Presentations – Sustainable Business Breakfast, Horsham

SBB-HorshamLocal businesses gathered in Horsham for a Sustainable Business Breakfast focussing on environmental management, employee engagement and sustainable supply chains.

Shelaine Siepel, Sustainability Consultant at Brighton and Hove City Council, explored the benefits of environmental certification. Through their ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, the local authority has made energy and water savings at their premises, such as the Brighton Centre, and improved waste management at outdoor events.

Sandra Norval, Environment Manager at Southern Railway, explained how engaging employees has led to economic and environmental benefits. Staff are encouraged to suggest and implement initiatives. Several have also undertaken environmental qualifications.

Toby Robins, Director of Sustainability at Wiles Greenworld, shared how they have worked with suppliers and customers to reduce environmental impact. The office products company have benchmarked sales against CO2 emissions and achieved a £20,000 increase per tonne since 2008.

View their presentations on-line.

The next Sustainable Business Breakfast is on the 17th July in Shoreham-on-Sea. Speakers include The Body Shop, Iron Mountain and Greengauges. The events programme can be viewed on-line.
