Community

As a global business, we’re passionate about making a difference and changing lives through learning. Together, we can provide opportunities for people to grow, and impact society in a way that helps build a long term and prosperous future for all.

Acting ethically in everything we do remains at the heart of our vision and our responsible business approach is a key driver in achieving this. Led by global societal challenges identified by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we are committed to actions that drive positive change within all our communities. This means working with all stakeholders to support education, equity (ED&I) and the environment. We are proud to be a founding signatory of the SDG Publishers Compact.

Emerald charity of the year

Our purpose is rooted in the belief that knowledge and education can work to diminish divides and work to make a change for the future. But, sadly the reality is that not everybody has the same chances in life to be able to access an education, or the opportunity to learn throughout their lives. So, as a Group we collectively chose Save the Children as our 2022 Charity of the Year. To date we have raised over £21,000.

Save the Children works with children and communities the world over to help in many areas of their lives, with one key area being around education and working towards children keeping on learning, no matter what circumstances they may be facing.  

Going the distance for Ukraine

We took on the challenge to cross the distance from West to East Ukraine in a bid to help raise vital funds for Save the Children's Ukrainian Appeal. 

With the collective efforts of everyone across the Group we covered more than our target of 2,092 miles, earlier that we anticipated, thanks to everyone getting behind the challenge, and working together.

To date we've raised over £21,000, which Emerald is donating a match fund of up to £10,000.

Give back day

We believe in giving back to our communities so this year colleagues across Emerald came together to support our give back day in memory of our founder, Dr Keith Howard OBE. 

Keith dedicated so much of life to giving back to charities and the community, so to honour this memory, we planned a day where we can all give something back to our local communities or to charities close to our heart. 
 

Wear Red Day 2022

In support of Show Racism the Red Card’s annual fundraising event Wear Red Day, colleagues from across Emerald took part, sharing their selfies wearing red and making a donation to allow our charity of the year to support their vital anti-racism work.
