With Earth Day 2022 coming up on 22 April, we are delighted to announce that we have become a Carbon Positive company and are offering carbon offsetting options for clients in relation to catering for their event.
How it works
Set out as one simple minimal cost per guest, with every penny going towards carbon offsetting, the scheme balances all aspects, including transport, food miles, staff activity etc.
Carbon offsetting partner
From January 2022, we began our support for Terra Neutra’s Eco Act – which only contains projects that have either Gold Standard or VERRA certification (the highest grade of accreditation available in the voluntary carbon market).
Current projects include the Cardamom Rainforest Conservation Project in Cambodia (preventing the deforestation of a unique and biodiverse region – the habitat of many native species which is under significant pressure from illegal logging and poaching) and the Katinga Peatland Conservation Project in Indonesia (protecting 149,800 hectares in Kalimantan and providing a more sustainable source of income to local communities).
Minimising the impact on the planet has always been a big priority for Blue Strawberry Group. This development builds upon our wider Sustainability Strategy, which includes our Tree Planting Pledge, whereby we work with The South Downs National Park Trust to plant a tree for every event we undertake.

“We are so excited to have launched this important initiative – a feeling that seems to be equally shared by our clients and the venue teams we have spoken to about it so far. As a privately-owned and independent company, we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously – many of us in the team are parents and so we know how vital it is for us all to take action against the looming climate catastrophe.
Having begun this project at the start of the year, every client so far has chosen to take up the opportunity to offset the carbon relating to their event. Not only is this offer proving to be popular, but for us, it’s a great feeling to know that we are working harder to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.”
