Good Woods has been nominated in the Best Business/NGO Partnership category at The 5th Annual Responsible Business Awards.
This award goes to the best sustainability/corporate responsibility partnership between a company and other entities (i.e. NGOs, governmental body, charity or other non-profit organizations). The winner will have shown clear commitment to a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership that can demonstrate real social/environmental/governance gains for society.
Good Woods is a partnership between B&Q’s One Planet Home, BioRegional and the Sylva Foundation. In its inaugural year Good Woods provided professional forestry advice and support for 235 woodlands across the South East and East of England.
To deliver this professional forestry support to woodlands owners and managers the partnership developed a network which included: local forestry professionals, woodland management charities, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, environmental charities and Wildlife Trusts. Additionally Good Woods worked closely with Forestry Commission England, which provided general support and technical guidance.
This welcome news comes as Good Woods is preparing to start a further phase elsewhere in Britain. Details of this phase of Good Woods will follow in coming weeks.
This Responsible Business Excellence Celebration is organised by the Ethical Corporation and is to be held on September 29th 2014 in London. Read more
