More and more customers want to buy from suppliers with sustainability at the heart of their business. Research has shown that sustainability has real business benefits when integrated into a firm’s operations including improved brand image and competitive advantage, increased productivity and profits, as well as reduced costs and waste.

In order to help businesses in the West Midlands maximise their opportunities by adopting sustainability best practice, the Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University is offering one-to-one health checks to help companies get to grips with their sustainability goals and to solve energy, waste and environmental challenges.

We are now offering bespoke one-to-one health checks to help your business:

  • Get to grips with your sustainability goals.
  • Solve energy, waste and environmental challenges. 
  • Use innovation to get the best out of your company resources.
  • Get knowledge to enter new green markets.

  • Meet your customer and investor demands to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.
  • Develop new, innovative, low carbon goods and services from waste.
