Our sustainability strategy

Guide Dogs exists to help people with sight loss live the life they choose. To achieve our mission, we are committed to working in a sustainable way to make the best choices for the two million people in the UK living with sight loss, our staff, volunteers, supporters, and the world.

We recognise how urgent climate change, environmental sustainability and inequality are and we developed our Sustainability Strategy 2021-2026 in-line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to ensure our initiatives are effective in addressing global challenges. Our top five commitments focus on:

  • Reducing our carbon emissions
  • Reducing vehicle emissions
  • Phasing out single use plastics
  • Becoming zero waste to landfill
  • Embedding sustainability in our procurement processes.
