Haringey 40:20

Description

Imagine electric cars, state of the art buses and cyclists moving fluidly and quietly along Green Lanes and Muswell Hill Broadway. People walking and cycling to work in Tottenham’s thriving green business sector. The view from Alexandra Palace glistening with solar panels crowning the rooftops, producing clean electricity. Our homes are warm and cosy in winter and our energy bills are lower.

This is the Haringey we can create if we choose to - cleaner, greener and more prosperous.

Haringey 40:20 brings together residents, businesses, social enterprises, charities and community groups across Haringey to create a better future for everyone living and working in the borough. It was inspired by local residents who convinced Haringey Council to adopt an ambitious target to reduce CO2 emissions in the borough by 40% by 2020. We believe that reaching this target is central to creating a fairer, healthier and happier way of life for everyone in Haringey.

We can start creating the future we want to see right now.

Description

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is Scotland’s environmental regulator. Our main role is to protect and improve the environment. We do this by being an excellent environmental regulator, helping business and industry to understand their environmental responsibilities, enabling customers to comply with legislation and good practice and to realise the many economic benefits of good environmental practice. We protect communities by regulating activities that can cause harmful pollution and by monitoring the quality of Scotland's air, land and water. The regulations we implement also cover the keeping and use, and the accumulation and disposal, of radioactive substances.

SEPA is a non-departmental public body, accountable through Scottish Ministers to the Scottish Parliament. SEPA has been advising Scottish ministers, regulated businesses, industry and the public on environmental best practice for over a decade.

We protect the environment and human health through the work of our 1,300 employees who cover a range of specialist areas including chemistry, ecology, environmental regulation, hydrology, engineering, quality control, planning, communications, business support and management functions. Our 22 offices enable us to work across the whole of Scotland from the Highlands and Islands to the Borders and our corporate office is in Stirling.

CDP

Description

CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information.

CDP works to transform the way the world does business to prevent dangerous climate change and protect our natural resources. We see a world where capital is efficiently allocated to create long-term prosperity rather than short-term gain at the expense of our environment.

Evidence and insight is vital to driving real change. We use the power of measurement and information disclosure to improve the management of environmental risk. By leveraging market forces including shareholders, customers and governments, CDP has incentivized thousands of companies and cities across the world’s largest economies to measure and disclose their environmental information. We put this information at the heart of business, investment and policy decision making.

We hold the largest collection globally of self reported climate change, water and forest-risk data. Through our global system companies, investors and cities are better able to mitigate risk, capitalize on opportunities and make investment decisions that drive action towards a more sustainable world.

Formed in 2004, Climate Outreach (formerly COIN) has always been innovative; and much of our pioneering work has subsequently been taken up by the wider climate change movement. Since then we have become known for our series of training events which we have delivered to groups as varied as district councils and women's institutes. We have recently been selected to manage the well-established Carbon Conversations project which, in a non-threatening but challenging way, guides people towards reducing their carbon footprints. Our other two main current projects are

Language and discourse
We are forging a positive and progressive discourse on climate change. A more optimistic and confident understanding will encourage and enable more action.

Defending Rights
This project seeks to build a platform for civil society engagement on environmental migration. At present there are significant gaps in the legal and policy frameworks to protect those at risk of displacement linked to climate change. Climate Outreach has successfully brought together into the UK Climate Change Migration Forum disparate groups from across the human rights, development, humanitarian and environmental sectors.

The London Climate Change Partnership, LCCP, is the centre for expertise on climate change adaptation and resilience to extreme weather in London.

We are driving forward awareness and action on climate change so that London is able to remain a great place to live, work, visit and do business.

London is a world centre for finance, transport, politics and culture. The capital is a great city to do business and invest in because it has the vitality, skills, quality of life and infrastructure. However, many of the factors that attract and retain business and investment are vulnerable to our current and future climate.

LCCP is comprised of public, private and community sector organisations that have a role to play in preparing London for extreme weather today and climate change in the future.

Size of Wales

Description

Size of Wales is a unique Welsh initiative that is protecting and sustaining an area of rainforest the size of Wales as part of our national response to climate change.

