Environmental and sustainability projects take many forms. Some funders have particular interests and/or fund in very restricted areas. Others are much more generalist.
Note in the discription of each funder we have outlined:
- “Geography” which section indicates the areas of England that a funder is interested in. “National” which indicates that there are no stated restrictions within England. Any stated restrictions are described.
- “Project Types” which describes the kinds of projects that the funder has said they are interested in or that they have funded previously. For simplicity we have divided these into:
Energy – projects that use greener mechanisms to generate electricity or heart (e.g., solar PV panels, biomass boilers, air source heat pumps).
Efficiency – projects that reduce energy consumption (e.g., LED lighting, insulation).
Water – projects that improve water quality or reduce water consumption (e.g., grey water systems) or improve quality of runoff water (e.g., sustainable drainage systems).
Biodiversity – projects that improve biodiversity.
Engagement – projects that focus on environmental awareness and education.
Other – other types of projects, usually detailed in the grant maker’s entry
General – all or most types of environmental projects. Any known exclusions will be detailed in the grant maker’s entry.
