Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is central to Julian Church & Associates (JCA) together with our reputation for integrity and best practice. We take responsibility for our actions and the importance of these actions on our local community, on the environment, consumers, employees, stakeholders and so on. It’s important to all of us.
We have made a declaration to plant a minimum of 5 trees per completed project where we have provided our services. Typically the trees we plant are small saplings between 1ft – 2ft (30 – 60cm) tall, depending on the species of tree. We only plant UK native tree species such as Oak, Ash, Rowan, Hazel, Silver Birch, Scots Pine, etc. The trees are planted from November to March – when the trees are dormant. This allows the trees to establish their roots and have a better chance of survival through their first dry, summer period. Our trees are generally planted at Knepp Wildland or Church Wood. Knepp is a 3,500 acre estate just south of Horsham, West Sussex. Since 2001, the land – once intensively farmed – has been devoted to a pioneering rewilding project. Church Wood is mature broadleaf woodland located on the South Downs in East Sussex. A variety of tree species are being planted along the edges of the woodland track to improve biodiversity and support wildlife.
Our goal is to plant a minimum of 600 trees before the end of 2025. If you would like to join us in planting trees as part of a project, then lets discuss and we promise to match your tree numbers like for like.
At JCA we believe that the high calibre personal service that we deliver comes down to the quality of professionalism of our staff and relationships. This is underpinned by our corporate responsibilities. We are committed to managing our business in an ethical and sustainable manner. It enables us to make a positive impact on our customers, our staff, our environment and the communities that we serve or work within.
We encourage and take a sense of responsibility. We believe in meeting the needs of our society but reducing the effects on the Earth’s ecological boundaries. We advocate for faster change in our industry towards regenerative project practices.
We believe in caring for others and creating spaces where others feel safe and looked after
We contribute to a number of charitable events and organisations throughout the year and we encourage our staff and those around us to give thought, time and effort to help those in less fortunate positions.
We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for supporting our recent Easter Bunny Hop – Children’s Disco.
Your donation, help and support aided us to provide an amazing event which was enjoyed by all!
We really appreciate your backing – all proceeds raised at the disco will be used to provide further social activities for disabled children and adults across West Sussex.”
