Anita POTTEN
Director

Why The Southern Sustainaibility Partnership?

With collaboration at its heart, we set up The Southern Sustainability Partnership in 2015 to help to drive the message that operating under a more environmentally focussed strategy, with more socially conscious values is key to the future of your organisation. Anita has extensive experience in the field of telecoms, sales and project management for both private businesses and large public organisations including the NHS. Pulling on her knowledge, she assessed the requirements of the customer and matched their needs to the expertise required to get the job done. Adopting good telecommunications technologies reduces the need for face to face interaction, therefore reducing the carbon footprint of a business - this became a passion and led to the development of the partnership.

 

Lynda DANIELS
Director

Why The Southern Sustainaibility Partnership?

Operating under a more environmentally focussed strategy, with more socially conscious values is key to the future of an organisation. It was sheer frustration that led to the development of the company based on the fact that so many initiatives and groups telling you what to do, without offering a firm platform from which to help you to do so. Lynda has extensive PR and marketing experience in the electronics assembly sector, travelling the world in support of organisations working in this sector. Following a move to the renewable energy sector, she found her passion for environmental management and social value and started a network where she met her co-director Anita - and was asked to join various steering groups which are still supported today.
