WATCH BACK: The official launch of the Green for Micro Programme which took place on  

Monday, March 1st 2021 at 9.30am!

Sustainability is often quite a theoretical concept and many small businesses just don't know where to start. This practical 'how to' event will help you to 'Green' your business and benefit from practical guidance on how to make your business more sustainable.

We're taking the theory away and just bringing this down to practical action steps for business. Discover the benefits of doing so from business owners who have already done it.

Meet a selection of SMEs from around the country who have introduced green principles into their business. Learn how to market your green business credentials as a unique selling point.

You will also hear about the new Local Enterprise Office 'Green for Micro' supports. This programme is designed to provide small businesses with tailored expert advice on how to drive sustainability. Qualifying SMEs will access two days of intensive mentoring including a sustainability audit and action plan, designed to help "green" your business.
