EK Receives Endorsement from B1G1 Founder
Paul Dunn Backs The Ethical Recruiter

EllisKnight International is thrilled to receive the endorsement of B1G1's Paul Dunn calling us "the kind of ethical recruiter you want to have on your side".
The Founder of the philanthropic social enterprise that focusses on Business for Good made a lovely video endorsing our business and encourages others to "take a deeper look" at our commitments to the planet.

Filming live from Singapore, he said, "There are recruiters and then there are Recruiters. The team at EllisKnight are in that latter category, the type of ethical recruiter you want to have on your side. These guys really do put people and planet first.

"They really do walk the talk and they are committed to doing great things in this world as well through their partnership with us and total commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)...The team at EllisKnight are committed to building a better future for every one of us, and that means you too."

25 August 2022 will see the two-year anniversary of our partnership with B1G1. In that time, we have made around 350,000 impacts throughout 2021 and over 535,000 impacts in total up to the start of 2022. The projects we have supported thanks to B1G1 range from providing books to schools in India and mosquito nets in Zambia – to giving access to life-saving water in Ethiopia and farming tools and training in Malawi.

In July 2021 we were honoured to have won the Geographic Giving Award from B1G1 in the Special Recognition Category and we hope to have made over 1 million impacts by the end of 2022.

All the projects we support through B1G1 directly impact the UN SDGs. The SDGs are baked into our business and part of our operations. Our partnership with B1G1 allows us reach on a global scale, and while we make direct impacts to Goal 1: No Poverty and Goal 8: Providing Decent Work and Pay as a Living Wage Employer and as a recruiter for jobs with good salaries at home, B1G1 allows us to make impacts on a global scale.

Our five most impacted SDGs to date thanks to our partnership with B1G1 are:
Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities = 86,498
Goal 4: Quality Education = 86,001
Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation = 74,699
Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing = 70,539
Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities = 63,974

B1G1 is one of a number of valuable sustainability enterprises we partner with to increase our positive impacts to people and planet and to reduce our carbon footprint.

In 2021, we impacted out total carbon footprint by -62.4% compared to our 2020 figures calculated by partners, Planet Mark. Our reduction was achieved by cutting business travel and offsetting by planting 5,563 trees in our Ecologi forest in 2021. We are also proud to have maintained our carbon neutral status for 2021.