The Cardiff-based charity supports tropical forests in Latin America and Africa.

Having reached its initial target of raising £2 million in 2013, this small but ambitious team is continuing to work with schools, businesses and community groups to sustain these forests and help some of the poorest people in the world.

The charity has a match fund, meaning every penny donated to its forest projects will be doubled for nothing, brill!

Wales, part of the solution not a measure of the problem.

International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance (ICROA)

Description

The International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA) is an international non-profit alliance of businesses providing carbon reduction and offset services. ICROA members operate across Europe, North American and Australia and are managed by an independent secretariat operated within the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) - see www.ieta.org

The primary aim of ICROA is to promote best practices in carbon management and offsetting. ICROA keeps abreast of the latest developments within carbon management and the carbon markets to ensure its members adhere to the best possible practices in the industry.

ICROA provides consumer protection for parties wishing to voluntarily manage and offset their carbon emissions by ensuring its member companies follow and publically report against the ICROA Code of Best Practice, which provides specific requirements for the manner in which ICROA members provide their carbon footprinting, greenhouse gas reduction advice and offset services. ICROA members are 3rd party audited to assure the quality of their services.

ICROA also engages with Governments and other key stakeholders on issues related to the voluntary carbon market.

The Gold Standard Foundation

Description

The Gold Standard is an award winning certification standard for carbon mitigation projects and is recognised internationally as the benchmark for quality and rigour in both the compliance and voluntary carbon markets. We certify renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management and land use & forest carbon offset projects to ensure that they all demonstrate greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions and sustainable development benefits in local communities that are measured, reported and verified.

Established in 2003 by WWF, The Gold Standard is the only certification standard trusted and endorsed by more than 85 NGOs worldwide, including Care International, World Vision Australia, Forum for the Future and Mercy Corps. It is also the standard of choice for multiple governments and multinationals such as H&M, DHL, Swiss Post, Nokia, Virgin Atlantic, Panasonic, TUI Travel and FIFA. United Nations agencies use The Gold Standard for the development of their own carbon mitigation and sustainable development projects.

Gold Standard projects must adhere to a stringent and transparent set of criteria developed by the Secretariat, overseen by an independent Technical Advisory Committee and verified by UN accredited independent auditors. The certification process uniquely requires the involvement of local stakeholders and NGOs.

Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP)

Description

The earth’s climate is changing and will continue to change for decades regardless of greenhouse gas emissions controls. Across the world, response is typically divided into two interlinked components: mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation describes the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimise the changes ahead. Adaptation, on the other hand, is used to describe the fact that further climate change is inevitable and mankind would do well to prepare now for the climate of the future.

Adaptation in its broadest sense is the primary focus of GCAP because in practice most organisations (both public and private) need support to implement appropriate adaptation solutions to minimise the negative impacts of adverse impacts of changing climate.

Our mission is "to passionately provide our clients with expert insight into the effects of climate change on their citizens, on their environments, and on their businesses; and to assist our clients in taking proactive steps to develop sustainable and best-value adaptation solutions to their unique climate change challenges."

Riverside Animal Centre

Description

The Riverside Animal Centre is a registered charity working across the borders of South London and Surrey to provide care and assistance to thousands of wild and pet animals every year.

The centre has its origins in a small family home, where its founder, Ted Burden, first cared for a handful of injured birds and other animals in a bedroom and a shed, back in the mid-nineties. Today, Ted leads a team of committed volunteers and dedicated professional staff, all of whom work tirelessly to care for the growing number of animals that desperately need help. This can easily exceed 2000 wildlife casualties as well as over 500 cats and dogs every year.

Tiggywinkles, The Wildlife Hospital Trust

Description

Tiggywinkles, The Wildlife Hospital Trust, is a specialist hospital based in Buckinghamshire. Using every available veterinary welfare skill, we are dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating all species of British wildlife. We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to take in sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

All British wild animal casualties brought to the hospital are treated completely free of charge to members of the public and are released through a controlled programme, back to the wild, when they are fully fit.

