Sustainability Education Channel Accelerates Corporate Carbon Reduction

The Southern Sustainability Partnership, organisers of The Big Sustainability Expo (Southampton), has launched a remote learning solution to super-charge careers and accelerate the carbon reduction of organisations in both the public and private sector.

The Corporate Sustainability Education Channel talks directly to professionals on their sustainability projects, as well as with suppliers of the products, technologies and services that are making their mark today. This new tool is designed to keep the business engine firing on all cylinders by enabling them to stay on top of running costs and their impact on the environment. Two key areas that will future-proof them and build resilience for whatever is around the corner.

Co-Director of The Southern Sustainability Partnership, Lynda Daniels explains: “The aim of the channel is to take the audience right to the heart of projects and solutions from the voices that are making them happen. Whether you are already on your sustainability journey, or realise this is no longer a topic you can avoid, or you are looking to work in the sector – this tool has been designed to vastly reduce research time saving you valuable time and money.”

Weekly interviews, interactive sessions, a community question and answer service and a professional development certificate for each session are all included. The Southern Sustainability Partnership, Co-Director Anita Potten adds: “This tool provides organisations with a level of confidence that enables them to speak directly with suppliers. And, just as importantly, to explain to those who manage budgets within their organisation why this investment is necessary. In short, it’s a win-win in the fight to reduce the carbon impact of our organisations.”

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.
