Sustainability

Our Sustainability programme

We’re committed to helping local organisations embed sustainability into what they do, work together to improve the local and wider environment and get the message out about it.

We’re working to achieve this through:

  • Identifying sustainability champions within organisations and connecting them through events and a forum 
  • Providing sustainability training and support for champions and decision-makers
  • Working together with other organisations on sustainability initiatives and providing sponsorship opportunities
  • Signposting relevant resources and connecting businesses with sustainability expertise
  • Sharing success stories and examples of best practice

Are you a sustainability champion in your business?

We’re connecting sustainability champions at organisations across the Reading area to help them make an even bigger positive difference. 

Are you passionate about helping to improve your company’s eco credentials? Are you already shaking things up to minimise your business’s impact on the environment? Or are you simply frustrated about issues in your workplace like poor waste management?

If any of these sound like you, you would be welcome to join our growing network of sustainability champions – 80 and counting. You’ll then receive invitations to exclusive events and will be able to connect with fellow champions through our dedicated branch of the Sustaineers forum, for mutual support and inspiration.

Get in touch to sign up and join in. 

Trees for Reading

We want to mobilise Reading-based businesses to help us make our town greener, healthier and happier.

We’re offering local organisations the opportunity to fund the planting and care of trees within the town through our Trees for Reading initiative.

In response to demand, we’re also accepting donations from individuals, so the whole community can contribute.
