Cornwall Chamber of Commerce are holding their fourth Sustainability Conference at the Lighthouse Cinema in Newquay on the 25th June.
The Conference features a fantastic range of industry experts speaking across topics including Renewable Energy, Water, Plastic and much more, with handpicked keynote sessions designed to provide a wide ranging voice on the current issue of sustainability.
Thanks to the support of St Austell Printing Company, this is a free event for business owners or employees charged with addressing the issue of sustainability.
Speakers at the event include John Henry Looney (Sustainable Direction); Nigel Ponsford (South West Water); Clean Cornwall; Emily Stevenson (Beach Guardian) and Tom Kay (Finisterre).
Matt Bunt from St Austell Printing Company said: “We’re very pleased to in a position to sponsor the Conference.
“Our commitments to sustainability and the environment are at the heart of our business. We want to do everything we can to help other businesses and organisations to embrace the most sustainable ways of working and encourage conversations. That’s why events such as the Conference are very important.”
St Austell Printing Company was named one of the region’s most sustainable businesses in November’s Cornwall Sustainability Awards and last year invested in one of Cornwall’s largest roof-based solar panel arrays. SAPC have also been chosen as a preferred printing supplier for Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
Beth Mayman, SAPC Operations Manager said: “When we built our new sustainable Factory, Conference Centre and Business Park in 2013 we made a conscious decision that we wanted to embrace all elements of sustainability across our business. From generating our own green energy to recycling 100% of our paper waste and creating lush gardens and surroundings to help local wildlife to thrive; there are dozens of initiatives we have in place to ensure we are as sustainable and responsible as we can be.”
Laura Barnes from Cornwall Chamber of Commerce said: “We are a not-for-profit organisation which represents the voice of business in Cornwall. We are entirely privately funded, which means we can only carry out the important work we do with the support and generosity of our business partners and sponsors.
“St Austell Printing is a fine example of a company making great strides in sustainability, having won the Best Managed Medium Business award in the Cornwall Sustainability Awards in 2018. This means their sponsorship of this award is the perfect fit.”
