Clarity supports The South Downs Trust by joining the ‘Park Protectors’ scheme

We are thrilled to announce our recent partnership with the South Downs National Park Trust, the official charity for the South Downs National Park. The South Downs Protector scheme presents a remarkable opportunity for organisations like ours to actively contribute to nature recovery and staff volunteering in our local area and beyond.

Through this partnership, we are proud to support the National Park’s ambitious goal of creating 13,000 hectares of new habitat, providing a thriving environment for plants and animals. This area is almost twice the size of Southampton and will be developed under the ReNature initiative, an  incredible  effort to combat biodiversity loss by establishing significant new woodlands, hedgerows, wildflower meadows, and wetlands over the next decade.



As a corporate partner in this scheme, Clarity will not only be making a tangible difference to the environment, but our team will have the opportunity to engage in volunteering days within the stunning landscape of the National Park.

We are committed to uniting the world of business in the protection of the world we live in, and we’re delighted to join this initiative alongside another Brighton-based company. Businesses play a crucial role in securing the future of this cherished landscape. The South Downs National Park has already achieved so much in its 13 years of existence, but there is still more to be done to protect and enhance it for the future.

The significance of this partnership lies not only in its positive impact on biodiversity and climate change but also in demonstrating our dedication to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments. It allows us to build on a meaningful legacy for the environment while actively engaging our colleagues in hands-on conservation work.

As we embark on this journey with the South Downs National Park Trust, we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and the positive change we can bring to this unique and delicate landscape.

James Winkworth, Head of Charity at the South Downs National Park Trust, the official charity for the National Park, said:

“We’re really excited to be launching the Park Protector initiative and are looking for corporate partners right across the UK. Businesses are a ‘force for good’ and vital to the future of this treasured landscape. As Britain’s youngest National Park, we’ve achieved a lot in 13 years, but there’s so much more we can do to make this an even better place and protect it for future generations. The truth is that this is a fragile landscape in the busiest part of the UK and it needs a lot of support. Businesses can make such a significant impact by becoming a Park Protector, helping in the fight against biodiversity loss and climate change, while also demonstrating ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) commitments and creating a meaningful legacy.

“This is also a wonderful opportunity for colleagues to be able to get their hands dirty, and their feet muddy, and get involved in some hands-on conservation work!”


David Honcoop, Executive Chairman of Clarity Environmental and head of the Clarity Cares board of trustees, said:

“We are delighted to be supporting the South Downs National Park Trust and their new Protector scheme. Through Clarity Cares, the caritative extension of our business, we are already involved with national level environmental organisations, so it was therefore very important to us to support a local and ambitious initiative like the Renature scheme.  

“This partnership allows us to not only support the local environment but also actively contribute to the preservation and restoration of the very landscape that surrounds us. We are very proud to support the South Downs National Trust both financially and through volunteering days.”
