Supporter Membership Details

CL:AIRE raises the profile of Supporters amongst our Principal Members within the CL:AIRE network.

CL:AIRE works with its Supporters to collect and use strategic industry information for the purposes of developing industry initiatives to solve problems, save money and create opportunities.

The overriding concept of the Supporters Membership Scheme is to work in partnership and provide a secure home for this information which is shared back with its contributors to provide market intelligence.

When your organisation becomes a CL:AIRE Supporter we foster regular communication to collect and share important information about sustainable land reuse. In return, CL:AIRE offers Supporters a range of benefits.

Supporters are asked to provide specific information regarding their organisation and work.

As well as forming the basis of the State of the Market Report, the information gained from this process is used to help the implementation of new initiatives for the industry by providing a comprehensive repository of sector information.

For example, Supporters will be asked to provide as much information as they are able and comfortable to, on their staff numbers and their skills and qualifications; the amount and type of projects in which they have been involved; and where possible, specific details on solution design, costs, project savings etc.

The information provided will assist CL:AIRE in the design of new services, such as new training courses, assessments or guidance such that we can offer greater benefit to our Members and the industry.
