Greater Purpose

Since our inception, Green Park has campaigned for more inclusive, equitable and ethical recruitment practices and workplace cultures. We know that the talent is out there but, for many, opportunity is not. We also know that representation matters, which is why we actively advocate for visible and authentic minority leadership talent.

By meeting aspirations with opportunity, we believe we can change the status quo and create a future where all talent is able to thrive, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexuality, social class, nationality or geographical location. Through Green Park's commercial activity today we are affecting change in organisations from the top down, but to improve the workplaces of tomorrow, we believe we must also affect change from the ground up.

Founded in 2022, the Green Park Foundation brings together Green Park’s social and philanthropic endeavours under one platform with the purpose of creating a better world for the talent of tomorrow. We aim to deliver £1million of social value per annum, working with grassroot organisations to improve the lives of young people and create more sustainable, equitable environment that nurtures both aspiration and opportunity.

Grassroots Impact

Nurturing Aspirations. Creating Opportunity

From supporting literacy programmes and providing resources for schools in Africa, to sponsoring a Masters Scholarship for a postgraduate ethnic minority students at Oxford University, we are committed to ensuring everyone has access to education, regardless of their background. More recently, we have partnered with the Sophie Hayes Foundation to support their employment and education programmes to help girls and women who have survived trafficking and modern slavery to begin the steps towards sustainable freedom. 

We also support charity Trees for Cities who help local communities to cultivate lasting change in their neighbourhoods – whether it’s revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments or getting people excited about growing, foraging and eating healthy food. Trees For Cities has helped over 28,000 school kids learn about trees and healthy eating this year.

Ways We Are Affecting Change

Race Equality Matters

As a minority-owned business, anti-racism is a part of our roots and the promotion of equality, diversity and inclusion has been at the heart of Green Park since we were founded in 2006. In 2020, in response to the social unrest following the death of George Floyd, we found Race Equality Matters (link), a UK wide collaboration of thousands of organisations and employees creating change to achieve Race Equality in our workplaces. We have since gone on the launch the UK’s first ever Race Equality Week, uniting organisations across the country in activity to drive real change with lasting impact.

Driving Inclusion Through Sport

Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion also extends beyond the workplace and over the years we have been involved with a number of initiatives that look to drive inclusion through sports. Through the Green Park Foundation, we are proud to be part of Heaven Help Us Cricket Club which works with charities to bring together people from different backgrounds and encourage leadership, friendship and teamwork through the medium of sport.

More recently, the Green Park Foundation, bought together the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and leaders of a variety of different faiths and communities to sign The Unity Statement. The Unity Statement is a comitment to uphold the highest standards of integrity and to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in the design and delivery of their cricket activities.
