Following the exceptionally devastating news on the death of her majesty, Queen Elizabeth, we at Stuart Turner would like to extend our sincerest sympathies to The Royal Family and to all whom mourn the death of our longest serving Monarch.

Her Majesty ascended the throne on February 6th 1952 aged just 25, and presided over the country and commonwealth for 70 years. In 2022, those 70 years as Monarch were recognised under the celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, to which ‘The Queen’s Green Canopy’ was launched to encouraged people across the UK to ‘Plant a tree for the Jubilee’.  With a focus on planting sustainably to commemorate her Majesty’s Monarch, and to positively impact future generations within the UK.

To highlight one of the many wonderful initiatives patronised and championed by our longest serving monarch, the campaign to ‘Plan, Plant and Protect’ particularly resonated with Stuart Turner’s company values for which we aim to positively impact the environment with our varied attempts to improve sustainability – notably, our efforts to reduce paper usage across the group within packaging and operator manuals.  More than 100 trees were spared last year following the transition to digital manuals in a number of our product ranges.  This “proof of concept” activity is set to extend further into our portfolio resulting in more savings over the coming years.

Our founding partnership with The Tree Council, whom were one of many sponsored charity’s working closely alongside ‘The Queen’s Green Canopy’ in support of the campaign serves not only to celebrate the reduction in paper usage, but to help actively replenish some of our nation’s woodlands.

We will continue to work alongside The Tree Council, and are proud to say that to date, with our partnership, we have contributed to the planting of 4,020 Trees and 3,022 Hedgerow whips in support of her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee campaign.  They will stand for years to come as a reminder of her loyal service and dedication to her people and country.
