Unlocking Sustainability: The Surrey Hills Sustainable Business Showcase

16th January 2024

A Must-Attend Event for Surrey Businesses!

Surrey Hills Enterprises presents the annual Surrey Hills Sustainable Business Showcase on February 7th, 2024, from 6-9 pm at the Rik Medlik Building, Surrey University. This transformative event brings together local organisations offering insights, tools and techniques to adopt sustainable practices for business success as well as a greener future.

The Surrey Hills Sustainable Business Showcase aims to inspire and empower local businesses by focusing on discussions and insights that guide attendees to make practical, realistic sustainable choices. As the desire for sustainability grows among small businesses, the event dispels the notion that eco-friendly practices are daunting, showcasing evidence of increased bottom lines for organisations embracing eco-friendly values.

Attendees will experience a diverse range of Surrey-based organisations sharing firsthand experiences and success stories. This showcase goes beyond theoretical knowledge, emphasising the effective implementation of sustainable ideas with tools and techniques that will equip organisations to contribute to a sustainable future.

Leading-edge speakers will provide insights on navigating the sustainability transition, accessing funding for sustainability goals, marketing and promoting sustainability benefits, measuring sustainability impact, and effectively communicating and celebrating sustainability success in businesses.

Organised by Surrey Hills Enterprises, a community interest company committed to a robust local economy, tourism industry growth, and environmental sustainability, the event reflects their dedication to fostering a community prioritising sustainability. In addition, Surrey Hills Enterprises has awarded the Trade Mark Surrey Hills accreditation to over 200 organisations, symbolising local provenance, quality, and sustainability.

Wendy Varcoe, Executive Director of Surrey Hills Enterprises says “This event is a collective effort to empower businesses with the knowledge and tools to embrace sustainability and will dispel the misconception that sustainability is overwhelming. With insights from leading-edge speakers and experiences shared by businesses like Nutfield Dairy, Albury Organic Vineyard, Crumbs Brewery, and Coverwood Farm, this event is a unique opportunity to navigate the sustainability transition, access funding, market sustainability benefits, measure impact, and celebrate success.’
