The Project

In April 2021, we were delighted to be tasked by our partners, CBRE, to undertake the ethical clearance of over 300 seating positions from AXA Insurance‘s Stockton site.  

For over 300 years, AXA have been looking after families through their insurance products and services. It felt very fitting that on this project, we were asked to clear the same number of seating positions.

Once tasked to undertake the clearance, we completed a sit survey and ascertained that a significant quantity of the items would be perfect for our Challenge100 School in a Box initiative.

The project took place over a week where desks, chairs, cupboards and kitchen equipment we removed and redistributed to support education in Kenya.

Reuse Rate

We are truly delighted with the results of this project. The clearance equated to an estimated £52,000 fair market value of furniture and equipment donated to improve the educational provisions of disadvantaged communities.

The CSR and Environmental outcomes for this project were excellent, with 100% redistributed for ethical reuse and diverted from the national waste stream.

Once again we would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to the CBRE FM team and to AXA Insurance for your support, and we are thrilled to share yet another outstanding CSR and environmental success for Challenge100.
