By making Sustainable Merton your 'Charity of the Year' or 'Chosen Charity' for multiple years, your business will be supporting an inspiring local charity  that prides itself on creating a better future for people and the planet.

CHAS_PUR.png

CHAS has partnered with Sustainable Merton to help make Merton a more sustainable community and is encouraging its members to make a real di­fference in reducing their environmental impact.

In the last 12 months, CHAS, a leading provider of risk prevention, compliance and supply chain management services has made a contribution of more than £6,500 to Sustainable Merton through donations made when members opt out of receiving paper accreditation certificates or CHAS van stickers.

 

How does it work?

When members commence their accreditation application, CHAS will ask if a hard copy of the certificate is required. If members select a part pack or are happy to not receive any physical document, CHAS will make either a £1 or £2 donation to Sustainable Merton on their behalf. A simple, sustainable switch that has made a big difference to our small charity.

“An important part of CHAS’s work involves helping businesses demonstrate how they are meeting their obligations towards the planet and society through our environmental and corporate social responsibility accreditation schemes. Naturally, this means we are committed to ensuring our own organisation strives to have a positive impact.”

 

“At a time when the cost of living is spiraling, it’s heartening for both CHAS and our customers to hear about the positive impact our donations are having on the lives of local people.”

- Ian McKinnon, CHAS Managing Director
