West Virginia

Corporate Council for the Environment

West Virginia lies at the heart of the Central Appalachian mountain range—a range that sprawls across the East Coast and supports a rich array of human and natural communities. From drinking water and food to energy resources, these mountains fuel the economies and livelihoods of millions of people. They are an essential backdrop to our lives, as well as an important part of our heritage and our future. Whether you appreciate the outdoors by paddling down the churning rapids of the Gauley River or by simply admiring the spectacular mountain vistas from your office window, investing in the remarkable biological diversity and stunning forested landscapes of West Virginia and the Central Appalachians now ensures these opportunities and resources exist tomorrow. Why should you become a member of the Corporate Council for the Environment?

CONNECT: Through Corporate Council, businesses have the opportunity to connect with cross-sector corporate leaders, policy-experts, and leading scientists who, like you, are interested in conservation and improving the environmental performance of their company.

LEARN: Businesses have a unique chance to learn about the latest TNC conservation efforts and science, as well as the implications to businesses. In addition, council members are invited to networking events, organized outings and volunteer events at TNC preserves throughout West Virginia.

DEVELOP: As members of this unique council, business owners and employees develop business tools and economic cases via networking that enable them to incorporate the value of nature into their business practices.

ENGAGE: Via your corporate giving relationship with The Nature Conservancy, you’ll have the opportunity to better understand and invest in nature’s benefits: fresh water, clean air, food and natural resources.
