Sustainability

Our Promise to the Environment

At Pioppo, we take our responsibility to the environment very seriously, we’re not claiming to be the best but we certainly aim to do more and more. We are always working to make our business more environmentally friendly, from carefully selected, responsibly sourced materials through to our sustainable packaging. When working with Pioppo, we aim to empower you by providing full transparency on our working practices.

 

We Plant Trees Like We Mean Business!

At Pioppo, we believe in the power of trees which is why we actively fund tree-planting activities in Kenya and the UK. With a great number of Pioppo’s projects manufactured using timber, we believe that we have an environmental and social responsibility to ensure we’re not assisting to the depletion of forests, that we know are so important to the survival of our planet.

Therefore, Pioppo has committed to plant between 1-100 trees for every sale confirmed, as part of our support for the pioneering environmental organisation the International Tree Foundation (ITF). The ITF works across Africa and the UK to restore forests and woodlands, conserve habitats rich in biodiversity, and help communities who rely upon forests develop prosperous sustainable livelihoods. Trees are nature's direct air capture technology, and when done right, planting trees - reforestation - can be one of most effective and scalable carbon removal solutions.

This new commitment enables us to go further and take a more proactive step on the path towards a low carbon, more sustainable future.

So, when you work with Pioppo, you can rest assured that what’s good for your project is good for the planet too!

We are proud members of isla, a non-profit organisation founded in 2020 by event professionals and industry leaders, focusing on the future of sustainable events.

Isla recognise that events are collaborative in nature, which requires commitment from all parties involved if we really want to address the climate crisis challenge!

isla was founded to promote an industry wide response, focusing on standardisation, measurement and reporting, whilst equipping our teams with the skills, education and knowledge needed to deliver truly sustainable events.  Our goal is to set short and long-term targets in these areas and then track, measure, and report to support constant improvement.

Isla brings the industry together, allowing us to share our expertise across the supply chain.  This really helps us make meaningful chain across the sector, and empowers our teams with the confidence, knowledge and resources that we need to implement new ways of working.
