Supporting our communities

Having a positive long-term effect on the economy, landscape, people and quality of life in the region.

We are an essential part of the community we serve, and we support our region in a wide variety of ways. As a major employer and key infrastructure provider, we know our actions affect the communities we serve. We play a critical role in the region, and our vision is to sustainably improve our services while benefiting the communities we serve and the people we employ.

As well as working alongside conservational charities, councils and landowners we also provide community support through our sponsorship and donation programme.

Our community sponsorship and donations are a key part of our business plan. We use the Business in the Community (BiTC) framework to ensure we meet core business activities with identified community and social needs.

Below shows a few aspects of our Community Investment Programme.
