Charitable and social responsibility

Ecovril has been set up with the intention of participating in a sustainable circle of activity and enhancement of the countryside and environment generally. Wherever possible we strive to encourage use of renewable energy, reduction of energy use, use of materials from verifiably sustainable sources improvements to thermal conductivity of buildings through design and material specification.

 

We comit a proportion of profits to the replanting of trees to replace what we have used, and to support charities and individuals who are doing what they can to reduce the harm we do to planet earth.

To this end, we support the following charities:
