‘Summit Membership’ was created by EOCA in 2013, to recognise the huge commitment and contribution made by those members that wanted to support their own, entire conservation project(s) through EOCA.
A member company can choose to entirely fund any of the projects on EOCA’s shortlist, produced once all the annual applications have been received. Alternatively, a company can bring a project to EOCA from an organisation that it is already supporting or fits with the ethos of that company – which it would like to fund. Finally, a company can approach EOCA to ask it to find a project for them to fund which meets several criteria of their own, for example that it is local or that it supports a particular type of habitat that the company has links to.
EOCA will carry out all the necessary checks to ensure each project meets its own relevant criteria and will then manage payments and the overseeing of the project itself, to ensure that the project meets all the aims and objectives it set for itself on application. In this way, the member gets a tailor-made, environmental giving programme, without the need for in-house expertise or resources to manage it.

Below is a list of current and past Summit Members. Those listed prior to 2013 were not named as Summit members at the time, but would have been, had the award been available!
We would like to thank all of our Summit Members for their dedication to, and generous contributions towards conserving threatened habitats and species.
