Exeter: the South West’s most sustainable city

The Exeter Chamber of Commerce’s April Networking lunch will be held at The Rougemont Hotel By Thistle, taking place on Wednesday 17 April 2013.  The theme of this lunch is ‘Exeter: the South West’s most sustainable city’.

The lunch will bring together the intellect behind Exeter Chamber’s most sustainable businesses to one place. The event will give 100+ businesses the opportunity to ask John Rigby (Chairman of the Low Carbon Task Force), Adam Fox-Edwards (MD of the illustrious Arundell Arms and winner of the 2012 DEBI sustainable business award) and Ewan McClymont (Director of Corporate Development for Bishop Fleming) what sustainability means to them, how it has impacted on their businesses in practical terms and their vision for Exeter’s future. It will be chaired by Chris Lorimer (Director of Enterprise at Bicton College and Chair of the Exeter Sustainable Business Network, a sub-group of the Chamber).

Chris said “putting sustainability at the heart of your business strategy is sound business sense – helping competiveness, profitability and creating greater alignment with our marketplace.  This event will give attendees an overview of how to begin that process and some easy to use practical advice.”

This themed networking lunch ties in with the launch of ESBN’s new website - www.sustainableexeter.co.uk.

Exeter Sustainable Business Network (ESBN) is a sub-group of Exeter Chamber which is supported by Lloyds TSB, the Environment Agency, E.ON, Travel Devon and Zero 2050. ESBN aims to educate business about sustainability, its opportunities and why it matters.
