GW Environmental Joins Play It Green


GW Environmental Consulting has doubled down on their eco-efforts by partnering with Play it Green to drive sustainability within their business, make their workforce Climate Positive, and assist them on the road to Net-Zero.

GW Environmental Consulting was founded by Graeme Warnell in 2016 who, after becoming fed up with the rhetoric he was hearing regarding environmental protection, stepped away from a 26-year career within the oil and gas sector.

His company now helps to educate businesses on the risks associated with chemical cleaning products and provides cost-effective, innovative nature-based alternatives. GW Environmental still work closely with the oil and gas sector but this time helping them to eradicate the risk and impact of hydrocarbon contamination wherever it may occur both now and for the future.

Through their partnership with Play it Green, GW 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.

Warnell said, “Having worked alongside some of the world’s worst polluting companies, I now help educate and guide businesses and organisations on how they can reduce both contaminated waste and their carbon footprint using nature-based products instead of harmful chemical ones.

“Through domestic and commercial cleaning, the UK pours more than 1,000,000 litres of harmful toxic products into drains, sewers, and soakaways. This all ends up back in the environment with devastating consequences.

“We have helped petrol retailers, hotels and restaurants, shipping companies, food processing plants, facilities management companies and even airports. In fact, there are very few businesses that are not using harmful products.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Play it Green because we believe that in order to educate society on sustainability and the environment, we must demonstrate the right values ourselves.”

Richard Dickson, Co-Founder of Play it Green, added, “Cleaning products and services can add a huge amount to a business’s footprint, that’s why I’m really excited about our partnership with GW environmental services. They can help every business to reduce their impact and clean in a more conscious way.”


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. GW has chosen to support Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, supporting and caring for sick children and their families.

GW Environmental 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 GW Environmental Forest Garden.
