Groundwork is a national charity that has been working for over 35 years to enhance the natural environment and showcase how greener places can improve the lives of local communities, therefore it comes as no surprise that we fully commend and celebrate HRH The Prince of Wales’ recently published Terra Carta for business charter.
Every day Groundwork’s Sustainable Business Consultants support businesses to tackle the challenges, and drive forward opportunities presented by the ambitious agenda outlined in this newly published charter.
However, we remain realistic about the huge challenge that remains in order to put Nature, People and Planet at the heart of global value creation.
As a charity, Groundwork is passionate about creating a future where every neighbourhood is vibrant and green, every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and where no-one is held back by their background or circumstances.
As the business arm of the charity, Groundwork’s Sustainable Business Consultants are committed to supporting businesses to embrace the sustainability agenda, encompassing not just the environment but the vital links into our communities too. As a national federation of charities, we are well placed to do this, with local trusts working in the heart of their communities.
We believe Terra Carta sets out a bold and timely agenda for change. This agenda needs to be embraced across the entire private sector and backed up by rapid action. This action will have to create meaningful and sustained change in how businesses operate, significantly mitigating their impacts upon climate change and destruction of the natural environment whilst creating a planet that sustains nature and people.
To understand how your business can respond to the challenge set out by the Terra Charter and deliver a sustainable response that benefits shareholders, employees and wider stakeholders – reach out to Groundwork today.
Together, we can Change Places and Change Lives.
