We are committed to the continual improvement of our environmental performance.

Our approach keeps the corporate and environmental responsibilities of our clients at the forefront of everything we do. Whether it be a sustainable furniture clearance or designing an environmentally friendly workplace. All projects are handled with an emphasis on maximum sustainability and a reduction of waste output, carbon footprint and financial cost.

Working within the parameters of 'good practice' we are able to keep our waste and pollution to a minimum and reduce our impact on the environment.

Sustainable office furniture clearance…

Our aim is to minimise the amount of waste that goes to landfill. We are proud to say that we manage to resell, reuse or recycle 94% of all cleared furniture and make every effort to re-sell or rehome second hand furniture through our “Waste not Want not" scheme.

“Waste not Want not”

“Waste not Want not”

Through this scheme Active clients are given the opportunity to donate unwanted furniture and equipment to our selected charities and social enterprises. In return Active commits to deliver and install the furniture from our warehouse to registered charities within the local area free of charge.

Charity

We are proud to work with a number of local charities including Launchpad, supporting homeless people, Home Start,working with families in need, Deaf Plus, working hard for equality and to raise awareness for the person not the disability,and Connect Reading, a local partnership between the private, public, voluntary and community sectors that work together to address areas of need within Greater Reading.

For the past few years Active employees have been happy to give up their time to get involved in a number of volunteering opportunities.

One such is Launchpad who support Reading's most vulnerable and disadvantaged to turn their lives around and reach their potential by offering supported housing, education,training and counselling.

Our volunteers have done the big sleep out and rocked up at the Oracle in the run up to Christmas to help with bucket collections.
