Our Partnership with One Tree Planted

We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation, who plants trees to restore nature and biodiversity. In celebration of Earth Day 2022, we will be planting a tree for every current PRH U.S. employee, and, moving forward, for every new employee that joins PRH U.S., we will donate to have a tree planted in their honor. We will also celebrate career milestones by donating the corresponding number of trees for each employee’s work anniversary. To learn more about One Tree Planted, click here.

Participation in Australia Clean Up Day

An energetic team of volunteers from our Sydney and Melbourne offices stepped up to Clean Up Australia. In Melbourne, our volunteers met at Markham Reserve to help clean up a nearby creek, while the Sydney team took on a challenging site at Primrose Park. Together with Bushland management staff, we gathered and hauled all manner of garbage and furniture, collecting two truckloads and 20 bags loaded with 200 kilograms of garbage. After a successful day, we celebrated with an afternoon tea in the park provided by the Green Team.

Signing the Healthy Printing Charter

Commitments


Signing the Healthy Printing Charter

In December 2020, we took a major step forward in sustainable book production in Germany by signing the Healthy Printing Charter. In addition to the consistent avoidance and compensation of CO2 emissions, our teams in Germany commit to the Healthy Printing principle: To ensure that all materials are returned to the cycle and can continue to be used. That means, for example, that paper can be recycled, and the inks or glues used can be removed without leaving any residue, making all materials as compatible as possible for humans and nature.

Supporting Women Climate Leaders Through Community

As part of our ongoing efforts to help protect the planet and its future, we are proud to support the All We Can Save Project. Created by the editors of One World’s ALL WE CAN SAVE: Truth, Courage and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, Dr. Ayana Johnson and Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, and inspired by the anthology, the new initiative will accelerate the success of the climate movement by providing support and community for women climate leaders — scientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers — across generations, geographies, and race.

The All We Can Save Project will hold virtual and in-person programs; provide education and engagement; and direct financial support to cohorts of women climate leaders with the goal of championing a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis. One of the most crucial issues of our lifetime, it’s imperative that we acknowledge the intersectionality of environmental injustice with racial, social, and political inequities. We hope the All We Can Save Project will empower women climate leaders in profound and impactful ways to continue to care for our planet and its inhabitants.
