Beyond Profit: thirty years of operating a green business
Tue 9 May 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
What do we mean by a green business, a sustainable business or a Net Zero business?
This talk will examine the unique characteristics of a green business, drawing on the example of The Green Stationery Company, which the speaker has been operating for over thirty years. The talk will cover qualitative rather quantitative environmental goals, a low turnover high margin business plan, shorter working hours and higher salaries, marketing with minimal advertising and zero selling, and “small is beautiful” principles.
Jay Risbridger, Director, The Green Stationery Co Ltd, former director of Ecotrade, the Green Party trading arm and creator of the Bath local currency. Jay also has a background in appropriate development technology and the recycled paper industry.
