The Sustainable Business Network has been working directly on nature regeneration since 2014. We’ve helped to fund the planting of over 800,000 native plants and trees, working with partners all over the country. In recent years, we’ve funded nature based employment for over 190 people. This is rejuvenating waterways and landscapes and transforming people’s lives.
