Business thanked for wildlife support

Posted onPosted on 29th Mar

A Huthwaite-based business has been thanked for 15 years of support for wildlife.

nmcn, formerly North Midland Construction, joined Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust as a corporate business supporter in 2003.

Among its work with the trust has been helping the successful delivery of education projects.

These have included taking children from areas of depravation into the outdoors, and working at Strawberry Hill Heath Nature Reserve to increase heathland habitat.

That work resulted in the first recorded pair of breeding nightjar on the site as well as attending the Trust’s Green Guardians green business awards gala.

Michael Skodova, nmcn envrionmental manager, said: “Our company’s new Positive Impact Plan 2025 sustainable strategy not only reinforces the existing relationship between nmcn and the Wildlife Trust, but it is also a testament to our shared commitment to preservation, sustainability and the environment.

“Part of this initiative involves making our business less carbon-intensive, managing the impacts of our site operations, and being a positive contributor to biodiversity.

“We’ll take active steps to meet our objectives over the next seven years by promoting and engaging the supply chain to identify and implement circular solutions, and for colleagues to put fundraising and volunteering efforts towards supporting the worthwhile causes of our charity partners.”

Holly McCain, senior development officer at the trust, added: “We are keen to work with companies that are committed to improving their environmental performance and enhancing local biodiversity.”
