The Hackbridge Green Business Network is a group of forward thinking businesses that share a vision of a low carbon economy and want to lead the way in making it happen.
The network has been created as a result of a project called Greening Businesses in Hackbridge, delivered by local sustainability experts, BioRegional, an environmental charity based in Hackbridge. The project is funded by the London Borough of Sutton and the European Regional Development Fund.
What are the benefits?
If you are a local business in Hackbridge, then joining this network makes good business sense. It’s completely free and you will receive priority invites to free workshops and events, network updates, as well as access to free resources and support.
The first 45 members of the network receive a free energy audit and support from local sustainability experts, BioRegional, worth over £700.
Joining helps give you an opportunity to strengthen your businesses and make it more resilient. We also aim to help businesses supply and procure more locally, generate energy and explore other opportunities in the local area.
Next workshop: Environmental legislation – what affects you, and do you comply? Join us for breakfast as we hear from head of Blake Lapthorn solicitors’ Business Regulatory team, John Mitchell. RSVP to Ben
Throughout 2011, we are putting on monthly workshops, covering a number of issues highlighted as useful by local businesses. These are completely free and are a great chance to network with local businesses and pick up some useful tips at the same time.
