How we are supporting a Greener Solent
We set out our own commitment to improving the environmental well-being of the Solent in our Assurance Framework in section 2.4 – in it we state that we are committed to ensuring that our activity is sustainable. We have made a range of pledges to formalise this commitment, including;
- Using sustainable and plastic-free marketing collateral wherever possible,
- Offsetting emissions for all travel of Board and staff members;
- and prioritising the use of easily accessible event and meeting venues.
As part of this we have been supporting and funding a huge range of projects and initiatives from right across the Solent region that have a positive impact on the environment.
We have listed some examples below.
By combining compliance issues with energy efficient measures that conserve the earth’s resources, a business can become more efficient, and reduce their overall costs.
SMEs can take action by signing up, and in doing so will be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign. Join governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that share the same mission.
In an ever changing landscape and environment, making your business environmentally friendly has never been so important. Here we set out examples of the support that is available, how can you access funding and advice to help you adopt sustainable practices and become greener.
The Solent is part of the South West Energy Hub set up in late 2018. They work with organisations and communities across the South West and the Solent region, to identify, develop and implement low carbon energy projects.
