REDUCE RUNNING COSTS . IMPROVE PROCESSES . CUT CARBON IMPACT

We understand that when you decide to take time out of your organisation it must be productive. To ensure you achieve the most from the time we have organised an event packed with activities. From dedicated workshops to more than 80 different exhibits, informative and inspiring keynote speakers, demonstrations to inspire ideas and an uncomfortable truth zone.  All aimed at guiding you to take action on the increasingly important issue of Environmental Management and the rising cost of running your organisation.

In short, let’s tackle climate change at a commercial level, no matter how big or how small our organisations may be.

See below for travel and hotel details.

This is not a CPD registered event, however, we do offer visitors who are registered on the day a certificate of attendance.  Please contact us following your visit. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment – IEMA is offering Exhibitors and Visitors a Membership discount when you REGISTER to attend.

The Big Green Event is about small businesses, big organisations and everything in between.

It is for those with no environmental management strategy at all, and those already well on their journey.

It’s about education, knowledge share and most of all it’s about YOU.

Because the knock on effect of thinking and acting greener – really does reduce costs!
