The Future Economy Group’s Carbon Neutrality Journey

  • Future Leap 1-3 Gloucester Road Bristol, BS7 8AA (map)

In January 2019, we at The Future Economy Group made a commitment to being carbon neutral by 2020.

The Future Economy Group offers a range of environmental services, including consultancy, recruitment, environmental products and weekly business networking and knowledge sharing events. As such, we felt it only right that we lead the way and show our commitment towards sustainability by taking this pledge.

We would like to share our progress with you! You are invited to our new £1.5m carbon neutral Sustainability Hub, ‘Future Leap’ to learn about the decisions we have made in retrofitting a 1930s building, to celebrate the commitment we make to ensuring positive health and wellbeing and to understand the tools and technologies we have used to measure and reduce our carbon footprint.

The Future Economy Group would like to share this learning so as to help other businesses in our Network to progress their sustainability journeys. Please do get in touch if your business would also like to share the sustainability initiatives and we shall try to accommodate you also presenting at this or other events in our carbon neutrality series.
