Surrey can be the catalyst of a UK green jobs boom

Surrey businesses are being urged to find out how to make their businesses more sustainable – as tens of thousands of local jobs will go green by 2030.  


Figures from Surrey County Council and the Surrey Chamber of Commerce suggest that over 3,600 jobs a year will become green jobs between now and the end of the decade.  

Now, the Institute for Sustainability at the University of Surrey is offering businesses help to get there at an event later this month.  

The Institute for Sustainability and non-profit network, Surrey B Corp, are co-hosting 'The Journey to Better Business' event on 27 March. Over 200 local firms, academics, and sustainability professionals will attend to learn how to improve the environmental impact of their businesses. 

We're delighted to bring the power of research together with the force of business. The Institute for Sustainability has the academic expertise. B Corp brings the practical solutions. Surrey has all the ingredients needed to turn the region's economy green. Sally Pritchett, CEO of Something Big and event organiser (Surrey B Corp)

The event takes place in Guildford on 27 March, 1400-1800. For details and tickets, please visit our website.
