Going Green

Rushmoor Voluntary Services

Together for Our Planet – Supporting Voluntary Sector Organisations in Rushmoor to ‘Go Green’

In 2023, Rushmoor Voluntary Services committed to reduce the impact of our service delivery on the environment. Thanks to the support of our Trustees and staff, we have made small but meaningful changes to our daily office practices and are proud to be working towards our Bronze Investors in the Environment accreditation.  

This webpage shares a sample of the actions we have taken on our journey.  We recognise that many of our members are keen to act against climate change, but do not have the resources or in house expertise to do this. We hope you find the links and information shared here helpful.  

Whilst our journey is far from complete, we now know that you do not need to be an expert to make a start. Every change is worth making, however small it feels. Imagine the impact it would have, if every voluntary sector organisation made that same change, it adds up to something much bigger.  

We are very grateful to have the support of VONNE (Voluntary Organisation Network Northeast). VONNE has been supporting Voluntary Organisations in the Northeast to go green for some time and have a vision to increase the geographic reach of their Going Green Together project.  They have very kindly permissioned the use of links to their website which provide a wealth of information on ideas and actions for going green.
