PR outfit Milk & Honey has made a series of sustainability-focused commitments inline with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The string of changes were outlined in the business’s People, Purpose, Plant B corp impact report released earlier this month.
“Over the past year we have worked to ensure that we are committed, responsible and active citizens. While we are pleased with our progress, we are not complacent. Each year’s report is simply the baseline for the next: an annual waypoint to guide and inspire us as we seek to improve. To be a better business, ” said Milk & Honey founder and managing partner Kirsty Leighton [feature image].
“We are proud, excited and hopeful — because this first report is simply the first step.”
The goals set out in the report are:
1. Go plastic neutral in 2020
2. Disclose the percentage of turnover from high carbon clients by 2020
3. Invest five percent of team time in volunteer projects and fundraising initiatives
4. Increase team ownership to a third by 2021
5. Go carbon neutral by 2022
The company says its growth is driven by creating a happy workforce and being a force for good.
“Milk & Honey was set up to be a different kind of agency. One where people come first. Where passion and creativity are prized,” the company says.
“Where clients are celebrated. One where there is time to think, to go the extra mile. A land of opportunity. We deliver brave, socially and ethically responsible campaigns that influence markets and inspire people.
“As a team we live and breathe our values of energy, bravery, passion, collaboration, respect and loyalty.”
