Environment Policy

We have created and implemented an environmental policy appropriate to our business, we are aware of our environmental impact as a business and have taken appropriate steps to mitigate that impact, including setting environmental objectives and targets, implementing procedures and providing training so employees and contractors understand their environmental responsibilities and can seek to improve our environmental performance. This is structured around the core principles of reduce, re-use and re-cycle. The policy is constantly reviewed to ensure we are maximising all opportunities to reduce our impact on the environment.

We are proud to work in partnership with My Climate to offer clients the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions from their events and make them carbon neutral.




Proud holders of ISO 14001

The reduction and offsetting of carbon emissions is a critical part of our ongoing sustainability goal. The Admirable Crichton, as part of Group Genuine is an ISO 14001 accredited company and as such we have many environmental initiatives across our business that we share with our clients to ensure that we are reducing our emissions together, with a coordinated approach. We deliver many layers of strategies to reduce our impact on the environment, these are just a few we are focusing on this year.

Initiatives achieved

In 2019 we removed all plastic straws from our on site events and in 2020 we took further steps to remove single use plastics from our business by only using tea bags that are 100% plastic free. We set ourselves the following aims for 2021-2022 and have achieved all of them.

Initiatives for 2023-2024

We are constantly reviewing our procedures and practices to limit our impact on the environment and this year we aim to:

Key supplier initiatives

We are proud to work with suppliers who share or commitment to reducing our impact on the environment. These are some of their latest initiatives.

Our fresh produce supplier Foodari have partnered with the Woodland Trust to introduce a rewilding programme to plant saplings that are providing a new habitat for wildlife to help offset the carbon emissions and natural habitat damage from their work.

Our coffee partner Mozzo set up a fund to ensure that every purchase of coffee directly and positively impacts the community it came from, having achieved their goal of supporting financial self sufficiency for the first ever maternity clinic on Idjwi Island in the DRC they have now moved the project to Nicaragua.

We are proud to support small local suppliers throughout our business such as Paul Rhodes Bakery, Myatt’s Field’s cocktails and Hackney Gelato.

Supporting our community

Within our Business

We have a very strong focus on employee welfare and are proud to be a London Living Wage employer. We have a diversity inclusion policy that informs our core values as a business. All employees have a personal development plan which includes formal and informal training plus timelines for career progression.

In an effort to tackle the usually poor work life balance in the events industry we offer paid overtime, fully paid sick leave and paid wellness days for employees to take as they wish and at short notice. We also have regular team outings for both educational and entertainment purposes and offer massage therapy in house.

All employees have access to a mental health first aider as well as confidential access to the UK Hospitality Advice Line. We work with our parent company to support JAAQ.

We offer nutritious meals at work and cater for all dietary requirements. There is free access to water and hot drinks, fresh fruit and snacks throughout the day. We also offer a range of discounts for staff members.

There is a positive culture of access to the highest level of management for all employees where issues can be reported in confidence and managed appropriately.

Within our Community

We recruit from the local community and offer flexible working hours to support the needs of the employee where required.

We are responsible neighbours and don’t unload vans late at night, turn the radios off in vehicles returning late at night so as not to cause noise pollution for our neighbours.

We support locally based charity Floral Angels by donating the flowers from our events to them, these are then made into bouquets and arrangements for hospices and care homes.

We are proud to support small local suppliers throughout our business such as Myatt’s Field’s cocktails, Toast Brewery, TLC Stores, Pinstripes and Peonies Florist, Floral Angels, Paul Rhodes Bakery, and Hackney Gelato.

Within our Supplier Community

We are proud to be an ethical supplier and customer, ensuring supplier payment terms are met and partnerships valued.

All of our suppliers are required to provide a Modern Slavery Statement, Insurance certificate and environmental policy that supports our own sustainability goals.

We would also encourage them to be a London Living Wage employer.
