Kene4Change

We believe that business should be a force for good. We’re inspired daily by the amazing clients we work with who are doing incredible things to create a more sustainable and better world. We want to do our bit (and more) to set a new standard across the industry.

Proud to be a climate-positive business

We’re running out of time. In 2018, the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) stated we had 12 years to reduce the pollution in our atmosphere before causing irreversible change to our planet.

Whilst given the nature of our business our impact is low, it’s still our responsibility to eliminate our carbon emissions for the sake of protecting our planet. Our work with Ecologi funds renewable energy projects across the world and protects forests to help reduce the carbon in our atmosphere today, whilst also funding reforestation projects to limit climate catastrophe in the future. We’re proud to plant a tree for every R&D tax claim we submit but determined to go further. Watch this space.

Charities of the Year

This year, the team have chosen to support two amazing charities: Ocean Generation and Mind. We will be working to raise awareness, change behaviours and raise money to support their life-changing work.

 

Mind

With one in four people experiencing a mental health problem each year, mental health is something we take very seriously at Kene Partners. Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing and need vital fund to improve services and raise awareness.

What are we doing?

All managers will be trained as Mental Health First Aiders to ensure they can spot signs of anyone dealing with a mental health problem and know how to appropriately respond.

Building a Wellness Action Plan to support staff when they aren’t feeling their best and helping to reduce the stigma around mental health.

Running monthly (virtual) yoga sessions for everyone to join in – yoga is increasingly shown to calm and reduce stress.

Raising funds through team sporting activities and challenges throughout the year.

Hosting regular litter picks and beach cleans to keep rubbish out of the ocean.

Running virtual screenings of A Plastic Ocean to educate the importance of the cause.

Encouraging team members and clients to get involved in #plasticfreejuly and pledge not to use single-use plastic for the month of July (and beyond!).

Working with clients and associations to address how they can limit the use of plastic within their industry.
