Established in 1999, Aberdeen Forward is a limited company and charity that initiates and supports environmental and recycling projects working closely with local communities and industries to educate and promote projects that help to protect our environment, reduce waste & encourage sustainability. Current initiatives which achieve these aims include our Creative Waste Exchange, which helps to divert landfill from businesses around Aberdeen, a Zero Waste scheme and our 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. To help support local businesses, we also provide a full range of office furniture solutions, fully managed office suites, serviced mail boxes and virtual office services allowing our clients to concentrate on their day to day business.
Whilst we have a diverse range of active projects, all of our work is in-keeping with our core ethos to protect the environment, minimise waste and reduce landfill whilst helping the community. Please have a look around our site and don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information on any area of our operations.
