Valued Partners event, 2011
Partnerships are vital to achieving the scale of change required to help people live more sustainable lifestyles.
We partner with businesses that can help us extend our reach across all your stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, and into your local community.
Cross-sector collaboration draws upon the tried and tested expertise of both parties. Working together also offers scope for innovation and allows each partner to break new ground.
A partnership with us has multiple benefits for business. We help improve your organisation's sustainability credentials, and ensure that your corporate responsibility activities are making an impact with your staff and in communities.
Additionally, a partnership offers opportunities for:
- Employee engagement in sustainability and volunteering opportunities
- Motivation and team building
- Raising profile by winning awards. Read more about awards we've won.
Partnering with us
We have a clear track record in delivering valuable social return on investment. We can partner with you to reach a particular audience, as we did with Bank of America to create Greenprint 2020. Or we can tackle an issue as we did with WWF and Sky to create the Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge.
Our work with partners from the public and private sector allows us to grow what we do, connecting people and inspiring them into action. We work with ambitious organisations that are committed to reducing their environmental impact, and who are looking for long-lasting, inclusive and creative solutions.
Past and present partnerships
E.ON. We trained and supported E.ON's Environmental Champions to run an action campaign in their office and to help students run energy-saving projects in schools. Read more about our work with E.ON.
Sky. In our three year partnership with Sky, 387 employees trained to volunteer in our Evergreen programme. 3,000 schools registered for Appetite for Action and 680 schools are taking part in our Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge.
Bank of America Merrill Lynch provided funding for our youth work. Together, with 4,000 young volunteers, we created a vision of a sustainable future, Greenprint 2020, and we are working to achieve that vision.
What makes a partnership work?
We've learned a lot along the way as we've partnered with businesses like Sky, one of our largest and longest partnerships. Find out what we've learned in Valued Partners, our prenup for corporate-charity partnerships.
