Advancement of environmental protection or improvement
Keep Scotland Beautiful and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are two of the well-known organisations we are working with as part of the ScottishPower Foundation 2015 environment projects. Take a look at all of our environment projects below. Looking for a campaign set up before 2015? Browse the ScottishPower Foundation 2014 environment projects page instead.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Scotland
RSPB Scotland is part of the RSPB, the nature conservation charity that exists to tackle the problems that threaten our spectacular natural environment.
Stretching for 53 square miles, Abernethy Forest within the Cairngorms National Park is the biggest single remnant of Caledonian pinewood left in the UK and is well known for providing a safe natural haven to threatened and iconic species.
In 2014 RSPB Scotland built a tree nursery on the reserve with funding from the ScottishPower Foundation. In 2015, funding will assist with the cultivation and planting of many thousands of new tree saplings with the help of trained volunteers.
Keep Scotland Beautiful
Keep Scotland Beautiful campaigns, educates and directly supports communities in Scotland to take local action on national and global environmental concerns affecting their quality of life. It is committed to making Scotland clean and green, today and tomorrow.
It’s Your Neighbourhood is a universally well received initiative, providing learning opportunities and stimulating local action, leading to the protection and enhancement of the environment. Communities turn neglected spaces into community assets, by clearing neglected land of waste and planting up to increase biodiversity and small scale local food production.
Funding will contribute to the programme delivery costs including a national conference and award ceremony.
