Whatever your size and remit, Sussex-based organisations can take part in their Local Nature Recovery Strategy, and add their views to those of residents, community groups, local authorities, decision-makers and landowners.

 

Why take part 

 

The two Local Nature Recovery Strategies for Sussex will direct future effort and funding where they will have most benefit for nature and wider envrionmental benefits. The latter includes benefits such as carbon capture, urban cooling, flood reduction, in addition to economic benefits through increased tourism, fishing or forestry etc. and improved health and wellbeing. 

 

LNRS can also help create local opportunities for Sussex businesses to achieve their environment and social governance (ESG) objectives.

 

The environment is increasinly important to people: 

  • 75% of adults in Great Britain worry about climate change (ONS, 2021)
  • 71% of job seekers want to work for environmentally friendly employers (Future Business, 2022)
  • 82% of consumers want brands to practice sustainability (Forbes 2022)

 

Benefits of participation for businesses include:

 

  • Using Local Nature Recovery Strategies to identify local opportunities to meet corporate sustainability goals, such as working with local landowners to obtain carbon or biodiversity credits.
  • Identifing opportunities for increasing/ promoting tourism.
  • Partnering with local NGOs or landowners to provide corporate support to deliver actions for nature the strategy identifies, for example through funding or corporate volunteer days.
  • Facilitating the creation and/or running of local partnerships.
