We Care

Proud to support The TreadRight Foundation

The threat posed by climate change and the need to preserve natural resources are some of the most important issues facing us today. At Red Carnation, we are keenly aware of our responsibility to confront these problems head-on, and have instituted a Green Team to investigate and implement the ways we can contribute to this global process.

These vary from large-scale initiatives – such as a clear policy on recycling, installing solar panels to provide energy and dimmer switches to conserve it, and finding ways to reuse waste water for flushing toilets and watering plants – to apparently trivial responses like reusing scrap paper as notepaper. 

We are committed to our community and dedicated to social responsibility. Supporting local charities, conservation, preservation, nature, heritage and green initiatives including the personal development of each member of the Red Carnation team, is at the heart of everything we do.
