Enterprise

Enterprise Engagement Group

All enterprises need to be aware of how the climate and ecological emergency will impact their operations: adapting and becoming sustainable is good business. This is a message we need to promote across the county.

Each enterprise is unique and will need to create its own pathway to sustainability. While some organisations have already taken actions, others are less engaged.

The Enterprise Engagement Working Group aims to engage and inform enterprises across Shropshire about the climate and ecological emergency and foster a sense of urgency to take action. Also, to communicate the benefits of sustainability.

We need to do this on a large scale, quickly by:

Identifying early adopters that can share success stories, benefits and inspire others to actions

Deliver awareness raising presentations and provide a ‘customer journey’ for taking action

Build up links to resources and organisations that can support enterprises on their journey.
