OUR HEALTHY PLANET, HEALTHY PEOPLE THEMES
The Trust recognises that people’s health is irrevocably linked to healthy environments and communities, and access to healthy foods.

Through its vision the Trust hopes to enhance the quality and longevity of human life, by helping to mitigate the ongoing degradation of nature, the environment and our food system.
