Our Sustainability Charter

At the CPD Standards Office we are committed to doing our bit to become more sustainable. Not only by supporting the environment but also by contributing to social initiatives that are important to us. 

In an effort to develop as a more environmentally conscious organisation the CPD Standards Office has made the below commitments: 

  • Gone paperless - all assessment and accreditation documents are now processed online
  • Downsized our office so more of the team can work remotely and avoid travel to and from work everyday
  • Sponsor an Elephant with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
  • Work with Earthly to off-set our business' carbon footprint

Earthly focuses on protecting the existing natural spaces left on the planet, as well as beginning to plant new ones. Some of the oldest and most established ecosystems are those that contribute the most to reducing pollution and as such are critical to fighting the climate crisis.

We are dedicated to planting trees and contributing to Earthly initiatives for each new member that registers with the CPD Standards Office to contribute towards our sustainability charter.

As part of our initiative to become more socially conscious the CPD Standards Office is focusing, unsurprisingly, on learning. We believe that education is the greatest tool to give everyone the best opportunities. We have started our journey here by donating to various local and international charities that support young people with better learning opportunities and we hope to develop our own initiative in the future to make high quality learning more accessible.
