Corporate forum

A special relationship with businesses

We have a special relationship with a number of businesses that operate in the National Parks. It is called the Corporate Forum for National Parks and its members have all pledged to take into account the special nature of the Parks in their operations. 

National Grid line inspectionsThe Corporate Forum for National Parks was set up in the early 1990s and most of our current members have been part of the Forum for many years. The members are:

Hanson
National Grid
Northern Powergrid (formerly CE Electric)
Tarmac

 
Forum members produce a declaration of commitment setting out how they will work within National Parks. We are currently producing an updated version of this document but the previous document is available for information.
 
The Campaign for National Parks and our Corporate Forum members believe that dialogue with all kinds of stakeholders is invaluable in increasing understanding about what drives big business in National Parks, and about why people feel so strongly about protecting the Parks.
 
So while we don’t always agree, we usually understand any difference in position. Member companies find the Forum valuable because it gives them an opportunity to learn about how other companies operate in these sensitive environments and it opens up new stakeholder networks.
