We are the only UK charity working to improve lives by creating greener cities


Here at weʼre raising £30,000 to help us plant 5,000 trees! We've committed to reducing our carbon footprint and create green urban spaces.

‘CMGrow’ is our charitable and environmental initiative to help us realise our initial target of reducing our own carbon footprint and improving air quality by planting 5,000 trees – around two acres – within two years. That’s enough to create enough oxygen for each of our employees, plus a lot more!*

We need to raise £30,000 to hit this first goal so our CMO team will undertake a series of fundraising challenges throughout the year with the aim of beginning to plant trees during the 2021/22 planting season. To help us do this right, we are proud to have officially partnered with national charity Trees for Cities.

"As a business, we’re increasingly conscious of the impact we have on the natural world around us, and we feel we have a duty to play our part in taking care of our planet. We were searching for a way to take a hands-on approach to this challenge – and Trees for Cities gives us the opportunity to do just that."Sue Packer, managing director

"Creating more green spaces in the UK’s towns and cities has a big impact on people’s wellbeing and happiness, as well as improving air quality and helping with water retention in the soil, which can help to reduce the risk of flooding. The more trees we plant, the better this country becomes, so we’re delighted to have corporate partners like CMO on board and we’re looking forward to supporting the company with its ambitious goal of planting 5,000 trees."Rory Field, Trees for Cities