We also have an Educational Visitor Centre on site. The Visitor Centre is designed principally to provide education and information on our specialist work. Through the use of interpretation boards, leaflets and videos, visitors can learn about the history of the Hospital, the type of animals we treat and some of the innovative techniques we employ. We have also recently opened a Red Kite Information and Education Centre for people to learn more about these majestic birds.

This sanctuary gives the animals that cannot be returned to the wild a chance to live a near natural, but protected life.

Cat Survival Trust (CST)

Description

The Cat Survival Trust's original purpose was to promote the conservation of wild cats by breeding them in captivity and subsequently releasing them into suitable wild situations. Later it was realised that this was not the best way to go about conserving the animals; suitable wild habitat already had a population of cats and the habitat itself was disappearing with alarming rapidity. It also costs about £40,000 to release one cat into the wild and even then there is only a 15% chance that it will survive to breed. The Trust now concentrates on conserving the entire habitat where cats live. This is not only more cost-effective but involves the conservation of all the plants, animals and fungi that make up the ecosystem on which the cats depend.

Cool Earth

Description

Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.

We know that saving the rainforest isn’t a new idea. Managing to do it is.

Over the last 40 years, half the world’s rainforests have been destroyed. That’s why Cool Earth decided to go about things differently.

We don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put indigenous people back in control of the world’s most endangered rainforest.

These people have lived in the forest for countless generations. Their homes are now on the frontline of deforestation. They have the most to lose from deforestation.

By building better incomes, better schools and better clinics, we give our partner villages the resources they need to keep their forest intact.

Cool Earth is now working alongside 65 rainforest villages throughout the world. These partner villages are protecting over 480,000 acres of forest that lie directly in the path of chainsaws and bulldozers.

The clever part is that this forest is forming a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.

FERN

Description

The world's forests are under pressure. Tropical forests are disappearing fast due to logging and mining, hydropower and the hunger for land. The last temperate and Northern old growth forests are being destroyed by the timber and paper industries. The livelihood of forest peoples is being undermined and every year thousands of plant and animal species disappear. Many organisations campaign to save the world's forests and support the struggles of forest peoples. International co-ordination of these activities is important. FERN was created in 1995 to keep track of the EU's involvement in forests and co-ordinate NGO activities at the European level.

FERN aims to achieve environmental and social justice, focusing on forests and forest peoples’ rights in the policies and practices of the European Union. The main campaign areas are: Forest Governance, European Forests, Forests and Climate, Trade and Investment and Carbon Trading.

FERN has no director and strives to make decisions by consensus. This drives its way of working which is to open rather than occupy space for dialogue on the issues that affect forests and the environment. FERN has staffed offices in Brussels, Belgium, Moreton-in-Marsh, UK and an administrative office in Leiden, the Netherlands.

Project Maya

Description

Project Maya is an environmental community interest company established by conservation scientists to build a global network of permaculture nature reserves. 'Maya Reserves' are a radically different approach to nature reserves, as they are a holistic place for both people and nature to be together in harmony.

The concept is based on permaculture and on extensive research into conservation and what works. We run a number of support projects to help us achieve this goal. We run campaigns with an urban biodiversity focus, and our 'Maya Academy' training is centred around permaculture, knowledge exchange and using social media to achieve sustainability. To build up the capital we need to buy reserves, we launched a super wildflower gardening product – Seedball.

Wildscreen

Description

Wildscreen is an award-winning wildlife conservation charity that shares awe-inspiring images of all life on Earth to empower conservation around the world.

When strong storytelling and captivating imagery are united to portray the planet, we believe that people are moved to take action to protect it.

The natural world is amazing, but when it’s not seen it’s not loved, and when it’s not loved it’s not valued or protected.

That’s why, through our three initiatives, we inspire photographers and filmmakers to take the most vital images, why we use images to inspire the next generation of conservationists online and in their communities, and why we provide images to arm conservation organisations around the world - so their all-important stories have the best chance of being seen and heard.

The Friends of the Parkland Walk

Description

The Parkland Walk is a nature reserve that follows the route of an abandoned railway line. It has two sections: between Finsbury Park and Highgate Station and between Highgate Wood and Muswell Hill. The aim of the Friends is to conserve the varied habitats of this valuable urban green space and to achieve a balance between its often competing roles as a nature reserve, linear park, footpath and as a route used by many cyclists. We also sponsor guided walks and wish to develop its educational value and help people appreciate its worth.

