There’s no escaping it: consumerism is the root cause of the environmental issues we now face. We have all been, willingly or otherwise, swept up by an ever-evolving economy of excess. Our ecosystem is paying the price, and if left undone the damage to our environment will be irreversible.
To change this, we’ve gone back to basics.
At Saint Associates, we embody this philosophy in our business model. We don’t have lavish offices, instead we reduce our carbon footprint by embracing remote working and make use of virtual technology to stay connected.
Global collaboration is at the core of how we work – both as a team and with our clients. We don’t believe in localized ‘working wages’ and quite often accept pro bono projects for worthwhile initiatives.
We believe that brands can do better. And in keeping with our philosophy to readjust the balance, we offer other global and ethical companies a service to match their ethos.
Consumerism may have a negative impact on the environment but so do our business choices. Brands are now more aware that they shouldn’t sit in the same room with their marketing agency in order to keep track of campaigns or discuss plans for the next quarter. We can now have conversations with people and teams in other cities, countries and even continents, from the comfort of our own work space. Less travel equals less carbon dioxide – and that means one thing: a happy, healthy, thriving natural environment.
