Project Description

We’re updating Devon Wildlife Trust’s profile!

Check back soon to find out what this great company is doing to help our environment.

Devon Wildlife Trust

Our charity works to 1) Create safe havens in which wildlife can thrive and from which it can spread; 2) Stand up for wildlife under threat and bring back wildlife that’s been lost; 3) Inspire love and care for the natural environment and enable more people to experience, enjoy and understand it; 4) Enrich and enhance our knowledge of wildlife, natural systems and the fundamental benefits it brings to society.

Company Mission Statement

Since 2014 we have operated an Environmental Management System (EMS) to help minimise the adverse environmental impacts of our day-to-day activities and to set continuous business targets to make sure that every year we improve on our performance and meet only the highest goals.

Working greener

Reducing waste: at the start of 2019, only 1%of all DWT waste went to landfill.

Reducing fossil fuel use: by utilising natural resources and renewable energy to serve our buildings wherever possible.

Our headquarters at Cricklepit Mill uses the old mill leat to power a hydro-turbine which provides us with electricity and allows us to export any surplus to the National Grid. In 2015 the turbine provided up to one third of our energy needs.

Reducing water use: we harvest water for flushing toilets which reduces the need for treated and pumped water.

Procurement: since 2015 we have used a procurement policy which ensures we select products which are not associated with any global environmental issues such as Palm Oil, Sustainable Fishing and Deforestation.
