World Land Trust Trading

Like many charities World Land Trust has a non-charitable trading subsidiary that manages trading activities to generate funds for the Trust’s charitable conservation activities.

World Land Trust Trading Ltd (WLTT) is a trading subsidiary wholly owned by World Land Trust which is the only shareholder in the company.

The Trust’s trading activities include WLT’s carbon offset and tree planting programmes for corporate supporters, and items sold in WLT gallery.

WLT wildlife and landscapes art gallery

Management of WLT gallery is carried out entirely by WLT with assistance of WLT volunteers. The purpose of the gallery is twofold: to use art as a medium to raise awareness of conservation, and to provide a commercial space for artists to sell their work, with the commission coming to WLT. Any profit generated through the gallery’s activities is transferred from WLTT to World Land Trust for reinvestment in conservation work.

Carbon offsets and tree planting for corporate supporters

Management of the Trust’s carbon offset and tree planting programmes for corporate supporters is carried out entirely by WLT, in conjunction with the Trust’s overseas project partners. The sole aim of the programmes is to benefit conservation by protecting and restoring the world’s wilderness areas. WLT does not trade in the offsets produced and any profit generated by these programmes is transferred from WLTT to World Land Trust for reinvestment in conservation work.

Corporate carbon offsets and tree planting are considered to be services and are therefore subject to VAT.
