Sustainability has been part of Ecoserv’s DNA since the company was founded in 1993. As we examine our impact on people and the planet, we consider how we can continue to thrive and navigate through a time of global challenges and influence others to join us on the journey. Parks and green spaces are at the heart of our communities, providing sanctuary from the bustling streets of our towns and cities and spaces for people to relax and come together.
Love Parks Weeks is all about celebrating the best of British parks and green spaces. Whether it’s walking the dog, picnicking with friends, or pushing little ones on a playground swing, parks give communities, children and pets a vital space to play, grow, and bond. Love Parks Week is set up to celebrate and support the efforts of volunteers and workers up and down the country to maintain and protect green spaces.
At Ecoserv sustainability is at the core of our values, embodied by our eco-friendly home – Howberry Park. Set on the grounds of a former manor house on the banks of the River Thames, the tree-lined avenues of Howberry Park are a far cry from the lacklustre environments of many business parks. In addition to its idyllic green space, Howberry Park is home to the UK’s first solar business park, with 3,000 solar panels. Jean-Henri Beukes said: “We wanted to find a home for the business that suited the company ethos, and which provided a better environment for our employees.” Ecoserv Group has also planted 555 real trees with Ecologi.
Love Parks Week aims to encourage everyone, young and old, to get out and enjoy their favourite park. Spending time in a park is a great way to embrace a bit of nature and improve your mental well-being – plus, by using and celebrating your local park, you’ll be helping to protect them for the future. Using the hashtag #LoveParks the people of the UK are being asked to share their favourite childhood memories of their beloved green spaces.
