SUSTAINABILITY HEALTH CHECKS - HELP FOR BLACK COUNTRY BUSINESSES
More and more customers want to buy from suppliers with sustainability at the heart of their organisation.
Research has shown that sustainability has real business benefits when integrated into a firm’s operations including improved brand image and competitive advantage, increased productivity and profits, as well as reduced costs and waste.
In order to help businesses in the Black Country maximise their opportunities by adopting sustainability best practice, the Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University is offering one-to-one health checks to help companies get to grips with their sustainability goals and to solve energy, waste and environmental challenges.
During a 30-minute health check session, EBRI will discuss the particular sustainability challenge that the company is facing so that its team of experts can then devise a bespoke summary of their recommendations, research findings and other useful information to help the business.
This will be provided a few days later at no cost to qualifying companies.
STEPS TO WORK RECEIVE BRONZE ARMED FORCES AWARD
Employability support specialists, Steps To Work, have recently received the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award.
This follows on from the commitment they made in November of last year, when the Black Country based charity signed the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC).
Launched by the Ministry of Defence in 2014, the ERS recognises organisations from a wide range of industry sectors who pledge their support to those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, as well as their families and dependents.
With over 21 years’ experience of assisting local residents - including veterans and reservists - into employment, education and training, Steps To Work will actively promote and encourage other organisations to sign the AFC and become a Force’s friendly employer.
