Corporate supporters: How your company can save habitats and wildlife

World Land Trust (WLT) has a growing number of corporate supporters representing a wide range of different businesses and activities, the majority based in the UK but some overseas.

WLT is pleased to accept donations from companies who are able to demonstrate a commitment to the environment as corporate support provides a significant income for WLT’s land purchase and protection projects.

How to become a Corporate Supporter of World Land Trust

Donation amount

There is no fixed sponsorship fee required but WLT would wish to ensure that the amount being donated was appropriate to the size of the company and matched the level of support being promoted by that company. £1,000 is generally the minimum sponsorship pledge over a 12 month period.

WLT Logo use

Where the WLT logo is requested we do normally have a minimum donation requirement of £5,000 over the first 12 months of the partnership. There are some terms and conditions associated with the use of the WLT name and its logo and an agreement would be drawn up based on what the company is offering and what WLT will do with the funds.

Contact the WLT

If your company is interested in joining with our existing corporate supporters to help raise funds to save critically threatened land we will be pleased to discuss this with you by phone or email.

How companies can support the WLT’s work 

When entering into an agreement with a company partner WLT will discuss the use of the funds being donated and a company can:

Goodlife Foods

Goodlife Foods support the WLT through their meat-free solutions range.

  • make a donation to the WLT and let the Trustees decide how they are most urgently needed,
  • save acres with the WLT by choosing to support Buy an Acre projects,
  • support Special Appeals to save strategically important parcels of land (usually between other protected areas) where land costs more than £100 an acre,
  • support a ranger through the Keepers of the Wild programme,
  • help us restore a whole forest: Plant a Tree programme, just £5 a tree.
  • support the Wildlife Webcams in the Forest, streaming live from the rainforest in Brazil and Ecuador.  You could also support future webcams as they are developed.
  • Many companies offer pro bono support and others are able to provide equipment and clothing for use by our partners in the field.

How will WLT publicise your company's support?

WLT cannot carry out marketing on behalf of corporate supporters but will recognise their contributions in line with the Trust's communications policy, which may include:

 

No to ‘greenwash’

While it is common to see claims of ‘company greenwash’ in the press, this is not what WLT experiences. The companies who come to us offering support want to tell us what they are doing to help the environment and it is extremely rare to be contacted by a company who simply want to use our logo to give their product a ‘good image’. Most company representatives are keen to learn how they can address their corporate social responsibility through WLT and the ones that WLT works with are all demonstrating ‘best practice’ in their particular field, otherwise we would not be partnering with them.
