Established in 1999, Aberdeen Forward is a limited company and registered charity that initiates and supports environmental projects and initiatives around the city of Aberdeen. We work closely with local communities, businesses & individuals to educate and promote projects that help to protect our environment, reduce waste & encourage sustainability.
Aside from our general activities around the city which promote environmental sustainability and waste reduction, we operate a Zero Waste scheme and our own Roots and Shoots project which helps to reintegrate ex-offenders and get them back into work.
With funding from the landfill tax scheme, we also provide grants to community groups for projects that aim to improve quality of life and further protect our environment. In addition, we provide information on environmental topics and run eco-friendly community workshops, such as upholstery, sewing and seasonal craft classes.
