Ground Control Staff Get Ready For Mass Tree Planting Event In Essex

Ground Control Organise A Mass Tree Planting Event To Offset Their Carbon Footprint

Ground Control Ltd, one of the UK’s largest and most successful grounds maintenance, commercial landscaping and external solutions providers has today announced that it will be organising and supporting mass tree planting events.

Staff from Ground Control will be planting approximately 2000 trees in the grounds of Simon and Kim Morrish’s home (Owners of Ground Control) in Essex on November 15th. In addition to this and as part of National Tree Planting week ENGIE is partnering with Ground Control to support five mass tree planting events across the UK to help plant approximately 1,000 trees. The opening events will be taking place in Milton Country Park, Sittingbourne and the Science Museum, Swindon at the end of November.

Simon and Kim Morrish have always had a strong commitment to the environment and playing their part in protecting it is a core guiding principle of the company, with their tag line “Caring for our Environment” reflecting this.  This year it unveiled a significant investment in a fleet of 32 Tesla Model 3 electric vehicles (EVs), taking the total number of Tesla EVs in the company’s fleet to over 40. The investment is part of its company-wide environmental strategy, and one that will eventually see all of Ground Control’s 100 company cars transition to electric vehicles over the next 12 months.

More recently, Ground Control announced that they would be dedicating 5% of the annual net profits to launch an evergreen social impact venture fund dedicated to environmental initiatives.
