Here you will find inspiring and engaging examples of thought leaders in the Bristol and West of England business community who are already going green and seeing the benefits.

Case studies provide details of how and why changes were made in a particular business. Maximum benefit from these can be gained when viewed in conjunction with actions suggested in the Go Green Tool.
On the right hand side of the page you can select case studies by pillar such as Sustainable Sourcing or Travel and Transport.
Remember – if your business has made changes that others could learn from you can submit a case study and your company could appear here too.
