The Southern Sustainability Partnership has been instrumental in both supporting the Council’s agenda of positioning Bournemouth and the wider region as a Green Economy Leader, and in providing a platform for businesses across the South to showcase their sustainability credentials. The Big Sustainability Expo is an excellent showcase of technology and knowledge from across the region and is gaining wide recognition as a leading industry event. The Big Green Awards was an excellent addition this year, helping to bring pride and profile to those of us who are making great strides in being sustainable organisations. Keep up the excellent work.Head of Economic & Cultural Development - Bournemouth Borough Council
This is the one event I always try and support. Well organised, well thought through and purposeful.Head of Innovation, Ellen MacArthur Foundation
Our recycling charity, based in Poole - Dorset, has really appreciated the interest and support that The Southern Sustainability Partnership has given us. Especially attending their Expo, where we received so many positive comments from visitors to our stand. We may not be the biggest player in the world of sustainability, but thanks to The Southern Sustainability Partnership, their enthusiasm for our work has ensured our name and projects have been heard by new audiences and we very much appreciate this.Business Manager, Ideas2Action
What a smashing experience yesterday at the Expo. All your hard work definitely paid off. Thank you for all your support in the run up to the event, and we will definitely recommend any businesses to do the same in the future.New Business Development Manager - Serious Tissues
I can't thank you enough for yesterday. You both are such an inspiration and I'm so pleased to have met you.Owner, Obvs Skincare
The Big Sustainability Expo has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase leading sustainability practice and green technology. The Southern Sustainability Partnership has been key to the event’s continuing success.Chief Policy Advisor, IEMA
The Southern Sustainability Partnership enables organisations to learn about Sustainability issues and opportunities from some very knowledgeable speakers, make contact with other like-minded people to share experiences and ideas - and provide support to each other. I attend the Big Sustainable Expo each year and have always learnt new things and met really interesting and useful suppliers and contacts. The site visits have helped me see ideas in action and the events provide the ideal opportunity to learn from both the speakers and the experiences of peers. They are a local company to us that really understand and help organisations deal with the local, national and global sustainability agenda.Sustainability Manager, RNLI
I’m a huge supporter of The Southern Sustainability Partnership and its Big Sustainability Expo. We must all contribute to seeking a greener and more sustainable way of life. Businesses, both big and small, have a key role to play in this and in order to meet their full potential, I would urge them to work in partnership with The Southern Sustainability Partnership and, also, to attend the Big Sustainability Expo.Iolo Williams, Presenter - BBC Spring Watch
The Southern Sustainability Partnership offers my business a well-rounded calendar of events. The Green Supplier Hub has been instrumental in us forming partnerships which have opened new doors. We exhibit at the Expo each year to raise awareness for our solutions, which has proved extremely successful. As MD, I have taken time to work on the business by attending the conference. This has helped me understand the way we run our own organisation fits perfectly into a Circular Economy model as we design our own waste compaction systems, build them on-site and offer maintenance and equipment return system. We were delighted to be honoured with the Waste and Recycling Solution Award at the Big Green Awards last year.Managing Director, Pearce Compaction Systems
The Southern Sustainability Partnership has been a great help to us by introducing us not only to new customers but also into a network of like-minded professionals. We have made several new business contacts which have enabled us to broaden our knowledge of the industry and to refer them on to our customers.Managing Director, Led-Zip Lighting
Being one of the early members of The Southern Sustainability Partnership I strongly believe it has helped our business. The partnership is not only about the very useful events but also about meeting business owners and employees whose hearts beat for the environment and, hence, are honest and hardworking partners for you in your projects. Friends and associates you find within this group of people are to count on. Those I have had the pleasure to work with really go the extra mile to fulfil your customer’s requirements and give them a trustworthy impression. All this is thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Southern Sustainability team who do not spare any effort in supporting your business.Managing Director - Air-Site Limited
