President's column: EcoPledge update - one change

20 November 2020

Many of you will know that Solihull Chamber’s EcoPledge was launched back in March and has been working through the Covid crisis to raise awareness, learn from, and share best practice that could enable businesses and organisations to make one change that will benefit the environment, and potentially reduce costs, writes Robert Elliot, president of Solihull Chamber. 

So this week I’m highlighting three members of Solihull Chamber who have stepped up and can offer resources and solutions to make us more sustainable. 

Maddie Booth is Sustainability Officer at Solihull College and University Centre.  Funded by the European Social Fund, and part of the college’s Business Elevator Project, they can offer free sustainable consulting services available for 1-1 support helping you become a more sustainable business or indeed saving you money.  You may have already recognised the issue? 

Maddie and her team can help with the solution.

Irene Watkinson is based at Aston University with the Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) and have joined Solihull Chamber in support of the Eco Pledge. 

They are running “low carbon challenge consultations” to help organisations develop new goods and services particularly developing solutions to waste material from their businesses. 

EBRI’s online support sessions are currently focusing around agricultural waste, brewing and distilling, buildings, food and drink, plastics, wood and cardboard.

Jason Perry runs Electric Centre in Solihull.  As a family business he recognises the importance of saving energy, and reducing Co2 emissions.  Sustainability and cost saving. 

Jason and his team have embraced Solihull Chambers Eco Pledge and are now offering businesses a free survey of your existing electrical assets and machinery.  The survey will help identify where changes in use, or equipment, will make a difference. 

Jason can be contacted via jason.perry@electriccentre.com

One change, that is all the EcoPledge aims for – one change could lead to many more – but start working in the right direction and change will happen.

Watch out for further updates and opportunities to promote the EcoPledge.
