3. What we have done

3.1 Within our strive to meet our strategy we have;

  • completed an office refurbishment with an organisation called Amos Beech who are committed to reforesting a Glen in the Scottish Highlands in partnership with Trees for Life. For every fit-out project they complete, they will plant enough trees to match the actual floor area they have refurbished. The forest has just grown by the size of CitNOW’s office. 3500 sq. ft. of trees will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
  • signed up to the UK Government’s Cycle2Work scheme, so our employees can now both save money and spread the cost of purchasing a new bicycle and safety equipment. This is aimed at encouraging both the health and environmental benefits of cycling to work.
  • became a certified Cycling Friendly employer in 2022
  • we now offer an electric car scheme to encourage employees to lease electric vehicles
