Peterborough Environmental City Trust

Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT) is an independent and innovative environmental charity helping to protect and enhance the environment throughout Peterborough and beyond.

PECT was set up after Peterborough's designation in 1992 as one of four UK Environment Cities along with Leeds, Leicester and Middlesborough. With more than 23 years’ experience working within the city, PECT delivers ground-breaking and innovative projects of local, regional and national significance, enabling change for a sustainable future.

Here in the UK we’re currently using resources at such a rate that we need three planets to support us. Things need to change in order to enjoy a better quality of life for ourselves, our families and future generations.

PECT works with a multitude of communities, schools, businesses and voluntary organisations to deliver projects that make a real difference. Positive change for achieving a greener, happier, healthier city is at the heart of what we do, and our staff and volunteers are passionate advocates for 'walking the walk'.
