Using ethical finance is one way of making your environmental and social commitment known and as business owners this can be an effective way to attract investment, boost your reputation with customers and improve your chances when selling to large firms or public-sector organisations.

Jon Gibbins has spent the last 18 months integrating sustainability into his small digital company and has written a series of short webinars to help others in North Somerset do the same. Pairing Jon’s training experience with his passion for addressing the climate emergency, the webinars will discuss the themes of sustainability, ethical finance and green technology, and include open discussion, toolkit suggestions, helpful advice and achievable changes you can start using today. Additional follow-up support is available to participants to help guide you in applying sustainability principles to your business and measure the impact this has on your business activities.

This workshop is provided free to participants with funding secured from Quartet Community Foundation’s Megawatt Community Energy Fund, funded by Bristol Energy Cooperative and Low Carbon Gordano. It forms part of North Somerset Council’s, working in partnership with the West of England Combined Authority, ‘universal business support’ project providing support for start-ups, entrepreneurs and small businesses and is delivered by North Somerset Enterprise Agency.