The GHS Group has worked alongside Anita and Lynda for 4 years. When we first came across the Southern Sustainably Partnership is was so refreshing to find people that realised they couldn't change the World overnight, but by working together and all making small improvements we can actually make a far bigger impact. We've since been introduce to like-minded people and quickly forged trusting relationships that have made working on projects together easy and enjoyable. If you're thinking you would like to be a greener business I can only recommend you contact these two great ladies and see how you can fit in. Turn up for a couple of Green Supplier Hub meetings and you'll quickly learn there are some great businesses in this room that all want to help. I can only recommend the SSP and their events.Managing Director - GHS Group
Sustainable Business Conference: I thought it was a great day, really interesting and an interesting mix of people/businesses so well done again for organising.Relationship Director - South East, Barclays UK
I found the Sustainability Business Conference insightful and very productive. The event was well organised with a sufficient number of attendees to make it very interactive and personal. The workshops were a great way to get everyone talking about sustainability within their workplace and share best practice. It was also a clever way of breaking the traditional format of seminars. It was helped by having two very knowledgeable and friendly individuals from Terrafiniti who made us feel relaxed during the workshops. I will definitely be attending future events run by Southern Sustainability Partnership knowing that it will benefit my sustainability journey.Eco Sustainable Solutions Ltd
Sustainability Business Conference: A fascinating event that will no doubt grow over the years to come – you are doing really well, you should be very proud!Glenn St John-Colgan - Augmentas Group Limited
We have achieved Highly Commended at the Sustainable Business Award at the Business Excellence Awards. A chance meeting with Lynda Daniels and Anita Potten at The Southern Sustainability Partnership has shown us how, though lots of small changes, you can make a difference. Thank you ladies.Marc Smith, Managing Director GHS Group
The Southern Sustainability Partnership has allowed us to expand our network and attend events such as the Big Sustainability Expo. There, we were able to set up a booth and meet like-minded individuals. This space has allowed us to forge new partnerships with companies like Diguru UK who were also in attendance. Overall, it was an amazing experience for our team at envoPAP and we would highly recommend it to companies who are in their early stages of business to those who have already established themselves. 20 April 2021, The Big Sustainability Expo 2021. Save the date! We also send our thanks to them for recognizing us with Product Innovation of the Year and Sustainability Thought Leader of the Year! Even from beyond the event they continue to help us gain more traction towards sustainable brands!EnvoPAP
Thank you for holding and galvanising support for The Big Sustainability Expo here in our City. It was great to see so many businesses and partners talking in practical terms to reduce carbon emissions and improve their business, whilst creating a cleaner and greener future. It was widely said to me that without you both, your deep-felt commitment drive, and passion for this subject then firstly this event would not have happened and secondly it would not have been the success it was. We very much hope you will revive the event in 2022 and can help where possible to ensure the long-term success of The Big Sustainability Expo and the continuing delivery of our greener city objectives.Daniel Fitzhenry, Leader of Southampton City Council
Congratulations on what was a very successful event, well done on pulling it all together. As I mentioned yesterday the speaker theatre had a really impressive turnout for every session.Caroline Carlin - Operations and Sustainability Manager, Southampton Football Club
We were delighted to attend the Big Sustainability Expo for the first time. The National Oceanography Centre is proud to be based in Southampton and we were pleased that the ocean was included in many climate and environmental conversations at the event. We look forward to working with local and national companies to ensure this continues.Holly Evans, Philanthropy Manager, National Oceonography Centre
Thank you for the excellent opportunities which the Big Sustainability Expo bought to us in contacts for our Preventing Plastic Pollution project. We had a very fruitful day and appreciate the organisation which went into such a complex event. I also had an enjoyable evening at the Awards event.Sophie Goodhall-Smith, Project Manager, Plastics and Sustainability Team, Environment Agency
It was our first time exhibiting at The Big Sustainability Expo and it has definitely been worthwhile. The number of meaningful conversations with visitors exceeded our expectations and we are really excited to have had the opportunity to network with other stand holders!Michael Ramlakhan, Managing Director at Timeless IT
I'm writing on behalf of the team to say thank you very much for the stand at the Big Sustainability Expo last week. The team had a great day, met some interesting people and found it a great learning experience.Xanthe Caldecott - Co-Founder & Managing Director, Green the UK
We had a great evening at the Awards dinner, and had some interesting leads from the Expo. All in all a successful event, so well done to you and your team. Please send over the information for the event next year. We would certainly be interested.Mike Keating, Director at Salvis Group
