Our Environment Fund
No business can have a sustainable future without having a sustainable society to work in. That’s why global businesses are engaging with global issues such as climate change. Now One Community - the Community Foundation for Kirklees can make it easy for local business to help sustain local communities and the environment. By contributing to our new environment fund - “Our Environment” - your business can help projects throughout Kirklees, which are engaged in:
- Wildlife habitat creation and protection
- Promoting use of, and access to, the countryside
- Improving the local urban environment
- Reducing waste and pollution
- Living more sustainably in our localities
Anyone can donate. But by making a long-term commitment as part of their corporate social responsibility plans, Charter Members will be able to demonstrate that community responsibility in action. What’s more, their money will go further and achieve more by being pooled, making it possible for businesses to really make a difference.
