We prioritise purchasing environmentally friendly products and services to support sustainable practices in our supply chain.

Training & Awareness

Regular training and awareness campaigns are held to educate employees about eco-friendly practices and encourage sustainable habits.

Sustainable Travel

Monitoring Energy Use

Our energy monitoring helps track and manage energy consumption, leading to more efficient use and reduced environmental impact.

Putting people at the centre of climate change

Making a difference

Equator is making significant strides in sustainability both in the UK and internationally by investing in renewable energy and reforestation projects. Our efforts in the UK focus on reforestation, and further field we support projects that focus on expanding the use of wind and solar power to reduce carbon emissions and help developing countries with much needed resources. 

This dual approach not only tackles climate change head-on but also supports local communities by creating green jobs and promoting environmental education. Equator’s commitment to these projects demonstrates our role as a proactive leader in fostering a sustainable future worldwide.
