Staff from across the Noble Foods group have volunteered at Clearwell mill at Coleford, one of Noble Foods’ six feed mills, for two days of improving tree-cover, hedgerows and habitats.
“I’m so proud of what our volunteers have achieved in just two days,” said Glenn Evans, group environment, health & safety manager . “We’ve managed to plant well over 1,800 hedgerow plants and a large number of trees covering over 350 meters. A huge thank you to our brilliant volunteers, without whom this project wouldn’t have been possible. Not only has it made an immediate difference to the landscape here at Clearwell, but in years to come our efforts will flourish into a breadth of habitats to support local wildlife”.
“The way we interact with our local environments has been core to Noble Foods for quite some time,” said Glenn Evans. “The fact is, our business is closely connected to nature, so being proactive and passionate when it comes to the environment is important and necessary. Our plan is to have Biodiversity Action Plans in place for all our sites by 2025. These plans will help us action the building blocks we need to encourage wildlife and improve biodiversity.
