Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)
At Learning Pool, we’re passionate about our people and serious about our responsibility to make the world a better place.
Our dedicated ESG team helps to improve the communities we live in, by working in partnership with many different organizations around the world.

At our core, we believe in doing well by doing good and this certification demonstrates our commitment to using our business as a tool for positive social and environmental impact.
ESG Impact Report
Part of upholding our commitment to making a positive difference in the communities in which we live and work, involves being transparent about our progress on material ESG topics. As we continue to grow our business and define what our journey to extraordinary looks like, we’re weaving ESG into the fabric of our business—quantifying the impact of our efforts and communicating them publicly.
Utilizing globally recognized ESG disclosure frameworks, our inaugural ESG report provides a comprehensive and meaningful overview of our ESG performance.
Dedicated ESG team
We take the same approach to our ESG objectives as we take in working with our 1500+ customers – creating a respected and transparent relationship that everyone trusts to do the right thing.
Every year, each of our offices selects a new cause that is close to their hearts and they become the main focus of our ESG efforts for a year. Specifically, we choose charities that have a direct impact on one or more of the team and support them in the only way we can – through the provision of all kinds of support such as volunteering, fundraising or donating our services and products.
We are also committed to supporting an events calendar of regular internal and external programs that are inline with our beliefs.
Dedicated paid voluntary days for our team
Making a difference in our communities has always been part of our culture and all of our team get two paid days a year to volunteer at a charity or non-profit of their choice. We’ve also gone one step further this year, aiming to contribute more than 3,500 volunteer hours in a single day in an effort we’re calling our ‘CSR Poolooza Day’.
Proudly supporting Make-A-Wish Foundation
Make-A-Wish grants wishes for children with critical illnesses in nearly 50 countries on five continents through 39 international affiliates. At Learning Pool, we support this charity through sales of our children’s book, ‘Tall Tales Short Stories’. This book is the result of a global writing competition we created, where children aged between 7-12 years wrote a story about a mythical creature. We then brought this to life with the help our our amazing design team.
One Tree Planted
Joining the ‘Million Trees Planted’ initiative, our partnership with One Tree Planted represents our dedication to more sustainable development. Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change and we have committed to helping plant 10,000 trees in national forests across the US. We also donate the profits of our Net Zero collection to help further fund ‘Million Trees Planted’.
Free modules, forever
Raising awareness for important issues is high on our list of priorities. We’ve made some of our topical modules* available completely free forever, so that individuals and organizations can access important information as and when they need it.
