Corporate Social Responsibility
The world has slid into "ecological debt" according to the New Economics Foundation and we as human beings have been "overshooting nature" each year since the 1980's. In real terms this means that by the September of each year we have consumed all the resources the planet can supply for that year. We believe that we have an active role to play in protecting the environment around us as well as being socially responsible to our local community.
At The Vineyard we believe that we have an active role to play in protecting the environment around us as well as being socially responsible to our local community.
The Vineyard works together with Climate Care - a service that reduces greenhouse gases on behalf of individuals and organisations, to compensate for their impact on the climate. ClimateCare uses funds to reduce emissions through worldwide projects in sustainable energy.
