Cory Environmental Trust in Britain (CETB), an environmental body that provides funding to community and environmental projects, has rebranded as the Enovert Community Trust.
Enovert Community Trust awards grants to fund a broad range of community and environmental projects that have as big an impact on the community as possible. The funds are derived from a tax placed on the landfilling of waste under the terms of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF).
The change is taking place because the company which donates the landfill tax credits distributed by the Trust, Cory Environmental Resource Management Limited, has recently rebranded as Enovert Limited.
Since CETB was established in 2003, more than £14 million has been provided in grants to community and environmental projects.
Angela Haymonds, Trust Secretary of Enovert Community Trust, said: "We are very excited to announce our new name, which reflects the change in ownership and rebrand of Cory Environmental Resource Management to Enovert Limited and will better represent our primary role as a body that funds community projects.
"As a community trust, the Trustees are committed to supporting community and environmental projects across the UK, to offset some of the drawbacks of living in the vicinity of an active landfill site, which are often in areas of high social and economic deprivation.
"We support a broad range of projects including schemes to improve community halls, create new play areas and skate parks, or restore green spaces and natural habitats. Our existing funding programmes will be unaffected and Enovert Communities Trust will continue to support community and environmental improvement projects through the Landfill Communities Fund."
CETB was established in 2003 as an Environmental Body (EB) under the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). Following the sale of Cory Environmental's landfill and gas division, a new landfill operator, Enovert Limited, came into being in 2017. CETB was renamed the Enovert Community Trust to reflect the fact that the Trust now receives landfill tax credits from Enovert Limited.
