Green event will offer business leaders chance to benefit in future, says chamber
BUSINESSES are being encouraged to attend a green event later this year to encourage sustainability by the chamber of commerce.
Suzanne Hall-Gibbins, managing director of Gloucestershire Chamber of Commerce, said the upcoming Climate for Growth conference marked an important opportunity for businesses to learn and engage with leading practitioners and thinkers.
The Climate for Growth event is aimed at the leaders of small to medium-sized businesses and will highlight key factors affecting business, including major market changes and legislation.
Suzanne said: "It will provide business leaders with the chance to look at their organisations through a sustainability lens and better understand the business benefits. We are certainly recommending the event to our members."

The seminar will also explain how to take advantage of the eco-sector, now believed to be the fastest growing industry worldwide.
Key speakers will include Dan Epstein, who was Head of Sustainability at LOCOG (the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games), and Julian Borra, former creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi.
Sarah Daly, strategic sustainability consultant at mygreeneye, who is leading Climate for Growth, said: "Most SMEs don't realise that sustainability has such an impact on their bottom line, but is one of the best ways to reduce costs and therefore boost profits."
Cotswold Conference Centre, near Broadway, is hosting the workshop on April 11 and 12. It is sponsored by eco-brand Ecover.
