Aggregate Industries will partner with The Wildlife Trusts, managers of thousands of nature reserves and marine conservation projects across the UK coastline, to enable innovative projects between industrial sites and their local Wildlife Trusts.
Together, they plan to launch Leadership Awards, celebrating strong strategic, transformational and team leadership in both Aggregate Industries and The Wildlife Trusts. These awards will be presented annually, with prizes for the winning sites and individuals, and will run for three years. In addition, the organisations are planning a Local Partnership Development Fund. Aggregate Industries has committed to an annual budget for projects, which focus on wildlife rich towns and cities, healthy soils and water, and connecting people with wildlife.
“Aggregate Industries has proudly worked with The Wildlife Trusts for the past ten years, consistently supporting collective priorities,” said Donna Hunt, Head of Sustainability at Aggregate Industries. “For the next three years, the focus will shift to our new shared vision – a sustainable construction industry which supports more wildlife and habitats, and encourages more people to connect with nature. Working so closely together will enable us to truly support worthwhile projects”.
“We believe that everyone has a part to play in bringing about nature’s recovery,” said Janel Fone, Director of The Wildlife Trusts. “Our strong partnership with Aggregate Industries has been built up over ten years, and we’re delighted to be moving on to the next chapter, working together to benefit wildlife, people, and communities.”
