ENVIRONMENTAL INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES
We are keen to work in partnership with private businesses to enhance our local environment. With significant change within the agricultural industry over the next few years we are keen to look at new ways of investing in the countryside for the benefit of the environment, public enjoyment and businesses.
We would like to link management and investment in the landscape to the long-term needs of business and society. Business interests can range from resilient crop production, flood risk, carrying capacity of water catchments, management of carbon or biodiversity, to health and quality of life for their workforce.
We are working to identify our Natural Capital Assets and are currently undertaking carbon assessments of our farming businesses. These activities will help us develop a baseline of our natural assets and opportunities for carbon sequestration. The diversity within the Chalke Valley including chalk streams, species-rich grassland, woodland in a mixed farming landscape offers an equally wide range of opportunities.
