Background
James is extremely passionate about the environment and business and believes that collectively we can make a difference to the future of our environment, businesses and communities. He is the Founder of Sustainable Business Services; working in both business sustainability and environmental efficiencies for over six years has combined his passions, helping him support businesses to become more environmentally aware.

Climate change is happening — in fact the UK Government has announced a climate emergency. Our Government was the first major economy to publish a net-zero 2050 target. This target is already having implications across the public sector and large business reporting and procurement policies, with expected future legislation to come across all business types. James provides expert advice to organisations about implementing an environmental policy backed by carbon foot print data from a simple dashboard aligned to the United Nations Climate Change Race to Zero campaign. This data and policy then enables businesses to create reductions targets and benefit from:

  • Reduced operational costs;
  • Competitive advantage;
  • Customer loyalty;
  • Increased resilience;
  • Investor confidence;
  • Attracting the best talent.

Sustainable Business Services works with a wide range of businesses from hair and beauty salons to manufacturers, from GP practices to gin distilleries and from home workers to multi-site organisations