Nailsea Environment & Wildlife Trust (NEWT)

Description

The Nailsea Environment & Wildlife Trust (NEWT) has now acquired six acres of land at Moorend Spout, with major financial support from the Landfill Communities Fund and with additional funds from North Somerset Council and Nailsea Town Council.

The site incorporates a part of the Tickenham and Nailsea Moors Site of Special Scientific Interest, designated on account of the unusual plants and animals to be found in the rhynes. The cluster of Alder and Willow trees has a small spring-fed pond. We have installed a board walk and a new hedge line to the east of the site, and we have recently planted a Black Poplar to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. We have created four new small ponds to the west of the site, which will be in addition to the five larger ponds planned to occupy up to 500 sq metres to the east. NEWT will invite local people to volunteer in the management of this site, which should give good social and physical activities for all age groups. Its proximity to Tickenham and Nailsea gives opportunities to walkers to easily visit the site.

The Angus Rural and Environment Partnership will be responsible for the management and monitoring of the following outcomes contained within the Angus Community Planning Partnership's Single Outcome Agreement for 2009/12:

  • Outcome 10: We live in well-designed, sustainable places where we are able to access the amenities and services we need
  • Outcome 12: We value & enjoy our natural environment & protect & enhance it for future generations
  • Outcome 14: We reduce the local & global environmental impact of our consumption & production.

The partnership will ensure that appropriate indicators and targets are agreed to support the delivery of the outcomes. Progress reports will be produced every six months and presented to the ACPP in January and June of each year.

The partnership will develop a delivery plan against each of the outcomes with specific actions identified for each of the partner agencies. A highlight report on progress against these actions will be produced every six months and presented to the ACPP in January and June of each year.

The partnership will ensure that indicators, targets and actions "below the waterline" demonstrate clear accountability to individual agencies and/or departments. Officers of the partnership will ensure appropriate links are made to relevant strategies and/or plans. Linkages to the national outcomes will be clearly defined.

An analysis of the data should be undertaken at least once per year and inter-dependencies between outcomes of the other thematic groups will be considered in reports to the ACPP Implementation Group on a regular basis.

Cambrian Wildwood

Description

Cambrian Wildwood is a project to restore the wildwood to a large area of the Cambrian Mountains in Wales. It involves the full ecological restoration of several hundred acres of land, increasing to several thousand acres in the long term. Habitat restoration of native woodland and other natural areas will be followed up with reintroduction of native animals to create a complete functioning natural ecosystem.

The project has not yet started on the ground, as it depends on purchasing land. We are currently raising the money for this by inviting people to become Wildwood Founders, which you can do by going on our website. Once the project starts on the ground, the Wildwood area will be fully accessible to the public free of charge, so that people can enjoy the area on foot, or bicycle or horseback, camping in the wild, and pursuing adventure activities. There will be opportunities to join in with the restoration work including tree planting by joining volunteer activities.

Coed Cymru

Description

Four clear roles have emerged for Coed Cymru: to be a a provider of free and impartial help, advice and training; to promote co-operation between woodland owners, woodland contractors and timber users; to develop hardwood timber products and markets to ensure that broadleaf woodlands have a firm economic base which will ensure their continued management; and to be an advocate for broadleaf woodland in Wales and to act as a catalyst to bring about environmental, economic and social benefits through sustainable woodland management.

Coed Cymru has also taken an active role in developing new products from Welsh softwood timber including an innovative timber building system called Ty Unnos which produces high standards of energy efficiency from local products.

Wildlife Trusts Wales

Description

Wildlife Trusts Wales works in partnership with the six local Wildlife Trusts in Wales: North Wales, Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, Brecknock, Gwent, and South and West Wales.

To achieve this it is vital that the richest wildlife sites are protected and sustained as a starting point from which nature can spread back into our wider landscapes. And at sea we must also protect areas now for a future when our marine wildlife can thrive more widely.

