Housr has partnered with Play it Green to make their workforce Climate Positive, repair the planet, and put them on the path to Net-Zero, all while supporting those who need it most.
Housr is an end-to-end platform and mobile app for students and landlords/ letting agents. They simplify, streamline, and cheapen the process of student housing; all from centralizing and gamifying the house search process for students, to using modern technologies and eradicating a layer of admin for the property owners and managers.
Through their partnership with Play it Green, Housr will now make an immediate environmental and social impact through the trees they plant, all whilst being provided with the weekly tips and tools to lower their carbon footprint and accelerate their journey to net-zero.
Enough trees are planted every month to more than rebalance the carbon footprint of their staff’s personal lives and all their work-related travel. This helps lift vulnerable people out of poverty, as they are employed not only to plant but to care for the trees as they grow in developing areas of the world.
Harry Panter, Co-Founder and CEO of Housr, said on the partnership, “Ben and I really do want to make a difference in the world we live in. Students across the country also really do have the same mindset and we feel joining Play it Green is a great gateway for not just myself, my co-founder Ben and our team to make a difference and positive change but also for our users (students) across the UK to begin making that same positive change.
Housr will be working with Play it green in many ways and in many cool partnership formats over the coming months and I cannot wait to see how we can make a positive climate impact together!”
Make an Impact this Earth Month
Richard Dickson, Co-Founder of Play it Green, added, “HOUSR is a fantastic app designed to make finding accommodation easier and more transparent for students. The business is being driven by a fantastic team led by Harry their CEO.
It’s great news that the HOUSR team is now climate positive and even better that we will be collaborating to add tree planting within their unique app, bringing the message of sustainability to the entire student community.”
As part of the new partnership with Play it Green, the management team and workforce will receive a weekly sustainability tip and related discount on a product to help drive behaviour change, enhance the culture, and lower their carbon footprint.
The weekly correspondence includes sustainability articles to ensure members not only become more climate aware but more aware of the solutions available to make progress in this area.
Through Play it Green’s unique three-step solution to climate change, Repair, Reduce, Regive, a tenth of all revenues also go to a good cause of the member’s choice. Housr has chosen to support Mind, raising awareness and caring for those struggling with mental health issues.
Housr will review the nine key programme areas in Play it Green’s Net Zero Framework, free to access for all of our business members to help them drive down their footprint even further.
All the trees are guaranteed to be planted and can be tracked by the public through the Housr Livings Forest Garden
