Why did we become MMBEn supporters?

Initially to have open discussions with likeminded businesses within a local network that have similar challenges, ensuring legislative demand is achieved but also developing and investing its commitment to the local environment including native habitat and wildlife within its site.

What do you hope to gain from being an MMBEN supporter?

  • Opportunity to network with other businesses
  • Sharing best practice with other businesses
  • Promoting business involvement in local environmental issues
  • Delivering environmental improvements for our business
  • Learning about sustainability and the environment
  • To show we care about the communities that we operate in

We have been provided with greater access and an understanding of environmental issues across a wide spectrum. As well as improved access to other working groups and the ability to share ideas with how companies have overcome similar challenges. We have also gained access to environmental studies, alternatives and new initiatives which may have not been explored previously and finally, a greater understanding of the meres and mosses, its heritage and what the future holds for this important heritage.
