The Naturesave Trust has funded environmental conservation since 1995
The Naturesave Trust was set up in 1995, to fund environmental and conservation projects throughout the UK. It obtains 100% of its funds from the premiums generated by Naturesave Insurance, the UK’s leading ethical insurance provider.
Our areas of activity include;
1. Providing Grant Funding
Over many years the Naturesave Trust has provided a wide variety of grants mainly to small grassroots organisations that really make a difference but often struggle to find funding. Currently, the funding categories supported are;
Nature Conservation – Projects that aim to improve outcomes for our native flora and fauna. Grants are provided for projects that protect our precious wildlife, from hedgehogs and swifts to bats and owls. This category also includes rewilding and ecology projects.
Renewable Energy – The Trust has supported many renewable energy projects, particularly in the field of community energy. As renewable energy systems themselves are often beyond the scope of funding it is more common for the trust to support start-up costs and feasibility studies to help ensure these projects go ahead. this includes funding to launch share offers in which the Trust also invests.
Sustainable Communities – from community growing projects to organisations specialising in recycling and repair, this category covers projects that help communities become more sustainable whilst also improving outcomes for those in need.
2. Helping Small Businesses Become Greener
The Naturesave Trust also funds a program of Environmental Performance Reviews which are designed to equip small to medium-sized businesses with the knowledge they require to operate more sustainably. These reviews are offered for at no cost, to Naturesave Insurance business insurance customers. More details can be found here.
3. Tree Planting Program – ‘Buy One Get One Tree’
The final area of funding is a tree planting program in partnership with the conservation charity, Trees For Life. The Trust provides the funding for Naturesave Insurance to plant a tree for every new insurance policy issued. To read more about this conservation work here
