Our Environmental Pledges
This checklist is a ‘quick & easy’ method of demonstrating how your organisation already makes or
could make a contribution towards environmental issues within your community. You may feel that
certain areas do not relate to your project, however we are also interested in how you Community
Organisation as a whole contributes towards environment issues such as those listed below.
The following checklist must be completed and submitted with a grant application. It should be
reviewed at regular intervals. A good way to ensure this happens is to add a review of the
checklist on the agenda for your committee meetings. Please keep a copy of this form as it can be
used in your end of project report to show progress towards implementing environmental
procedures/policies.
