“On a mission to inspire sustainable business” is the aim of Action Sustainability, the London-based organisation committed to helping others achieve best practice.

Founded in 2006 as a social enterprise, Action Sustainability is a dynamic and progressive company that specialises in sustainability and sustainable supply chain services.

The company has physical offices in London and Sydney, Australia, but its work is global – reaching clients in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Americas.

Not only does Action Sustainability want to inspire the people that it works with, but it says that the sustainability sector itself is one that inspires the people working within it.

With a dedicated and passionate team all bringing different skills sets and expertise, the organisation has made a commitment to empower its people to share their ideas and feedback so that meaningful change can be made.

Since March 2020 the business has adapted to virtual delivery in nearly everything it does. Although it says this was a “major challenge”, its substantial investment in technology and ergonomic assessments of its employees’ needs whilst working remotely enabled it to transition successfully.

During remote working, Action Sustainability held regular check-ins, socials, and all-team meetings to keep people connected.

Quote from the top...

I am extremely proud that our employee engagement strategy has been recognised with a One to Watch Best Companies accreditation. I hope our recognition speaks volumes not just for what a great place to work Action Sustainability is, but also for what an inspiring sector Sustainability is. But we recognise that this is a work in progress, and we will continue our efforts to be an even better employer.

Ian Heptonstall, Director and Co-Owner - Action Sustainability
