Until April 2017, the Trust is undertaking a review of its work over the last 26 years and is not inviting any grant applications.
Ashden.org is a separate charity and continues to operate fully.

About Us

In order to make lasting changes both internationally and here in the UK, we make grants to organisations with a track record of delivering innovative and effective projects. We believe that the Trust and its beneficiaries have contributed to the recognition of a wide range of environmental issues. These include the environmental impacts of aviation, a greater understanding of the role that rainforests play in managing our climate, the broad acceptance of the benefits of sustainable regeneration and the role of renewable energy in helping create a low carbon future. We have enabled great numbers of individuals to participate effectively in developing their communities and environments.

The Trust’s long-term focus on climate change, sustainable development and improving the quality of life in poorer communities allows us to explore a range of ways to tackle these enormous challenges under seven category headings:

Sustainable Development International
Sustainable Development UK
Sustainable Regeneration
People at Risk
Arts and Sustainability
Social Investment Fund
Low Carbon Fund
