JPA Workspaces: Showing How SMEs Can Make a Difference
We create inspiring places to work and learn whilst simultaneously reducing carbon and furniture waste. We do this by providing a range of circular support services include repair-shops, re-upholstery, re-configuration, re-use and re-working. Clients’ redundant furniture landfill is eliminated through community re-homing and certificated materials recycling, with further carbon savings through our local approach and Carbon Neutral operation (Scope 1 & 2 emissions).
We actively reduce the unnecessary harvest of virgin-materials, and additional carbon from manufacturing/transport of frequently replaced items, forging innovative cross-industry partnerships to share resources maximise impact for the benefit of local communities and local environments. #SMEsmakingadifference
AliKats Mountain Holidays: Carbon & waste neutral chalet holidays in Morzine, France
We imagine a world where tourism goes beyond net zero and becomes an inspiring force for good. A world in which hospitality is delivered in a truly sustainable way, enriches local communities and is provided by teams of talented people who love what they do.
Since December 2021 we are proud to say we are a ZERO food waste business. In June 2022, we will be a carbon neutral, waste neutral business. We use electric vehicles, grow our food in a permaculture garden, champion meat-free Mondays, use 100% renewable electricity, promote a circular-local economy and limit air travel and plastics.
Sustainability is the lifeblood running through the business, from our services, our approach, our running of the business and the team’s passions. The love for Switch comes from helping other businesses be more sustainable and running a successful business that puts the environment first.
In a year where sustainability has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind, we have tackled industry issues head-on through initiatives that offer free advice and consultancy to help companies be more sustainable. We have used the past 12 months to streamline our processes, efficiency and business model.
