We have joined the National Forest as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) partner, confirming our support for the organisation’s work and demonstrating our commitment to the environment.
With a £2,000 donation, our partnership includes the planting of 40 trees in new woodlands being created in the National Forest in the Midlands.
Our support for the National Forest reflects our business mission to help improve lives, protect nature and make the environment around us a better place to live. The donation contributes to our commitment to divert at least 1 per cent of our profits to charitable causes or awareness campaigns.
The National Forest embraces 200 square miles, parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Scarred by centuries of coal mining and heavy industry, over the last 30 years the landscape has been regenerated and transformed and is now that of rolling farmland, ancient forest and new planted woodlands.
With cross-party backing, and supported by Defra, the National Forest is seen as a national exemplar and a success story for multipurpose forestry on a large, landscape scale. A small charity with around 30 staff, the National Forest Company leads the creation of the National Forest, working alongside partners, business, funders and the local community, providing leadership, advice, facilitation, investment and promotion.
Lucy Brooks, Head of Communications at Clarity Environmental, said: “We are very proud to have been accepted as a CSR partner of the National Forest, following their review of our environmental policy, as well as our approach to sustainability.
“We take our environmental responsibilities extremely seriously and we are fully committed to sustainable business principles; always aiming for the most environmentally friendly methods of running our business and committing to a programme of continual improvement. Our partnership confirms our support for the organisation’s vital work to regenerate landscape and provide accessible woodland for generations to come. We look forward to receiving and sharing news on their activities.”
