Dains isn’t just the faceless office at the outskirts of town – we pride ourselves on getting involved with those who live, work and study around us and how we can reduce our carbon footprint and protect the planet.

Climate Positive 

In August 2022, we partnered with Play It Green to improve our business’ sustainability practices and have a positive impact on the planet.

In return for a monthly cost per person, Play it Green plant 13 trees per person per month, instantly rebalancing their personal carbon footprint. 

We are also making our business a Climate Positive one by rebalancing our historical and company emissions to become carbon neutral.  To reduce our overall business carbon footprint moving forward, we are working with Play it Green’s Net Zero Framework, Green Energy giving us access to a network of sustainability experts.

We can track all the trees planted as they are added to our own Forest Garden.

To date we have planted 5296 trees and reduced our carbon emissions by 408 tonnes.

All trees planted, replace lost ecosystems and the trees are monitored and protected. 10% of all revenue go to a charity of our choice.

The trees that are planted are cared for by Eden Reforestation Projects. Eden is a non-profit organisation based in California, USA, and they work in eight developing countries to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests.  Eden operates in eight different nations:  Madagascar, Haiti, Nepal, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Honduras and Nicaragua.

Dains in the Community

With this is mind, our ‘Dains in the Community’ initiative was set up in 2006 to support local charities, events and initiatives.

Dains likes to: take responsibility for the community; donate to, raise awareness of and support charities that are important to employees and our clients; and be a positive role model to other companies. We inspire by leading the way.

Each year we help charities, schools, clubs, parish councils and other worthwhile groups with their compliance requirements through a two year commitment. Just some of the groups that have benefited from this are: Cancer Research, Guide Dogs, Circus Starr, Dee and Me, British Heart Foundation, Acorns Hospice, Bamfords Toy Appeal, Edwards Trust and Horatio’s Garden Midlands.

We also work with local schools to help prepare their students for the world of work, as well as offering work experience in our own offices. We believe in the future of our communities – and we’re committed to demonstrating it.
