Join the Fit for the Future network

Posted on: 17/05/2017

Supporting members on energy and wider sustainability issues, including water, waste and climate change adaptation.

A thriving sustainability network for not-for-profit organisations has launched its new strategy, laying out plans for making its members climate-friendly, adaptive and resilient over the coming years. In 2016 the network, Fit for the Future, helped its member to save an estimated £1.2million and generate 32.1GWH of renewable energy, enough to power 8,834 homes for a year.

Fit for the Future has attracted dozens of charities including Cancer Research UK, the RSPB, Guide Dogs, RNLI and Oxfam GB since it was set up by the National Trust and sustainability charity, Ashden in 2013. By engaging in honest and open collaboration with each other, member charities are moving forward with environmental projects and becoming leaders for the low-carbon transition in the third sector.

The Network is going from strength-to-strength as it recruits new members and helps them not only advance their environmental projects but to measure their impacts. Fit for the Future supported a 40% increase in energy reporting and monitoring amongst its members in 2016 and aims to grow that number this year.
