Sustainability help for businesses at workshop

Posted onPosted on 16th Jan

A free two-hour workshop exploring the topic of sustainability in businesses is to be held on Tuesday, 28th February, at Hexgreave Hall, Farnsfield.

Businesses can gain advice on how being more sustainable could decrease operational costs and increase resilience.

Organised by Newark and Sherwood District Council, the workshop will highlight the importance of moving towards a greener outlook, the positive effects sustainability can have on local businesses, and the steps that have already been taken to make the region more sustainable.

Attendees will hear from Will Syme-Nicholson, partner and chief finance officer at Leeds Associates Ltd, a sustainability and sustainable energy consultancy that provides innovative strategies and solutions across market sectors.

The council will discuss what it is doing to support sustainability.

Coun Rhona Holloway, portfolio holder for Economic Development and Visitors at the council, said: “What does sustainability in business actually mean was a question put to me by a local business at the recent Economic Growth Conference.

“I am delighted that, out of that question, this workshop has evolved to lead the way and highlight the many areas where sustainability can have positive impacts on your business.”

Will said: “As a local company, we understand the pressures local business are facing, especially with the three issues of the cost-of-living crisis, energy cost increases, and the ambition for Net Zero Carbon.

“We give common sense, industry-led solutions that allow businesses to reduce operational costs, whilst reducing the carbon produced through renewable technology — keeping the hard-earned cash in the business, whilst saving the planet.”

The Sustainability in Business workshop is part of a programme of events organised by the council to support businesses.

Future events will also include a D2N2 Growth Hub business surgery on 21st March.
