MASECO Private Wealth goes plant powered.

Staff here at MASECO are taking part in the Veganuary Workplace Challenge this January when we will be encouraging employees to adopt a vegan diet for the month.

A purely plant-based diet has proven health benefits, including increased energy levels, lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and helps to combat weight gain.

“It’s really important to MASECO that our staff are healthy and enjoying life”, said Josh Matthews, Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “The Veganuary Workplace Challenge ticks so many boxes for us. It involves our staff in a fun challenge that brings them together and gets us all to discuss the benefits of a plant-based diet whilst raising awareness of how reducing our meat consumption can positively impact the environment and the world around us.”

A vegan diet has considerable environmental benefits as eating animals is the largest contributing factor in habitat loss and extinction, with millions of acres of forest felled each year to make way for livestock production.

A 2010 UN report stated that a global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change.

It has been calculated that one person eating a vegan diet for a month will save 124,900 litres of water, 84 square metres of forest and 273 kilogrammes of carbon dioxide emissions.

Henry Findlater, Partner and Senior Wealth Manager added “At the end of the month it’s going to be really interesting to calculate by exactly how much MASECO has decreased its carbon footprint – and how many of our colleagues continue the diet.
