In today's world environmental and business sustainability make good business sense. Engaging in a charitable partnership with Ireland's primary wildlife charity, the Irish Wildlife Trust, will highlight your community and environmental responsibility, strengthen your brand image, enhance its credibility, whilst demonstrating a commitment to conservation principles and actions.
In return, the IWT can aid in improving workplace morale through direct actions such as 'greening' your grounds, visits to our wildlife reserve sites, teaching new skills and raising awareness through direct staff contact, and initiating projects that contribute to increasing workplace pride and employee motivation. Furthermore, the high profile of our organisation can contribute to increased visibility and improve your public charitable image.
Partnership with the IWT provides the opportunity to align with an Irish grass roots environmental charity that actively supports both wildlife and habitats, utilises volunteers to carry out citizen science, raises awareness of major environmental issues, carries out ground work on invasive species and litter clean-ups, raises public awareness and lobbies government and organisations to act responsibly. The IWT is committed to raising awareness of Ireland’s rich natural heritage and protecting it for future generations, together with your organisation, we can achieve these goals.
