BGL supports 630 acres of UK woodland
The Group is partnering with the Woodland Trust on its latest charity project.
Lockdown has given many of us a new appreciation for nature and green spaces, which is one of the reasons BGL Group is supporting local woodlands in a new charitable initiative.
The Group is partnering with the Woodland Trust to help look after 630 acres of woodland and fund the planting of trees in Peterborough and beyond.
BGL’s support will help maintain paths at Stanground Wood to ensure they are accessible and safe for visitors, managing nettles and clearing litter. It will also ensure Orton Longueville Wood – home to endangered great crested newts – is kept litter free all year round.
BGL is also sponsoring two acres of woodland in Normanton le Heath, Leicestershire, as well as helping support the management of hundreds of acres of woodland close to its offices in London, Wakefield and Sunderland. In France, its price comparison business, lesfurets.com, is partnering with the l’Office National des Forets which manages nearly 11 million hectares of public forests across the Channel.
Earlier this year, the Group was awarded an Investors in the Environment Green Award – the highest level of accreditation – for demonstrating its commitment to protecting the environment.
Caroline Raines, Director of Communications at BGL, said: “During lockdown, I think many of us appreciated our woodlands, parks and open spaces more than ever. By partnering with the Woodland Trust to look after dedicated areas of woodland close to our sites, we will do our bit to plant trees and ensure our green spaces are safe and clean for years to come, while continuing our commitment to the environment and to being a greener and more sustainable business.”
