PECT is an independent charity working for a cleaner, greener, healthier city of Peterborough and beyond. We deliver innovative projects that enable change for a sustainable future. 

PECT works with a multitude of communities, schools, businesses, local authorities and voluntary organisations to deliver projects that make a real difference.


Forest for Peterborough

In 2010 PECT launched Forest for Peterborough, an ambitious project to plant over 180,000 trees in and around the city and surrounding countryside by 2030. The aim is to plant one tree for every person living in the city. In an area where tree coverage is below the national average, PECT wants to create a network of wooded areas, improving our green spaces and the quality of air we breathe.
