Kew is committed to working in mutually beneficial corporate partnerships, with a diverse range of commercial organisations.
Kew's Corporate Partnerships
We believe that working in partnership with industry enables delivery of our core mission to "inspire and deliver science-based plant conservation worldwide, enhancing the quality of life”, as well as improving the delivery of our partners' biodiversity and environmental policies and practice globally.
We engage with organisations that show a commitment to sustainable development and biodiversity management through their policies and practices, as well as a dedication to improving their outcomes in this area. Kew is able to assist companies in a number of different ways, including biodiversity management policy development, on-site botanical inventory and mapping, and community engagement projects assessing indigenous botanical resource uses.

Through 250 years of scientific research and innovation, Kew has developed extensive knowledge and experience throughout our science departments, including the Jodrell Laboratory, Millennium Seed Bank, Horticulture and Public Experience, and the Herbarium. Kew can contribute this knowledge to multi-disciplinary research projects on a wide range of research topics such as biodiversity, sustainable livelihoods, climate change and biodiversity offsets.
