Summary


Sustainable development provides an opportunity for businesses to become 'green' whilst providing real bottom line benefits.

Description


As a company it is often difficult to know where to start to make your business more sustainable or why you should do it at all, whilst others might think it involves complicated and costly procedures.  Our one day introductory workshop will give those new to sustainability an overview of:

  • Why is it important?
  • The benefits to be gained
  • How to make a start - simple steps

The day is packed full of advice and guidance for businesses of all sizes and across all sectors.  We can run a workshop specifically for your company or department on your premises or at our Genesis Centre, or you can send staff to one of our scheduled workshops.

There are many reasons why businesses should get involved; here are just a few:

  • To gain real marketing benefits
  • To cut overheads by reducing energy consumption and the waste you dispose of
  • Improve employee relations with good environmental practices
Cost


£145 + VAT per individual
£950 + VAT for a company day plus expenses if on company premises (up to 10 people)
