Corporate Partnerships & Volunteering

Thames21 works with all kinds of London businesses to take care of Greater London’s 400 mile network of rivers, tributaries and canals.

Corporate volunteers help us remove an average 300 tonnes of waste from the Thames each year – much of it plastic.

We tailor corporate volunteering and team-building events to meet the needs of organisations. HSBC, Bloomberg, Royal Bank of Canada and Goldman Sachs regularly volunteer with us, as do staff from smaller, independent London businesses.

Large and small London companies are playing a crucial role in providing the last line of defence for the Thames and the wider ocean. 

Team Events

Our outdoor Team Events are practical and involve lots of hands-on activity along London’s rivers and canals. Volunteers need no prior experience to participate, however a moderate level of physical fitness is advised. 

The funds raised from corporate events go back into Thames21’s community based work. This means that the benefits of your involvement continue to make a difference to local communities and the local environment beyond the time you spend with us.

Other ways to volunteer

It’s also possible for corporate staff to volunteer in the Thames21 office on fundraising projects, PR or administration.

We offer free talks to your staff about our work and how much global impact our local action has on the environment. These sessions are usually very active and engage everybody from young to old.

Companies can also benefit from a range of partnership opportunities. By partnering with Thames21 in this way, you could enhance your CSR portfolio and value to your brand. Please contact us using the details below for more information.
