about us

Local Action. Global Impact.

Founded by a local resident, Sustainable Merton has been making a difference to sustainable living in Merton since 2007.

Still going, and growing, strong, as Merton's leading environmental charity, we continue to inspire, engage and influence local people and partner organisations to be the solution to the issues affecting our environment locally and globally.

Our organisation reaches out to residents, partners and businesses, and has a number of dedicated volunteers - our Champions, who contribute to the organisation’s activity and development, complementing the work carried out by our small team of staff and trustees.

Our Forward Strategy

In March 2017, key stakeholders - including volunteers, staff, trustees and residents, came together to help develop Sustainable Merton’s ‘Theory of Change’. 

 

To discover where the efforts of our work should be focused to have the greatest impact on the lives of local people, we asked - 'what is the change YOU want to see?' and, by the end of an insightful planning phase, four priority areas of work were identified:

WASTE

AIR QUALITY

ENERGY

FOOD

We are, and will always be, rooted in the community,  for the community. 

Community Leadership

Over the years,  Sustainable Merton has created strong networks between those interested in the sustainability agenda and works with very knowledgeable people. 

Our leadership role is well recognised and we lead on various areas of work including:
