Northern Inland sustainable business forum in Bingara next week

August 23, 2013

An innovative regional forum focussed on sustainable business will be held at The Roxy Theatre in Bingara on Wednesday August 28. The Northern Inland Sustainable Business Forum has been designed to provide training on the particular needs of 50 new NISBN Members, as well as the needs of existing Sustainability Advantage Members in the region.

“The Forum marks the official launch of a new NISBN business sustainability program,” said Tim Cotter, Chair of the NISBN Steering Committee. “The program is innovative by being member-driven with a focus on their practical business sustainability needs and priorities.”

The Forum will be in the style of a mini-conference, incorporating business sustainability training, workshops and networking opportunities. The Forum is fully catered and free of charge to new and existing NISBN Members and guests.

“NISBN has now completed a research project which identified the business sustainability priorities and needs of this core group of 50 Members,” added Cotter.

“The Forum program will provide training and workshops which are tailored to meet these needs, for businesses just beginning to address sustainability through to those which are quite advanced.” Funding for the Forum, including sustainability trainers and facilitators, has been provided by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (NSW OEH).

“We are looking forward to commencing this innovative new program,” said Richard Birdsey, NISBN Steering Committee Member for NSW OEH.

“This is likely to build on the significant environmental and financial gains already achieved by Sustainability Advantage members over the last three years. We are confident that new members will be interested in the potential to achieve similar benefits for their business.” The Forum will run from 10am to 3:30pm. Registration is required at
