There are multiple ways in which you can the involved in helping improve sustainability issues in the area.
Sign up as a local supporter of our Sustainability and Climate Crisis Strategy
We cannot make the scale of the changes required by ourselves. It is our hope that local businesses, organisations, schools and groups will recognise the scale of the task required and support the goals of our Sustainability Strategy by developing their own priorities and plans to improve the sustainability of their day-to-day activities.
Please show your commitment to doing everything you can in your own organization, by signing up as a local supporter of our Sustainability and Climate Crisis Strategy. We will expect to see a plan of action to show that you are taking steps to address your most significant impacts. Please email us a link to your sustainability strategy so that we can learn about what you are doing to help create the healthy, low carbon and sustainable future we all aspire to.
Your organisation or group will then be listed as an active participant and supporter on our Sustainability and Climate Crisis Strategy webpage. You may be invited to attend our Environmental Forum and Sustainability Meetings where we can network and share best practice.
