Celebrating 10th Year of the Nature of Scotland Awards

GreenPower is delighted to be sponsoring the best Community Initiative in this the 10th year the RSPB has organised the Awards. 

Rob Forrest, CEO of GreenPower said: “We believe that nature conservation and renewable energy should go hand-in-hand, especially given the overwhelming threat of climate change posed to all ecosystems across the world, so GreenPower is naturally delighted to continue to support these fantastic and inspirational awards.”

Each year the Awards have attracted entries from across Scotland and the range and imagination behind all the projects is an inspiration to us all to get out there and join others in practical conservation work that will help to safeguard our natural heritage.

The best Community Initiative Award goes to the project that the judges believe has clearly demonstrated how nature has benefitted from their actions.

GreenPower’s Director of Development, George Baxter, who worked for the Scottish Green Party, WWF Scotland and Friends of the Earth Scotland earlier in his career, said: “People and nature have to go together and GreenPower is delighted to help support and recognise the wide range of wonderful and truly inspirational conservation work that communities are doing right across Scotland.”

It is free to enter, so please submit an application or nominate a person, project, group or business that is dedicating time and energy to supporting and protecting nature.
