Learning & Networking Events
We hold regular Sustainable Business Breakfast learning and networking events, each focusing on a different topic, such as energy efficiency, transport or green marketing, and including presentations from industry experts as well as case study businesses that have saved money and won new customers through improving their environmental performance.
With thirty to forty businesses typically attending, it is a great chance to meet the type of organisations you would want to do business with.
Case Study Visits
Case Study Visits provide the chance to see first-hand how other organisations are actively improving the sustainability of their operations; to see energy efficient and renewable energy technologies in place and learn how they engage staff and building users.
Also keep an eye out for our special (and always oversubscribed!) behind-the-scenes tours of energy, waste and water plants in Sussex and Surrey.
