Island Nature Trust is seeking corporate sponsorships from a small number of local businesses that share an interest in the environment and promote a strong set of social values. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) figures prominently in a growing number of businesses globally, and many local companies have risen to the challenge. Land conservation is everyone’s business and Island Nature Trust appreciates the strides many of you have taken to be more active and aware of the fragility of our beautiful Island home. Featured here are the local companies that have committed to supporting Island Nature Trust in our work. If you would like to be considered as a corporate sponsor, please get in touch. Our sponsorship packages can be viewed here.
Sekisui Diagnostics is an international corporation that focuses on developing assays and diagnostic instrument solutions used across the globe in hospitals and medical facilities. Sekisui has a strong CSR policy with a focus on environmental sustainability and engaging with like-minded groups in the communities where they operate. Sekisui and their local and North American staff have been volunteering with Island Nature Trust since 2016. Together, Sekisui and Island Nature Trust have conducted beach cleanups and planted hundreds of trees and shrubs in natural areas across Queens County. In 2018, Sekisui became our very first Woodland Steward through Island Nature Trust’s corporate sponsorship program! They have adopted the Jenkins Complex Natural Area in Mount Albion, PEI. We look forward to working with Sekisui in years to come as we continue to manage and restore our Jenkins Complex Natural Area. Stay tuned for a big celebration coming up in Summer 2019!
Maritime Electric has been delivering electricity to Islanders since 1918. They are an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortis Inc. Their CSR policy includes a strong commitment to environmental responsibility and stewardship. Since 2010, Maritime Electric has supported Island Nature Trust’s monitoring and stewardship of the endangered piping plover on PEI beaches. With 60 beaches to monitor and a long summer nesting season for this small shorebird, staff and travel budgets are always stretched in the program delivery for this species-at-risk. The financial assistance of Maritime Electric has been critical in maintaining a high standard of monitoring and protection for almost a decade. We are so grateful for their consistent and loyal support!
