Bringing Sustainability To The Hive

The world needs to change. We all know that.

While Honey caters for social, creative and digital marketing needs, we are acutely aware that our world’s resources are rapidly expiring.

The answer? There’s no simple solution.

There’s only the journey towards sustainability; and we need to be on it together, with as many others as we can bring.

Honey lives and breathes the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a set of seventeen goals with a shared language to meet by 2030. Together, these goals will transform our world into one that is truly sustainable. If (we like to think – when) we succeed.

Will we get there? To level with you, we don’t really know. We don’t know where we’ll end up, but we do know that by 2030 we’ll have either made significant progress… Or not. We must come together. We are running out of time.

Imagine a truly sustainable world. Infrastructure made to withstand natural disasters. Children educated in top institutions with equal opportunities in the workplace, no matter their location in the world. No starvation, no homelessness, affordable housing and energy for all. Animals and humans not just surviving – but thriving. All of us, working together.

What are we doing?

At Honey we are not perfect. We aren’t trying to be. But we are trying. That’s what counts.

Members of staff from across the Honey Partnership around the world are joining together to brainstorm ideas and create action. Our ‘do what you love’ mantra means that members of our team are able to focus on the goals which they are most passionate about and create the change that they want to see. Together we can achieve them.

Across our agencies we have introduced new policies. Including an added SDG commitment clause into our employee, supplier, and client contracts. Ensuring that those we work with will also champion the SDGs and make action a core part of their work with us. We are not just a group of marketing agencies, but a group of individuals who want to change the world; and we want those we work with to do the same.

Our employees are at the heart of our company, and so we’ve also made a commitment to them. Ensuring mental health support, championing diversity and inclusion, making it so that an individual’s background does not impact their opportunities. For us, these are fundamental human rights every company should subscribe to, but unfortunately – they are not. For us this is just the beginning.

To meet these goals, we need to help each other. We cannot be afraid of trying. We must acknowledge failure, celebrate our successes and above all – move forward. We need to get moving. Now. Before it’s too late.

But it’s not just about us!

Look at all the massive companies that are taking action.

Patagonia donates millions of dollars each year to environmental organisations.
Pantene has partnered with disabled activists to ensure their products are accessible.
Lego launched plant-based blocks in 2018, and are working towards Lego bricks being sustainable by 2030.
Microsoft funds programmes to assist in bringing computer science training to underprivileged communities.

And even the small companies!

Type in ‘sustainable’ to Etsy, one of the UK’s leading small business platforms – and you get over 250,000 results. Individual sellers are using environmentally sourced materials, donating to charity and encouraging others to do the same.

You don’t even have to be part of a company to be involved!

Switching lights off. Using reusable water bottles. Going vegan for a week. Speaking up against discrimination.

No matter how small – we are all taking action. Coming together to create big change. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter. Bigger. With each individual we get closer.

So – How can you help?

We can work together. Not in a year’s time. But now. To make real action.
