The journey together for both Novozymes Biopharma, as Albumedix was previously branded, with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust started with the Mini Meadows campaign – encouraging the support of the people of Nottinghamshire to create thousands of ‘Mini Meadows’ across the county. Fifteen thousand free seed packs were given away, urging people to grow the wild flowers in their gardens or even in a pot or hanging basket as over the past 50 years the UK has lost up to 98% of its wildflower meadows.
The mutual relationship has included attending and networking at the Trusts’ business gala awards and their inspiring breakfast presentations held in the Albumedix city office, as well as holding fundraising events and getting involved in practical conservation volunteering sessions.
Kate Denton, Regulatory Affairs Manager at Albumedix stated,
We have always enjoyed getting involved with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, and it’s not just a financial donation. It’s a practical relationship too.
Kate continued, “The staff benefit so much from the annual conservation volunteering out on a nature reserve. It is a positive team building experience out of the office environment and we learn a lot about conservation techniques as well as the wildlife. You just can’t beat the health and wellbeing benefits for our employees. The business really gains from it.”
