Working with Capability North East is a great way to analyse operations, make savings and be independently validated and recognised foryour efforts. Engaging staff to deliver sustainability ambitions, reduce resource use whislt integrating sustainbiltiy into strategies and operations.
Named after the North East landscape architect, Capability Brown, who lived 300 years ago and created some of the most-loved landscapes in the UK.
Many of the places and gardens he designed are still being realised, hundreds of years after their creation. This is where the inspiration for Capability North East came from; what environmental and landscape legacy are we going to leave for future generations? We recognises that the actions we take today will create the healthy and flourishing environment of North East England for now and the future.
Finanical surpluses after operating costs will contribute to the Capability Environment Fund, a fund specifically for the North East to enable landscape scale enhancements that benefit nature and people.
