Headquartered in the south west, and distributing to over 50 countries worldwide, Golledge is the UK’s leading supplier of frequency control products, and is a long term supporter of the Trust’s work across the county - in particular its grassland restoration programmes which help reverse the decline of pollinators and wider insect populations.
The company take their corporate responsibility to the local community and the natural environment very seriously, and has put in place a wide range of environmental initiatives, including carbon offsets schemes, as means of making a substantial contribution to reducing its carbon footprint as a business, and is committed to promoting environmental good practices to its staff and the wider community.
The partnership will continue to provide opportunities for Golledge staff to volunteer on the Trust’s reserves (according to the Government’s social distancing guideline) and to be involved with other initiatives that champion the natural environment in communities close to Golledge’s site.
Kirby Everett, Head of Communications at Somerset Wildlife Trust comments, “Given where we were pre-lockdown in terms of ensuring that the natural environment was at the top of the political agenda, it’s absolutely vital that we don’t let the pandemic dampen the flames of ambition for a more sustainable, greener and wildlife centric future for the country and for Somerset. More people than ever have connected to the natural world in the past few months, and its now time for key stakeholders across the county, including the county’s business communities to lead by example, to support conservation charities at a time they need it the most, and add volume to the collective voice that will stand up for nature going forwards - particular in light of the government’s ‘build, build, build’ approach and lack of financial provision for #buildingbackgreener. We are very grateful for Golledge’s continued support’
Jonathan Golledge, MD of Golledge Electronics comments, "Golledge Electronics have been proud to support Somerset Wildlife Trust over the past 14 years. We share Somerset Wildlife Trust’s passion for the environment and achieving a sustainable future, and are delighted to continue our support throughout the current challenging times. COVID-19 has impacted all our lives to differing extents and many of us, including our Golledge employees, have looked to nature to help us maintain our mental health throughout the outbreak. Somerset Wildlife Trust helps to ensure we can continue to look to nature in this way, and we are proud to renew our long-standing support of their great work."
