Being part of the local communities that we serve alongside our recycling partners is an important part of our culture at Severn Trent Green Power.
Through our community partnership work we can…
- Host site tours to show the recycling process – this is a great way of engaging local people in the benefits of recycling
- Provide you with lots of useful materials to support your communications
- Supply you with educational resources
- Support you in producing promotional videos to raise awareness of the benefits of recycling
In addition, we host regular educational visits from schools, colleges, and universities, work directly with local farming groups, plus we hold and attend regular community groups with residents and Parish councils.
We’re part of the Severn Trent Plc family of businesses, where collectively we have several projects that help deliver improvements to the economic, social, and environmental wellbeing of our local communities.
Community Fund - In January 2020 we launched our brand-new Community Fund. We've committed to give away more than £10 million over the next five years to support local community projects in the Severn Trent region, helping to make a real and tangible difference in our communities.
Covid-19 donation - Severn Trent has pledged to donate £1m to support our communities in dealing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. In April 2020, the first £500,000 was quickly donated in emergency response to local charities supporting the most vulnerable. The remaining £500,000 is being used to support charities that have struggled financially to continue their services in a Covid-secure way.
The Great Big Nature Boost - In 2020, Severn Trent launched its Great Big Nature Boost to enhance the biodiversity of 5,000 hectares of land by 2027. Working with more than 70 partner organisations on around 100 projects, projects have ranged from improving water vole habitat through to creation of new hedgerows and woodland.
