Companies are invited to join us and make a difference to the New Forest.

The spectacular New Forest is world-renowned for its iconic ponies and classic English landscape of shady woodlands, rolling heathland and breathtaking coastline.

Now companies are invited to team up with the New Forest National Park Authority to make a difference to this treasured area of England with the launch of a corporate partnership scheme.

New Forest National Park Authority Chairman Julian Johnson said: ‘The New Forest National Park is held in great affection by many people as a place of relaxation, spectacular scenery and fascinating culture and history.

‘We are looking for more creative ways to fund our important work to protect the New Forest and to keep it as a living and working landscape for future generations. We hope companies of all sizes will join us to benefit both the National Park and their business.’

National Park Authority Corporate Partnerships Officer Matt Keatley said: ‘A partnership with the New Forest National Park Authority can help businesses achieve a variety of sales, marketing, promotion and corporate social responsibility goals.

‘Our projects and events are linked to a wide range of important initiatives including community engagement, environment, conservation, education and sustainability.’

ExxonMobil at Fawley has been supporting the New Forest National Park Authority for a number of years with a wide range of environmental and heritage initiatives.

Nigel Burt, Community Affairs Manager, said: ‘A partnership with the National Park Authority has provided an unusual and fascinating way for us to support the local community which is important to our staff. It has increased our profile in the area through publicity, exhibitions and awards and it has helped us to demonstrate our commitment to the environment and the local community. Importantly, our partnership has also provided a number of opportunities for our staff to volunteer with several of these projects.’

Marketing packages and benefits are available to suit a range of organisations and budgets, and can include:

  • Project and event sponsorship
  • Cause-related marketing and affinity campaigns
  • Staff events and corporate days with our rangers and specialists
  • Public relations opportunities.
