excellence Award and PAS 2060. PAS 2060 demonstrates a company’s carbon neutrality and on top of Comply Direct’s evidence for this they also chose to purchase enough trees to offset their carbon emissions. They were keen to work with a local school who could benefit from the trees; Earby Springfield School is local, has fantastic outside space and was a perfect choice. Melanie Harper and Martin Hyde from Comply Direct joined Earby Springfield’s Head Teacher Dawn Liversidge along with pupils from across the classes getting their hands dirty to plant the willow trees at the school. The trees were planted to create a tunnel of trees for the children, which was tried and tested straight away by the children.

‘We really value our outside space here at the school and it was great to receive the trees, create a tunnel of willows and get the children involved in planting them”.
