#01 NO POVERTY &  #02 NO HUNGER

Without food, water and a decent standard of living, we become stressed and can't be our best.  'I grew up, we help from foodbanks.  It was a no brainer for us to start contributing to the local foodbank in our home town of Poole'  

#03 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL BEING

Once our employees have passed probation they are eligible for private healthcare with Vitality which rewards people for active and healthly lifestyle, with discounts and cinema vouchers.

#04 QUALITY EDUCATION

We have partnered exclusively with the University of Southampton to support their Internship Programme.  Nothing is more important those generations that come before us,  which is why we also create the Lightrise Academy for Associates (non-workers) to enhance their own digital skills as part of our Talent Pool  

#12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION

For every purchasing decision we try to find those suppliers who align with out values and whose products minimise impacts on the Environment, this goes from our Onboarding packs, our energy energy consumption and hardware

#13 CLIMATE ACTION

We are a carbon neutral company and use the UK's only not-for-profit dedicated to carbon offset projects in the UK to fully offset our company's footprint on an annual basis:

WE ALL SHARE THE SAME SPACE .... EARTH

“We are on the edge of a huge decision for civilization. We can make things better, or we can watch our our own demise.  Throughout my life I've opted on the side of change.  Business can make a real difference”

Gareth Jones, Founder, Lightrise Consulting

  • As a Microsoft Cloud Company we benefit from Microsoft’s policy:

 

  • Microsoft has four very ambitious goals to ensure sustainability across its whole company and its cloud services:

 

  • Carbon negative by 2030 and removal of historical emission by 2050: Microsoft wants to remove its carbon footprint from the environment completely. This means the removal of all Microsoft's historical emissions since the company’s foundation in 1975 by 2050 but first hit the goal of carbon negative by 2030.

  • 100% renewable energy by 2025: Microsoft has currently purchased agreements for the supply of green energy for 100% of the carbon-emitting energy consumed in all of its data centres.

  • Water positive by 2030: By reducing and replenishing more water than we consume and targeting water-stressed regions where Microsoft work.

  • Zero Waste by 2030: By diverting waste from landfills or incineration and reducing wastes from direct operations, products, and packaging. Microsoft has diverted more than 60,000 metric tons of waste in the 2020 financial year. In order to achieve part of this, Microsoft is developing Circular Centres on-site which aim to increase reuse of their servers and components by 90% by 2025.
