Some of our projects include:
Health Partners & Tree Nation
We are very excited about our collaboration with Tree Nation. A charity/NGO who will assist us to neutralise our emissions. In 2020 we will plant 1321 trees in Madagascar, Kenya and Burkina Faso though Tree Nation, all countries which have seen severe depletion of their woods and forests. This programme will therefore help them as much as it helps us; ultimately having a positive impact on poverty in those countries as well. (Burkina Faso is ranked the 7th poorest country in the world by the UN).
Health Partners & Aquaid
We received confirmation in September 2018 that our first water pump and well has now been built on our behalf in Zimbabwe and in use. It is in Manicaland in the east of the country in the area near the Chimanimani mountains.
To date AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £13 million to charity.
Health Partners Statement on Modern Slavery
Modern slavery is defined as the illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain. Health Partners are committed to the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and although we are not yet a ‘qualifying business’ (as we are below the minimum requirements of publicly reporting) we have produced the following statement to confirm our abhorrence of slavery, bonded labour, human trafficking or any other form of coerced labour in our own business and that of our supply chain.

Health Partners & our Utility company
While our work with Tree Nation mitigates our emissions for scope 1 and 3, our deliberate choice of a new utility company will help us address our scope 2 emissions, as we now have 100% our energy requirements from ‘renewables’ rather than fossil fuel based power stations.
“Although I have only been with the business for 1 week it was quickly obvious to me it is a great place to work.”
