Sheffield Sustainability Network

How do I respond to the declared climate change emergency?

How can we shift our business practices to be more sustainable, in order to stay competitive?

How can I identify and prioritise sustainable solutions that are relevant and achievable for our charity?

As businesses and non-profits, how can we work together to help support both ourselves in prosperity and each other on a sustainable planet?

These are just some of the questions that Sheffield businesses, organisations, charities and residents face today. We see what is happening around us, but we don’t always know what to do.

Sheffield Sustainability Network was founded by three local business owners who had begun meeting regularly to exchange ideas on more sustainable ways of working. 

Their need for more knowledge and support inspired the creation of SSN, a platform in which local businesses and non-profit organisations can support each other in their goal of becoming more sustainable.
