Guest speakers at an event aimed at small and medium-sized businesses next week include representatives from the Eden Project in Cornwall and the Adnams brewery in Southwold.
The Norfolk sustainability event is being organised by Lloyds Bank to encourage SMEs to take a positive approach to sustainability and to demonstrate that it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.
The guests will include Tom Stevens, of the Eden Project, who will be talking about how to motivate staff, and Andy Wood, who will talk about challenges faced by Adnams and how they overcame them.
Speakers from Lloyds Bank include Paul Turner, group director of community ＆and sustainable business, who will talk about how world events such as population growth, energy security and the scarcity of raw materials will impact UK businesses and how sustainability can add value to a business. He will also highlight the changes made within Lloyds and achievements made so far.
Steve Elsom, area director, of Lloyds Bank, said: “I am excited to be hosting a sustainability event for SMEs in the Norfolk area. We want to encourage businesses to take a pro-active approach to sustainability by focussing on the benefits – reducing overhead cost and improving profitability whilst future proofing their business and helping the environment.
“Our aim is for all our guests to take away a few actions that they can implement into their business.”
The event is being held at the Green Britain Centre in Swaffham and runs from 8.30am to 10.30am.
