Business Environment Network launching in November

Monday 24th November will see an exciting new business partnership network launched by the Meres and Mosses scheme to bring together businesses in north Shropshire and south Cheshire. The Meres and Mosses Business Environment Network aims to enhance the environmental performance and profitability of local businesses, which will allow businesses to reduce their environmental impact on the Meres and Mosses landscape.

The network is already well supported by the Tudor Griffiths Group, Sciquip, Bridgnorth Aluminium and Grocontinental. The chair of the network, Adrian Platt of Befesa UK, a company based near Whitchurch said of the scheme: “Getting involved in the Meres and Mosses Business Environment Network will allow Befesa to work with other local businesses, to share knowledge and boost competitiveness whilst reducing environmental impact”.

The Meres and Mosses is an area of north Shropshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire and hold a landscape formed by the glacial processes of the last ice age around 10,000 years ago. They contain the third largest raised lowland peat bog in Britain and specialist species of wildlife including Britain’s largest spider and the endangered white-faced darter dragonfly.

Businesses joining the network will have access to advice and will benefit from developing relationships with other local businesses to work towards improving employee wellbeing, understanding of environmental regulation and delivering Corporate Social Responsibility agendas.

Tom Hayek, programme manager of the Meres and Mosses Landscape Partnership Scheme stated “this new network will bring together local businesses for their own benefit and will demonstrate the commitment of local business to working sustainably, while enhancing their own profitability.”

The network will launch on Monday 24th November between 11am and 2pm at the Hill Valley Hotel and Spa in Whitchurch, when businesses will be invited to listen to some of the companies already leading the way in demonstrating environmental best practice.
