Our mission is to conserve and enhance our world sustainably for the long-term benefit of human society.
We aim to do what we can to achieve this in a joined-up way, by promoting sustainable development, enhancing our built environment, and promoting a balanced economy and community development in harmony with protection and enhance our natural systems and biodiversity.
In our first year, we are currently identifying ways that we can most effectively utilise our funds and resources to achieve our objects and increase our funding streams.
We are launching a small grant-funding scheme for nonprofit projects which benefit the public by combining sustainable development and environmental protection.
