Pioppo ‘poplar’ (Italian)
Noun: A tall, fast-growing tree, widely grown for timber and pulp
As the name Pioppo suggests, the company is focussed on natural growth and a clear movement towards a sustainable future. As a leading company in the manufacture of bespoke joinery for the event and retail sector, we believe that we have an environmental and social responsibility to ensure that we’re not assisting to the depletion of forests.
At Pioppo, we are always working to make our business more environmentally friendly, from carefully selected, responsibly sourced materials through to our sustainable packaging. Pioppo aim to empower our clients by providing full transparency on our working practices, allowing us to adhere our client’s sustainability policies whilst upholding our own. We’re not claiming to be the best, but we’re certainly striving to do more and more each day.
In the last 12 months, the event sector has seen a real shift towards the ever-increasing concern of business’ carbon footprint and Pioppo truly believe that it is the accumulative approach that will make the biggest change. The event industry is a heavy hitter when it comes to sustainability, and as manufacturers in the industry, we get to experience first-hand the wasteful practices.
For us, education plays a key role in the understanding of sustainable practices throughout our supply chain, and we continue to empower our team by educating and involving them on sustainability.
A unique planting partnership
Through our unique partnership with the International Tree Foundation, and our belief in the power of planting trees for the planet, Pioppo have committed to planting 1-100 trees for every sale confirmed. We believe that this experience will be positively received by our clients, as we aim to educate and increase their awareness on the powerful impact of reforestation.
This new commitment enables us to go further and take a more proactive step on the path towards a low carbon, more sustainable future.
We are committed to our clients, as well as to our planet. So when you collaborate with Pioppo you can rest assured that what’s good for your project is good for the planet too, and that makes us feel great!
