Investec community environment corporate responsibility

Improving our communities’ environment

As part of our community programme, we engage our employees with volunteering opportunities that help improve the environment for communities local to our offices.

Trees for Cities

Trees for Cities delivers projects with both social and environmental impact. They engage local communities and schools to plant trees, shrubs and to grow food, reconnecting urban areas with nature. Having co-funded projects with Trees for Cities in east London and Manchester, we also arrange for teams of our people from Leeds to Reading to roll their sleeves up and improve the environment.

Project grants for charities

Apart from our partner organisations, we also support small to medium charities through small project grants.  If you represent a charity that works in our focus areas – education, entrepreneurship and/ or environment – and is local to one of our offices, you can read the full criteria below to find out more, and get in touch.
