80% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) occur in a home environment where defibrillators are usually unavailable. Immediate CPR and early defibrillation within 3-5 minutes of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) taking place is needed for the best chance of survival.
90-95% of all SCA's are fatal. This is often due to a lack of quick and effective treatment. Defibrillators are needed within the community to help boost the survival rate of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

We have a responsibility to reduce the size of our carbon footprint and the amount of waste we produce. By recycling our paper, cardboard, plastics, glass and other waste, we are able to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels for energy by cutting down the energy used in the production process to directly reduce the amoung of greenhouse gas emissions.
We have moved to a renewable energy source for our gas and electricity to ensure we are supporting the environment and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
We have moved most of our packaging to recycled, including bubble wrap, envelopes and space packing. We are currently sourcing recycled packing tape.
We have invested heavily into new systems to streamline our processes. This in turn reduces our consumption of paper, and therefore our recycling.

We have a cycle to work scheme for our employees to encourage and promote a healthy lifestyle as well as to cut carbon emissions. When travel by car is necessary, car sharing is encouraged.
