Chamber events will promote the benefits of low carbon approach

Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce will be delivering a programme of exciting events designed to help SME’s reduce their costs by going low carbon and helping them to grow their business in the fast-growing low carbon economy.

The programme is being supported through the ERDF programme with the support of the Local Enterprise Partnership, (LEP) and with the assistance of the Liverpool Green Partnership.

Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive, Jenny Stewart, explained

“The events will provide a chance to hear best practice from companies and organisations already benefitting from the low carbon economy and will provide a practical company to company (session for) information exchange” It’s a great chance to learn directly from other’s experience and understand the opportunities that exist within our expanding low carbon economy.”

Her views were echoed by Alan Welby, Executive Director for Key Growth Sectors at Liverpool City Region LEP:

“This is one of the areas where the City Region economy can develop a real competitive strength. We have a cluster of highly innovative companies already succeeding in the low carbon economy and this is a chance for the wider SME sector to embrace low carbon practice and opportunities.”

The main programme starts on November 27th with the first ‘Green there – Done that’ session, and will continue through 2015. A complementary programme of events supported by the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority will focus on the “circular economy” concept highlighting how waste can be reduced or reused.

Carl Beer, Chief Executive of the MRWA commented:

“There is actually more business waste generated in the City Region than domestic waste and it’s an important part of our mission to ensure that as much of this as possible is re-used and recycled. This initiative is about taking that message to SME’s and showing them how positive waste and recycling policies can actually benefit their bottom-line.”

For our first event on November 27th there will be a panel of experienced and passionate business people who will provide practical hints on how to develop innovative and sustainable ways of working to succeed in an expanding market. The panel will be:

Chris Benson, Managing Director, Benson Signs, a leading manufacturer who has embedded environmental best practice within all departments, including LED lighting, electric vehicles and biomass heating.

Paul Corcoran, Managing Director, Agent Marketing.

John Robinson, Managing Director, Symphony Cars EV-ZE. Award winner SYMPHONY EV has become a leading supplier of zero carbon electric vehicles. An advocate for sustainable travel and new technologies, John has worked relentlessly to develop a successful green strategy that has economic, social and environmental benefits for the city region.

Christine Fawcett, Services Manager, Liverpool FC. Christine has been involved in the delivery of “Reds Going Green”, a carbon policy aimed at embedding an energy-saving culture amongst its workforce.

Whether you are a business with little or no knowledge of how a green strategy can improve your bottom line, or a business needing more advice from experts in the field, these two hours could set you on your way to commercial success.
