Purpose and Commitments
The Heart of England Community Foundation believes that we all have a responsibility to protect the environment for future generations. We all have a responsibility to reduce our environmental impact, especially in reducing carbon emissions, the main driver of climate change.
We recognise the importance no matter how small, of the impact of our activities on the environment and that there is a need to constantly consider ways in which we can conserve energy and minimise waste in all activities that we undertake.
Heart of England Community Foundation actively acknowledges our responsibility in protecting the environment in all areas of our work, from the projects we fund to the campaigns we support, the journeys we make, actions within the office and printing our publications.

- Use local suppliers wherever possible, to not only reduce the environmental impact, but also to support the local communities in the West Midlands and Warwickshire region.
We remain committed to reducing our impact upon the environment in the following ways:
