5th Anniversary of South Coast’s Leading Corporate Sustainability Expo

2020 marks the 5th anniversary of the South Coast’s leading Expo dedicated to addressing corporate sustainability. Based in Southampton, The Big Sustainability Expo 2020 will open its doors again on the 6th October to a packed itinerary of products, services, technologies, experts and innovations making their mark today.

Organisers “The expo provides the most powerful argument in the region for following a corporate sustainability strategy, for both the public and private sectors. It has never been more important to the continued success of an organisation to put corporate sustainability at the top of the agenda. Customer expectation has changed, radically. It began with large organisations and meeting the demands of legislation. Today, the business case is proven for organisations of all size and type, or risk the future of your organisation as the need for supply chain transparency applies to businesses of all size and type.

The Expo is where organisations will learn how to significantly reduce running costs, improve processes, boost the perception of their brand and reduce their impact on the environment.  

Free to attend, the Expo continues to attract exhibitors and visitors from across the UK, with its easy to reach location and ample free parking. To get in front of leading experts in a full programme of workshops in the 2020 LearnZone and to meet up to 100 different suppliers with solutions and expertise to support your own step by step strategy towards future-proofing your organisation. 

You can register to join the Hilton Ageas Bowl, between 9.30am and 4.00pm at www.southernsustainabilty.co.uk

Learn how this pub is going green with its festive meals

As published by Dorset Echo 

DORSET, UK brewers Hall & Woodhouse has invested in plastic-free Christmas crackers this festive season.

The Christmas crackers and its contents to be used at parties in pubs owned by the Blandford brewery – including the Duchess of Cornwall Inn in Poundbury, Dorset are made from FSC accredited sustainable sources and are fully recyclable.

This is part of a larger and ongoing strategy that the leading independent Dorset brewer has implemented in all of its pubs across the south, with the aim of working towards being a carbon neutral business.

So far the brewers have prevented more than two million plastic straws and stirrers going to landfill since introducing paper straws in 2017. Last year Hall & Woodhouse launched a range of reusable, collapsible Stojo coffee cups that are available for customers to buy.

Mark James, director at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “Over the past couple of years, we have made a number of changes to our business to become ‘greener’ and help to reduce our carbon footprint. This ranges from solar panels at our Brewery, to LED lights in our pubs. This is about doing the right thing, and our plastic-free Christmas crackers are another small step in our green journey.”
