Green Business



Want to know more about the green business opportunities available in this area

Want to start being a ‘greener’ business but at a cost that doesn’t stop business

You have already made green business decisions and are happy to share the pros and cons

Have ideas you want to share to see if anybody else has already tried

Have ideas that you want to share because you think they will work

We want to facilitate a discussion and host experts over the course of 5 meetings leading to a one day conference and a series of workshops . If you are at the start of your environmental journey, or an award winning green business, come and share your experiences and opportunities. Let me know if you would like to do a short presentation that you feel could help other businesses.


Thursday 26th March POSTPONED

We have taken the decision to postpone this meeting and will not now be conducting a webinar instead. As the situation moves so fast, we don’t want to be a distraction for businesses focused on immediate survival.

We will be here to pick this up in the Autumn when we all hope the world returns to some sort of normality.

In the meantime, we are keen to be of use to businesses and help them connect into any advice or equally flag any issues not being addressed.

Our CEO Sarah is a Director of the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership and as such is able to raise issues as they arise, particularly with relation to emerging issues and unintended consequences that aren’t picked up in central government announcements. There is a twice weekly call with the local leaders that is a good route through which to do this.

Please do not hesitate to contact me on [email protected]
