TREE-MEDOUS! SQS PLANTS TREES & HELPS VETERANS

SQS, a UK based SME, specialising in vendor assessments, inspection & expediting services has planted 30 trees in partnership with Rewards.Earth and the Green Task Force to provide ‘green therapy’ for military veterans. The Green Task Force is a unique charity that provides a pathway to employment for veterans and service leavers, through a range of nature-based therapies, and was established to solve a number of prominent issues surrounding both the environment and our veterans. The tree-mendous event took place at the charities headquarters in Hull, where SQS MD, Lisa Roberts, donned gloves and spade to plant 30 trees with like minded colleagues and veterans from the Green Task Force. The trees will provide a source of therapy to veterans for years to come, and each tree planted will offset 0.7 tonnes of CO2 through its lifetime. Lisa Roberts, MD at SQS commented; As a company we’re delighted to say that we are carbon neutral, but we are always striving to do more. More for our clients and more for the environment, so when the opportunity arose to plant trees and support veterans, we couldn’t say no. The Green task Force is an amazing charity that we look forward to doing more ventures with. This initiative was developed in partnership with Rewards.Earth, a charity that provides trees to the Green Task Force by creating tailored rewards programmes for businesses and consumers that also helps them achieve sustainability targets and live carbon neutral lifestyles. SQS is a UK based company with headquarters in Stockport, Manchester. A global SME operating in 48 countries with 2000 inspectors

CARBON FOOTPRINT TRACKER LAUNCHED

SQS are proud to be the first Inspection company to launch a client focused Carbon Footprint Tracker. The 1st of February marks the launch of this amazing service, supporting SQS’s clients in achieving their 17 sustainability goals on the road to net zero. This will improve their green profile, time management and help them stand above the competition in their fight against climate change.
The SQS Carbon Tracker is free of charge to all SQS clients and a report is issued with every inspector's visit, showing exactly how choosing SQS local inspectors has improved a clients carbon footprint. It takes all aspects into consideration and shows the difference made by not attending themselves. 
Lisa Roberts - Managing Director of SQS commented “As a company we are committed to doing our part for climate change and supporting our clients along the way. Our carbon tracker will reduce the time clients spend calculating emissions from the inspections on projects, and show how efficient it is using SQS local Inspectors. As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations we are keen to give back to our clients, and to the environment, and we believe the carbon tracker is a great way to do this. ”
