Corporate social responsibility

Corporate social responsibility

"Our environmental community work has given us the edge in this sector." - John, company director working with The Mersey Forest

 

Working with The Mersey Forest on a corporate social responsibility project could provide numerous benefits for your business.

 

Giving back to the community where your business operates can improve the standing of your business, attract new custom, and generate positive news coverage. It can also increase staff morale and improve employee retention rates.

 

Your partnership with the Forest could also help to improve the natural environment where your business is based, improving investor confidence and boosting the local economy.

 

Projects

The Mersey Forest team has worked in partnership with the business community for over 20 years. Our collaboration with businesses has contributed to the planting of 9 million trees in Merseyside and North Cheshire.

 

There are dozens of exciting projects which your business could help to make a reality, from street tree planting programmes to community orchards.

Sponsorship

The Mersey Forest has years of experience in building creative, mutually beneficial partnerships with the private sector. We will work with you to create a customised sponsorship opportunity, tailored to achieve your specific CSR and business objectives.

 

There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities which your business could get involved in, including:

 

  • Creating a woodland named after your business. We will work with you at every stage of the process, from planning, to tree planting, to community engagement, to publicising your new woodland.

  • Sponsoring a Forest School in your community. Help children to learn about the natural world, build confidence, and learn new skills through a practical Forest School programme. Learn more about Forest School in The Mersey Forest.

  • Helping us to turn grey streets into green streets. By sponsoring one of our Green Streets street-tree planting programmes, you can help to bring about long-term landscape change in our neighbourhoods. Read more about our Green Streets programme.
