UK Community Projects

CSR projects in your region of the UK

Our UK portfolio enables you to support local sustainability projects, in the regions where you / your stakeholders are. All the projects can be readily visited, providing the ultimate in transparency.

Projects complement your own sustainability and outreach programmes – promoting (variously) energy saving, education, biodiversity and conservation, whether your need is for compliance, trade industry standards or for your own company sustainability & community engagement objectives.

All projects share a common criterion – they are only made possible with your sponsorship

They can also be paired with verified carbon credits to meet formal carbon offset / neutrality requirements


UK TREE PLANTING

2015_5_bob_plants_wide.jpgThis project coordinates planting of native British broad-leaved trees in your region of the UK. Planting trees provides broad environmental benefits, helping provide wildlife habitat for many hundreds of years, and passing on to future generations a fascinating and highly valuable ecological heritage.

A large proportion of the trees are planted in school grounds, where they help to educate and raise awareness among pupils.

Key Benefits

The project is contributing to sustainable development:

  • Planting is coordinated within 12 mainland UK and Northern Ireland locations. You can select as many or as few of these locations for your plantings
  • Reduces carbon emissions 
  • Provides wildlife habitats
  • Enhances the natural UK landscape
  • Tree planting is fully ‘additional’ – i.e. it would not have happened without your sponsorship
  • Educates children about the importance of the environment and conservation
  • For larger tree orders (e.g. >100 trees), Tree Planting Events can be arranged for you and your teams and/or clients to participate
  • Good local PR opportunities

SOLAR SCHOOLS

solar_community.jpgThis project coordinates Solar PV installations into schools within the UK. Many UK State schools and community buildings make ideal candidates for Solar PV renewable energy use – having ideal roofs and with a need for high energy consumption during hours of sunlight. Energy savings equate to cost savings for schools that can be put to academic use. Our programme supports installations of systems including 4kW, 8kW and 10kW power. We find worthy candidate sites for you, manage the full installation (including assisting wth Feed In Tariff applications where applicable).

Key Benefits

The project is contributing to sustainable development:
  • Installations can be made across mainland UK and Northern Ireland locations for State schools and community buildings, which otherwise could not afford them.
  • Reduces carbon emissions and reliance on fossil fuels
  • Provides visible demonstration to children about the importance of sustainable energy
  • Good local PR opportunities
