Orsted wants to see that all organisations applying for its Community Benefit Funds reflect on their environmental impact and take positive steps to reduce the carbon footprint of their projects. Groups are asked to answer two questions during the grant application process: Are they taking steps towards reducing the carbon footprint of their project and if the project will have a positive effect on the environment? The Community Benefit Funds have changed their judging criteria to give greater weight to these answers. In the latest round, eleven organizations were awarded funding through Orsted's Burbo Bank Extension Community Fund. Emmaus Merseyside and The National Trust's Wicks Lake projects were two of the projects that were deemed 'Inspired By Green'. The National Trust has received PS16,425 for Wicks Lake's fencing work. Bree Hodge is the National Trust Ranger responsible for the Wicks Lake project. She said, "Thank you so very much for giving me the best opportunity to improve the beloved Wicks Lake area. The construction of a new fence will help us achieve our goal to improve the infrastructure surrounding the lake. It will also make a significant impact on the long-term future. This will allow people to enjoy the special spot safely, while allowing wildlife to flourish undisturbed. Everyone who visits the site is grateful to be able rebuild this important element. Emmaus Merseyside has received PS14,400 to create a safe walkway in their Sefton community gardens. Marc Bamber is the Chief Operating Officer of Emmaus Merseyside. He said that they are grateful to the Burbo bank Extension Community Fund for their support in continuing the development of the community garden in Sefton. This funding will allow us to improve the accessibility of the garden so that more people can use it and reap the benefits. Imran Nawaz is the Senior Advisor and Community Benefit Fund Manager at Orsted. He said that the funding will allow more people to use the garden. Love your home is about the people who live in it.