Society needs this as much as our wildlife does. A healthy natural environment is the foundation for everything that is of value to people – food, water, shelter, flood prevention, health, happiness and creative inspiration. It’s the source of our prosperity and our wellbeing. We want to inspire people about the natural world so that they value it, understand their relationship with it and take action to protect and restore it.

Our network of local Wildlife Trusts is the largest voluntary organisation in Wales dedicated to protecting wildlife and wild places. Together we manage 216 nature reserves covering more than 8,000 hectares, and we are supported by 25,000 members.

Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

Description

The 'Friends' were formed in 1990. Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is truly the historic green heart of Tower Hamlets. 33 acres of Broad leaf woodland in a disused 19th century cemetery, surrounded by tower blocks and estates, where 1000s of people live. The Cemetery Park has an outstanding variety of wild plants and animals as well as plants which give clues to its history. The Cemetery Park is designated as a Local Nature Reserve and is now managed as a place for wildlife, education and people.

As a closed cemetery and one of the Victorian 'Magnificent Seven' it contains a wealth of beautiful, ornately carved monuments in sandstone, granite, and even Italian white marble with fascinating stories of the lives of those interred.

In the Spring, the park bursts into life all around the monuments with bulbs already in full bloom and the new season's wildflowers beginning to emerge. Pollinating insects, territorial bird song and woodpeckers drumming can be heard in the crescendoing seasonal symphony.

In Autumn, as the growing and breeding season comes to a close the monuments become the dominant feature once again as the vegetation dies back and the leaves fall from the trees. Winter is the best time to get in amongst the graves to find a relative or to marvel at the skill of the stonemasons of a lost century. There are marvels to be seen at any time of year.

Global Action Plan was created in 1993 as a different kind of environmental organisation, focusing on people and how they can take practical action in their everyday lives for a better world. It was a simple idea with big implications. Offices have opened around the world to take up the challenge, and so create the climate for change. In the UK, it has helped thousands of people and organisations to make substantial environmental and financial savings.

Rural Environmental Action Project (REAP)

Description

REAP promotes sustainable development by supporting local enterprise, environmental action, and supporting communities to identify their own needs and build the capacity to meet them. Broadly speaking REAP’s three core activities are:

  • Promoting and supporting equitable economic solutions
  • Promoting community cohesion to ensure a capacity to meet identified needs
  • Raising environmental awareness and promoting action to enhance our shared environment.

REAP sees the economic aspect of sustainable development as supporting and investing in local social enterprises. A cornerstone of REAP’s work is to support and encourage local community groups to identify needs, gain funding, plan training and independently manage their own project. REAP has the capacity to engage with small and large organisations alike but is particularly keen to support those which have an environmental challenge ahead.

The environmental aspects of sustainable development, particularly carbon reduction, are also key. REAP uses different ways of engaging with the community at all levels to get home the environmental message, including the use of a thermal imaging camera, school based education and activities, and energy advice sessions. In recent years REAP has enjoyed a constructive relationship with the Climate Challenge Fund to make the broadcast of the environmental message possible.

Zilch UK

Description

Zilch, standing for Zero Instances of Litter Can Happen, is the national network of individuals in the UK working to eliminate littering.

The organisation exists to agitate and motivate each other and those in positions of power and influence to do more to bring about a change in behaviour that will reduce the financial and environmental costs of individuals inappropriately discarding the by products of their activities.

Our remit includes tackling everything from gum-spits to fly-tips and balloon releases.

Wherever possible we aim to bring innovative and evidence-based approaches to the problem to the table; whether that be in the area of improved disposal solutions, anti-littering messages or more efficient litter clearing procedures.

Our strategy is to be people powered, internet enabled, overhead free and action-based with the view that when lots of people do a little there's a much that can be achieved.

Barefoot College is a non-governmental organization that has been providing basic services and solutions to problems in rural communities for more than 40 years, with the objective of making them self-sufficient and sustainable.

These ‘Barefoot solutions’ can be broadly categorized into the delivery of Solar Electrification, Clean Water, Education, Livelihood Development, and Activism. With a geographic focus on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), we believe strongly in empowering women as agents of sustainable change.

These women come from rural, non-electrified communities from 64 Least Developed Countries to train in India for six months to become Women Barefoot Solar Engineers.
