The Platform that Empowers Organisations to Change
We facilitate the introduction of organisations adopting more ethical strategies in corporate sustainability with leading suppliers from across the UK. This is achieved through a powerful events platform, consultancy and UK supplier directory to support both the public and private sectors. It is only by creating a platform for open discussion, the sharing of knowledge and the ability to see and touch the solutions available to you that change is made. And, as every business now knows, change is very much needed.
Celebrating its 5th anniversary, The Big Sustainability Expo is one of the UK's leading events dedicated to Corporate Sustainability and Environmental Management. Showcasing up to 100 exhibitors, keynote speakers, workshops.
The 2020 Big Green Conference helps senior business professionals establish the purpose and ambition to future-proof their organisations by adopting a greater understanding of how the commercial world is changing.

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 regional 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
It's great to work with TSSP and, it’s very much worth pointing out, that they are extraordinary organisers and their events attract the right kind of people and organisations towards making the world a better place.Managing Director, Readsters
We are delighted to work with The Southern Sustainability Partnership as we share the same ethos and values. We attended the Big Green Event Expo in October 2018 and can honestly say this is the best b2b event we have ever attended. We have met lots of new connections as part of our relationship and looking to growing this further.Managing Director, Evergreen Insurance
The Big Green Event 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 nearly 2 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 2019: 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 2019 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

Thank you ladies.Marc Smith, Managing Director GHS Group
