We're partnering with the Green Business Network (GBN) to launch a new green business collaboration for our businesses.

We're launching on Wednesday 6 October, between 2pm and 4pm, at The Forest Centre, Marston Moreteyne.

Find out more about the event, including the full event programme.

Find out how to book a place. It's free to attend and is open to all Central Bedfordshire businesses.

As a funding partner, we're supporting GBN, which operates across Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes, to introduce a package of business support to aid Central-Bedfordshire-based companies in their endeavours to become greener.

Our Executive Member for Transformation and Sustainability, Councillor Steve Dixon, will be giving a keynote speech at the event, talking about our plans and ambitions relating to climate change.

Councillor Dixon said:

We are delighted to be a funding partner to the great work the Green Business Network is doing to support businesses.

In our journey to becoming carbon neutral we are always looking at ways to make our service delivery more environmentally friendly and also understand businesses appreciate specialist support in helping build a more sustainable business.

Green Business Network Chair, Jacky Sherman, will be talking about the innovative Green Referral Network – Green Connectors.

You'll also have the opportunity to hear from other locally-based companies who've taken steps to reduce their carbon footprints and find out about what support is available from the Green Business Network.
