It’s Earth Day 2021 and the theme for this year is “Restore Our Earth”. It’s easy to reflect on the last twelve months and focus on the pandemic, but what is most important for 1Spatial is taking the things they have learned and leveraging them as they look to improve our future.
We’ve seen the true power of remote interactions, and driven innovation from home. It’s easy to understate the significance of Teams, Zoom and any other tool you use for collaboration – not least of all in the context of environmental impacts.
Through efforts to embrace remote work, we’ve seen a significant reduction in travel. The positive impact this has on the environment is clear, and 1Spatial are taking that forward with improved flexible working options and working with customers to keep remote meetings at the forefront of our interactions.
Acknowledging the impact that necessary travel has on the environment is also important to 1Spatial, and they we have taken steps to offset flights from their Head Office in the UK. Even with the reduced travel of 2020 the 1Spatial donation will help the Woodland Trust care for enough woodland to capture around 44 tonnes of carbon.
The next lesson is the importance of teamwork, and how a strong sense of community action can help drive workplace and environmental innovation. 1Spatial set-up community activities throughout the pandemic, including the recent global sunflower growing competition, and continued to focus on how they can best raise money for charitable causes. One example being that they chose to pair the toilets in the Head Office with toilets around the world, thanks to the excellent work of Toilet Twinning.
1Spatial has got big plans for the future, and are working with customers and partners to make the world safer, smarter and more sustainable. Their ambition is to take the things they learned from 2020 and use them in the future, contributing in any way they can to the ethos of Earth Day and the “Restore our Earth” mantra: whether through internal initiatives, charity work, carbon offsetting schemes or delivering innovative products that have positive impact on the environment through the work of their clients.
