West Berkshire Case Studies: Sustainable Businesses
We're showcasing some of the best in the district to inspire other businesses to follow in their footsteps
We wanted to showcase those who are already on their journey towards helping the district reach carbon neutrality. By finding out what actions these businesses have taken, and by hearing what benefits they have gained from these, we hope to encourage and inspire other local businesses to follow in their footsteps.
Webinar: What can local businesses do to go green?
Watch our webinar to hear from Sheepdrove Organic Farm, Cotswold Fayre and Thatcham Refillable about what they are already doing to help get the district closer to carbon neutrality, along with ideas and guidance for other businesses and residents in the district.
Webinar: Sustainable Hospitality
We invited Marston's Pub and Colline's Kitchen to hear how they are both improving their sustainability and work towards reducing emissions. By hearing from both a national pub chain, alongside a small local business renting their space, we hope to cover all different kinds of actions that businesses can look to take.
