somerset business climate summit 2022

Binit were pleased to be invited to exhibit and attend the second Somerset Business Climate Summit on 21st September 2022. We heard from brilliant businesses; The Field Works, South West Manufacturing Advisory Service (SWMAS) ,Thatcher’s Cider, New Leaf Design, My Carbon Coach and Trees for Good Causes. The event was positive and uplifting as businesses shared with each other methods of best practice and encouragement of how we can help each other towards achieving our Net Zero journey.

Here our takeaways:

  1. Start Small: It can be overwhelming to undertake a large project to change your business or personal practices. Focus on one aspect you would like to improve on, like producing less waste.
  2. Don’t be afraid to ask for help: If you have something specific in mind, there is always a person or another business that can help. For waste management and consultancy, you can ask us. If you’d like to off-set your carbon footprint locally, plant a tree with Trees for Good Causes. If you are looking for resources, check out the Small Business Sustainability Hub by FSB. There are many more resources out there and someone will be able to guide you in the direction that you would like to take.
  3. It takes time: Most businesses are setting goals of what year they would like to achieve Net Zero, but like all good things, it takes time. Go at it at your own pace. (We are personally aiming for 2030).
