HSQ Recruitment Takes Active Step in Reducing Carbon Footprint with Reforestation Pledge for Every Placement

Posted on 19 April 2023

HSQ Recruitment is proud to announce our 2023 pledge with Ecologi to support World Earth Day through our Sustainability program. This year's theme, "Invest in Our Planet," highlights the need for governments, businesses, institutions, and individuals to take responsibility for their actions and work towards safeguarding our planet.

As a society, we must raise awareness and encourage large-scale changes to protect our planet from impending climate disasters. Currently, our way of life requires resources equivalent to 1.6 Earths, which is unsustainable for our ecosystems. Without swift action to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, global warming is likely to surpass the 1.5°C threshold within the next two decades, putting the planet at risk.

To mitigate these losses, we must work towards restoring 15% of converted lands and ceasing further conversion of natural ecosystems. We recognise that the Civil Engineering Industry has a vested interest in mitigating the environmental impact of its infrastructure, and we are committed to assisting and supporting our clients in their efforts to become more environmentally conscious.

Our 2023 Pledge

HSQ Environmental Pledge

To promote sustainability, HSQ Recruitment has pledged to plant one tree per placement on behalf of our candidates. Trees play a crucial role in purifying the air we breathe, regulating the earth's temperature, and providing habitat and food for several animal species. By planting trees for every placement, we are taking an active step towards reducing our carbon footprint and promoting environmental sustainability.**T&C applies.

On behalf of our clients, we also pledge to plant:

  • 100 Trees for 10 Recruits

  • 200 Trees for 20 Recruits

  • 500 Trees for 30 Recruits or more**

This initiative not only reduces the carbon footprint but also encourages clients to invest in their planet, promoting a sense of environmental responsibility among them.

Investing in our planet is crucial for a greener, healthier future, and businesses have a critical role to play in achieving this goal. HSQ Recruitment's initiative serves as a reminder of the importance of environmental sustainability and encourages other businesses to follow suit.

Together, we can build a better future for ourselves and future generations.
