Pennon Environmental Fund

Following the imminent sale of Viridor Ltd by Pennon Group PLC, Viridor Credits will no longer run the Pennon Environmental Fund, and this scheme will close.

This means that the final deadline for accepting applications under the Pennon Environmental Fund scheme is 31 July 2020. After this date, applications under the Pennon Environmental Fund scheme will not be accepted.

All existing funded projects under this scheme will still be able to access funding under the same conditions as before.

The Pennon Environmental Fund was set up more than 20 years ago. In that time, 240 projects have shared £2.5m funding all over the South West of England. We would like to thank the PEF committee for directing our funding to so many deserving causes, and to the hundreds of volunteers who have selflessly delivered so many valuable schemes.

If you have any questions regarding the closure of the PEF scheme, please contact a member of the team at
