For the current five year period, we're commiting to improving at least 81 hectares of land for biodiversity. The schemes in place help us to achieve this goal, spanning across our business from waste, water, property and catchment solutions. We're also committed to maintaining the current ‘favourable’ status of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) land in our ownership and making sure that what we do doesn't negatively impact any of these SSSIs in our region.
We've got 21 rangers who manage our 12 public access sites working alongside volunteers and organisations like the RSPB and Wildlife Trust. Our sites provide the opportunity for you to visit these places of beauty, as well as enhancing and protecting them for nationally and internationally important species like butterflies, water voles and tree sparrows and many more.
