Growing your business whilst reducing your environmental impact
On 28 September 2011, between 4.00-6.30pm, At-Bristol
How do you grow your business while at the same time reducing your environmental impact? How do you keep up the momentum in your organisation? These are questions we often get asked. At this event, you will:
· Hear from the Managing Director of leading national company about how they have engaged staff successfully to reduce their environmental impact and carbon emissions.
· Hear more about At Bristol’s carbon reduction measures and receive a guided tour of the building.
· Network with others across the city working in their organisations on environmental initiatives.
You will hear from:
Simone Hindmarch-Bye, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Commercial Group
Last year the business grew by 25%, whilst at the same time reducing its carbon emissions by 15%. The Cheltenham based firm has won a number of accolades for its environmental leadership, including highest newcomer in the Sunday Times Green List 2011. Key to this success is staff engagement and Commercial’s Green Angels programme has engaged over 90% of staff in positive actions, underpinning Commercial’s reputation as an exemplar of how the environmental agenda can underpin company growth and success.
At-Bristol: A Carbon Champion Award winner, At-Bristol cut their carbon emissions by 10% last year. It will be an opportunity to hear how they did it and tour the building to view some of the progressive building management systems – like the air source heat pumps and eutectic tank used for heating and cooling the building.
