The Castle Climbing Centre is delighted to launch the Castle Sustainability Fund: a fund created to support grassroots projects in the UK and around the world to tackle climate change and social inequality.
The Castle has committed to investing 10% of annual profits each year into The Castle Sustainability Fund. This money will be used to fund grassroots and sustainable projects anywhere in the world in response to the global climate crisis.
The Castle Sustainability Fund aims to empower and facilitate communities to face the challenges of a changing natural environment and patterns of distribution and abundance by supporting projects with a deep understanding of complex social-ecological systems. Our goal is to help equitable, resilient communities access the tools needed to thrive in a healthy and safe environment, and then collaborate to protect it.
Our Guiding Principles
Helping communities develop their own capabilities and resilience to tackle the complex challenges facing humanity and the planet
Building long lasting friendships and partnerships with communities and projects around the world by using a participatory approach and offering our skills and support beyond the financial award
To create the conditions for everyone to live in safe and healthy environments
To promote biodiversity, wildlife and wilderness conservation
To prioritise people and the planet over profit
