Supporting Communities

Making a difference!

We work with our employees and our community to support projects to bring benefit to our outdoor environment and people around us.

RAINFOREST AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

The World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity, which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre.  The WLT are our partner for Carbon Balancing our unavoidable carbon footprint.

MORE TREES FOR UK WOODLAND

The Woodland Trust create new UK woodland and harness nature’s simple and powerful way of removing carbon dioxide from the environment.

  • Employee fundraising with the Woodland Trust has enabled the creation of 250mof new native woodland at Heartwood Forest, which will absorb at least 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide over the trees life cycle.
  • To help plant more trees, for several years we collected boxes of unwanted cards to donate towards the hugely successful M&S National Christmas Card Recycling Scheme.  M&S have recycled more than 51 million Christmas cards and planted over 51,000 trees – a really worthwhile project, which Impress are proud to be a part of.
  • At Impress we encourage everyone to enjoy their local forest, woods or park. Find your local green space or find a wood near you.

CELEBRATE RESPONSIBLE FOREST MANAGEMENT

We celebrate and promote FSC Friday at the end of September. Check out our FSC Logo Challenge and Tree Gallery with our favourite photos of staff, clients, family and friends all enjoying their local woodland!

RE-USING WASTE PAPER TO HELP SCHOOL PROJECTS

As a commercial printer, the nature of the manufacturing process means waste paper is created.  Whilst we keep this to a minimum, we are determined to find another use for the paper before it’s recycled.

We are delighted to re-use this paper to boost local school resources, turning it into useful products such as note pads and paper packs for art projects.

CRISP AND SNACK PACKET RECYCLING

Impress have joined the KP Snacks® scheme working with TerraCycle® to become one of the UK collection points.  All brands of crisps, nuts, popcorn, and pretzels packaging are accepted, and the recycled material will ultimately be turned into new plastic items such as outdoor furniture.

As well as helping the environment, we will also gain points which we will be donating to help our local Food Bank in Walton & Hersham.

LOCAL ALLOTMENT & SCHOOL PROJECTS

We donate our wooden pallets for local allotment and school projects.  If you are interested in collecting some of our wooden pallets for reuse please let us know.

YOUTH FOOTBALL SPONSORSHIP

We have some keen employees who get involved and run little league football teams.  Impress support and sponsor the kit to ensure they look their best on the pitch.

A CRAZY AND FUN CYCLE…

In aid of the Movember Foundation, to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, the Impress team cycled continuously on two static bikes in our reception!  We covered a total of 1104 km (686 miles), the equivalent distance from the Impress office in Hersham, Surrey to John O’Groats in Scotland! Read more…
