This episode asks entrepreneur, founder and managing director of one of the South’s leading award-winning chains of children’s nurseries, Tops Day Nurseries and Aspire Training what she expects from her suppliers. Cheryl’s sustainability journey began several years ago, in part to meet legislation yes – but, more importantly for her, to meet her own personal ethical standards. Her journey, she describes, is a partnership between her and her customers…the children and the parents.

 Review

What are you doing already? Whether the answer is something – or nothing we will provide a review of the potential of your business to run a more responsible operation. The potential to reduce your running costs, for example, or to help with smarter procurement and sourcing solutions and suppliers. We can guide you through the environmental management element of the tender process and, ultimately, help ensure you meet the changing expectations of your customers – and your workforce.

 Guidance

Our team is on hand to offer continued advice to support you in your corporate sustainability or social value journey. We are at the end of an email or phone, or we can join you for meetings.

 Workforce

Many companies find that engaging the workforce in their aspirations to become a more responsible business helps to ensure its success. That is where we come in, by organising;

  • Sustainability Days  Helping to engage your workforce through various exhibits, presentations and an interactive itinerary.
  • Lunch and Tell  These are mini 2-hour sessions towards staff engagement.
  • Training  We run an annual programme to accelerate your business and ensure it’s Fit for the Future.
  • Workshops  Half day or two-hour training sessions.

 Customer Hospitality

With running a more responsible business now as important as quality or excellent customer service, companies are keen to demonstrate their advancements in this field.  We support clients by enabling them to host half or full-day hospitality events, designed to suit them and the industry sector they operate within.  Each event is tailored to suit you and to enable you to keep within budget and, to ultimately ensure you attract and retain the right type of customer stay ahead of their competition.

 Expo

Clients are invited to join us at the annual event, The Big Sustainability Expo 2019 and to enjoy a complimentary drink in our Eco Coffee Lounge, as well as lunch in the venue’s restaurant Beefy’s run by Ian Botham.  This year the Expo will take place on the 8th October at the Hilton Ageas Bowl (Southampton).

Your 2022 Award Categories…Nominate NOW!

1. Bold move

Sometimes it takes a bold move from one company to push the boundaries on sustainability. This award will recognise organisations that can point to one truly risky, groundbreaking step they have taken to advance sustainability which could pave the way for other businesses.

2. Carbon and energy management

Reducing a companies’ emissions is key to meeting carbon reduction targets. This is an award for initiatives that take a holistic approach to measuring, managing, and reducing emissions.

3. Collaboration

An award for a project that breaks down traditional barriers. We are looking for examples of several partners working together in non-traditional ways towards a goal that delivers truly sustainable outcomes.

4. Communicating sustainability

Inspiring action on sustainability issues is key. We are looking for standout examples of campaigns that have engaged and entertained, eliciting action and leading to tangible shifts in behaviour.

5. Finance for good

Finance feeds into the world we are building and good financial models are a very important tool in making it more sustainable. This award is for an organisation that has shown leadership by developing financial models or tools that produce social, environmental, and business benefits.

6. Net Zero

It is no longer enough to do less bad. Progressive businesses are seeking ways to be regenerative in their activity. This award is for those businesses that are taking tangible steps towards making a net positive contribution to communities, society, and the environment.

7. Startup of the year

A startup is a company set up to solve a particular problem or challenge. They are companies associated with innovation, impact, and future thinking. This award celebrates early-stage companies with sustainability at their heart and an idea with the potential to scale up. To be eligible, companies must have started to trade between 1 January 2011 and 31 July 2015.

8. Waste

From circular principles applied to design, to projects achieving zero waste and remanufacturing initiatives, rethinking waste is vital. This award is for projects or products that are at the cutting edge of waste innovation.

9. Water Management

Water sustainability will be one of the defining challenges of our time. This award will recognise an organisation that can demonstrate its commitment to water sustainability through projects, technologies, designs or policies that improve water availability, access or quality.

10. The unsung hero of the year

The credit for sustainability initiatives tends to go to high-profile senior executives but the hard work involved in turning a vision into reality often goes unnoticed. The unsung hero of the year award is for an employee in the engine room of sustainability who has gone beyond the call of duty to drive change in their organisation.

Good luck everyone!
