Brewing supplier Murphy & Son are aiming to reduce their emissions to net zero and also aim to help staff wellbeing along the way. They have been taking advice from Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust on how to improve their business in aid of wildlife.

The company has helped thousands of breweries and other drinks businesses achieve their targets and refine their product since 1887 and are now wanting to give back to the environment around them. Murphy & Son, based in Old Basford, have a green space around their building and wanted help on improving it.

They wanted to provide a space for employees to enjoy as well as bringing in local wildlife. Lorna Griffiths, city nature recovery officer at the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, visited along with business partnership officer Emily Patrick to help give advice.

They met with Dan Edwards, site caretaker at Murphy & Son, and discussed sowing wildflower meadow areas and introducing some pollinator plants, as well as installing bird boxes and bug mansions. It is something that can easily be put in place by most businesses on their sites, however large or small a green space available and is proven to enhance the wellbeing of staff.

Murphy & Son have been taking part in the 30 Days Wild challenge held by the Trust in which participants must do something wild everyday of June. Iain Kenny, head of technical, said: “At Murphy and Son, we are focussed on reducing our emissions to net zero in time for Nottingham 2028.

“Our partnership with the Wildlife Trust is perfect for us as it allows us to support their goals to support wildlife across the county and community. Whilst also contributing to staff wellbeing through engagement initiatives such as 30 Days Wild and helping us produce a space onsite for us all to benefit whilst encouraging biodiversity.”

Murphy & Son are also holding a photo competition for 30 Days Wild which Emily Patrick will judge, the winner to be announced in early July. All these initiatives are part of Murphy and Sons business sustainability journey and all benefitting a well set out 365 Days Wild plan.
