Third Sector Podcast: Bringing the environment into your mission

Lucinda and Andy learn how non-environmental charities can respond to the climate crisis

News editor Andy Ricketts and senior multimedia reporter Lucinda Rouse are joined by Janet Thorne, chief executive of Reach Volunteering, to hear how the charity has stepped up its efforts to fight climate change.

Janet describes the steps taken to incorporate environmental considerations into Reach’s mission and why a “greening” of the charity’s operations wasn’t considered worthwhile.

She flags the challenge of limited funding and highlights the importance of collaboration, providing pointers to sources of support such as Vonne’s Going Green Together initiative and Heritage Declares
