Corporate support case study - Portsmouth Water

Portsmouth Water has been an active corporate member of the Wildlife Trust for 13 years. During this time we’ve worked together to the benefit of both organisations and our local wildlife.

Portsmouth Water has been an active corporate member of the Wildlife Trust for 13 years. During this time we’ve worked together to the benefit of both organisations and our local wildlife.

Ecological Monitoring & Training

Portsmouth Water employed the Trust to carry out bat surveys at 79 buildings and 46 sites to establish if there were any bat roosts likely to be present. We also provided both protected species and bat awareness training for Portsmouth Water staff. This work not only allowed Portsmouth Water to fulfil their legal obligations, but also led to the creation of a Bat Risk Register. Portsmouth Water use the register whenever staff are working or planning work in Portsmouth Water building stock, ensuring they can protect and conserve bats during their day-to-day activities.

Living Landscapes in Practice

Through working with the Trust, Portsmouth Water has been inspired to use its 53 operational land holdings to create ‘stepping stones for nature’ in keeping with our landscape approach to nature conservation. Simple actions like amending or reducing mowing regimes at grassland sites have made a difference. Portsmouth Water helped the Trust have a more strategic impact across our region by feeding into the company’s Water Resource Management Plan in 2014.

"Our membership, along with that of other local companies has enabled the Trust to do more to protect local wildlife and wild places and is a clear signal to our 700,000 customers and business partners that we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously". Tracey Viney, Portsmouth Water

Portsmouth Water chose to cement its relationship with the Trust by becoming a corporate member. Staff have regularly attended Wildlife Investor events, sending representatives to find out more about the work of the Trust and to network with and share business practices with our other corporate members. In 2011 Portsmouth Water hosted a popular event at their Itchen Water Treatment Works. The event combined talks from Trust experts about our river catchment work, and from Portsmouth Water about their work at the site to produce the water supply we all rely on and to improve the local habitats for the resident wildlife.

Our ongoing relationship makes it is easier for either the Trust or Portsmouth Water to start discussing elements of our work that might overlap. The secret of getting the best for local nature is the ability to share knowledge to get the best for local communities and local wildlife
