Advice: Sustainability, Low Carbon, NetZero Matters | Birmingham


At EBRI (Aston University) we run one-to-one sustainability sessions for businesses in Birmingham looking to reduce carbon footprint, and develop new revenue streams from waste materials.

The Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) is a world-class centre for sustainability innovation. We develop solutions to help businesses and governments achieve Net Zero targets, and turn waste materials into new sustainable products. 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 maximise their opportunities by adopting sustainability best practice, we are offering one-to-one health checks to help companies in Birmingham get to grips with their sustainability goals and to solve energy, waste and environmental challenges.

We now offer 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.

Our health checks can help you discover ways to:
– Reuse, recycle or reduce your waste.
– Meet your customer and investor demands to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.
– Develop new, innovative, low carbon goods and services from waste.
– Link into the ever expanding green industry supply chains, such as energy-from-waste, energy systems and bioproducts.
– Enhance your energy systems.

During a 30 minute health check session, EBRI will discuss the particular sustainability challenge that the company is facing so that its team of experts can then devise a bespoke summary of their recommendations, research findings and other useful information to help the business.

This will be provided later at no cost to qualifying companies*.

There is no charge for eligible businesses to take up this offer*
