At Ambitions, we are very proud of our little Island and its natural beauty which is why we decided to partner with UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man.
In March 2016 the Isle of Man was awarded status as a UNESCO World Biosphere Region – the only entire jurisdiction in the world to be awarded this prestigious title. It’s a huge achievement which we are keen to protect and celebrate through our recent partnership.
In a nutshell, UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man is all about keeping the Isle of Man a special place to live, work and visit. This is something we believe all Island-based businesses should support. Here’s some ideas of what we’re doing and how your business can get involved.
Protect our Natural Resources
Our natural resources provide for our fundamental needs. In fact, everything we use in our day to day lives is drawn from the available natural resources.
We do our bit by recycling everything possible and making conscious decisions about how to cut back on waste. We print documents only when it’s completely necessary and all our staff drink from reusable coffee cups.
Develop our Economy in a Sustainable Way
Boosting the Isle of Man’s economy can be achieved by retaining staff and attracting people off-Island. We demonstrate steady, sustainable growth with a stable workforce, several of whom have been with us for more than a decade.
We also help bring people to the Island by advertising positions globally and demonstrating why our gem in the Irish Sea is an enviable place to live and work.
Support and Promote our Cultural Heritage
We love our quirky Island and everything that makes it unique, which is why we shout out about our Manx roots. We even answer the telephone using Manx language!
All businesses can help protect our culture, by celebrating the things that makes our Island special.
Make our Environmental Impact Positive Wherever Possible
Businesses are uniquely positioned to move fast to reduce their carbon footprint—especially when they work with other organisations that share their commitment to sustainability
One way we are consciously trying to reduce our carbon emissions is to only travel for business if it’s absolutely necessary. Instead we utilise technology to speak with clients further afield.
Engage with the Local Community
As with most businesses, we have a strong corporate responsibility ethos and believe in giving back to the community.
Our Directors are involved in a number of local Charities. We are also sponsoring a young Manx Sidecar Racer, Harry Payne, in his 2018 season.
We are very proud of our Island and will endeavour to promote all aspects positively. If you want to join the pledge and become actively involved with UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man, you can find out more here.
