This page sets out what we’re doing about sustainability – both as a company, and in our work with clients. We call it doing the write thing.

Good words

As copywriters, the biggest impact we can make on sustainability is with our words – helping clients enthuse people about doing good things. For example:

  • we've helped Nokia to encourage customers to recycle their old mobile phones;
  • we've helped Arup to talk about the benefits of sustainable development; and
  • we've helped ActionAid use email to engage with its supporters.

Good deeds

We try to walk the talk too.

A virtual office cuts down on commuting and enables our writers to work flexibly. When we travel to see our clients, we take public transport wherever possible. And we promise never to fly on business.

When our work's done, we find time to support charities. Most recently we wore red (and wrote a haiku or two) for RedR, raising money to support disaster relief.

About us

Small by design

Because Polon is a small studio (run by Matt and Janet), there are no layers of account management – you get to work directly with a writer.
