Go Green, an initiative put in place to drive sustainability in the workplace is organising its first event in Bath on Wednesday 9th March at Bath Abbey.

Go Green, launched in February last year, is a collaboration between business leadership organisations Business West and Low Carbon South West and it was put in place to signpost organisations to resources that can help them be greener.

The evening event marks the official launch of Go Green in the historic city of Bath and is part of a wider roll out programme across the West of England to encourage more businesses in the region to improve their green credentials. 

Attendees at the event will hear from Bath Abbey and engineering firm BuroHappold as they unveil the Abbey’s initiatives to boost environmental sustainability. These include energy efficient lighting and the installation of an innovative new underfloor heating system fuelled by Bath’s ancient hot springs running beneath the city.

Amy Nicholass, Go Green Manager, said: “The event will be a great opportunity for Bath’s business community to hear from industry leaders and take away valuable hints and tips on energy management as well as learn more about the future for renewables and the possibilities they offer.

“Bristol’s year as European Green Capital was a great achievement and we want to involve everyone across the West of England to create a lasting legacy. Already more than 1,200 businesses have signed up to Go Green, including some in Bath and we hope to welcome more soon!”

Go Green is a tool open to every business, charity and public sector organisation who want to make a difference to their local environment.
