About this Event

Join us at the greenest office building in Oxfordshire – the Eco Business Centre on the NW Bicester Eco Site – for our workshop on business and sustainability. This workshop teaches you how to drive innovation and efficiency, while putting the fight against climate change at the centre of your operation. Get started on using One Planet Living to create a sustainability action plan that your whole organisation can engage with, all within a stylish and modern Passivhaus Plus and BREEAM Excellent-rated building.

Oxfordshire Greentech and Cherwell District Council’s CPD-certified training will equip you with the skills and knowledge to transform your organisation and its sustainability performance, creating market opportunities.

What will I learn?

The ten One Planet Principles will be introduced as a simple and flexible solution to developing sustainability strategies. Compelling case studies will be used to explore the skills and approaches necessary to make change happen.

At the end of the morning you will have the outline of a sustainability strategy in place and have the opportunity to discuss the next steps with Bioregional’s experts.
