Aggregate Industries announces new partnership with The Wildlife Trusts

  • 30 Aug 2018

Aggregate Industries has announced a new three year partnership with The Wildlife Trusts, which manages thousands of nature reserves and runs marine conservation projects on the UK’s coasts.

The partnership is planning to launch Leadership Awards and a Local Partnership Development Fund, with the objective of enabling innovative on the ground projects between Aggregate Industries’ sites and their local Wildlife Trusts.

Aggregate Industries has pledged a considerable annual budget for projects to support the Local Partnership Development Fund – these focus on wildlife rich towns and cities, healthy soils and water and connecting people to wildlife.

The Leadership Awards, which will showcase strong, strategic, transformational and team leadership in both organisations, will run for three years and are set to be presented at an annual awards ceremony, with prizes for the winning sites and individuals.

Donna Hunt, Head of Sustainability at Aggregate Industries, commented: “Aggregate Industries has proudly worked with The Wildlife Trusts for the past ten years, consistently supporting collective priorities.

“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 which have the ability to make a really positive impact on the environment and the communities that interact with it.”

Janel Fone, Director, The Wildlife Trusts, added: “We believe that everyone has a part to play in bringing about nature’s recovery.

“Our strong partnership with Aggregate Industries has been built up over ten years and we’re delighted to be moving onto the next chapter working together to benefit wildlife, people and communities.”
