Eco Networking for Businesses

May 11 2020 09:30 - 11:30

Oakes Barn, St Andrew's St South, IP33 3PH Bury Saint Edmunds

Come and join us for a morning of connection as we explore different themes around sustainability and becoming more environmentally friendly. 

Each session will have a different theme and a guest speaker to deliver a brief talk or presentation to the group. There will be time for focused discussion around the topic as well as more general networking opportunities.
We are working in collaboration with Our Bury St Edmunds, Happy Food Coop, Sustainable Bury, Happy Planet Heroes and West Suffolk Council to encourage our community to look after our environment and to connect with one another to share knowledge and ideas. 

These sessions will be free with limited spaces available. We will have a retiring donation at the end of each session to go towards West Suffolk Hive CIC, a community interest company based in Bury St Edmunds, which will help fund the biannual Green Fair in Bury. We also ask that you purchase teas and coffees from Oakes Barn and do not bring your own refreshments along. 

We hope to host these networking mornings every other month and hope that you will join us for as many as you can.
This session will be focusing on developing an environmental policy for an emergency. Our guest speaker is Jon Parker from Pico Auto, who has helped his company to develop their environmental policy: www.picoauto.com/about/environment

Together, we can make Bury St Edmunds a greener community, and an example to the rest of the county.
