Business Forum



Date: 12 January 2005 - Time: 5.45pm

Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce are hosting their first business event in 2006 at The Thistle Hotel, Brighton. Doors open at 5.45pm for a 6.20pm start on Wednesday 11th January. Sustainbility is the theme.

From representing less than 1% of the running costs of a typical business, energy costs are set to have an increasingly significant impact on the bottom line.

The panel of guest speakers includes Thurstan Crockett, Head of Sustainability & Environmental Policy at Brighton and Hove City Council, and John Packer, MD at Packer Associates, plus Mischa Hewitt, a Project Manager with the Low Carbon Network.

Thurstan Crockett will talk first at 6.30pm. He says ignoring the overwhelming evidence that the climate is changing is not an option as this affects us all. John Packer follows, and he will describe how Chamber Members can realistically reduce their energy bills and contribute directly to the bottom line. He says: "Improve your image, save the planet - and increase profits". He will refer to new building regulations in April 2006 and highlight the  opportunities that come with a heightened awareness to sustainability and energy use within the business community.

"The ideas and technologies in Earthship Brighton offer a glimpse of a luxury low carbon lifestyle" says Mischa Hewitt. "They are easily transferred - the challenge is to move them into the mainstream, and inspire people to tackle climate change at home and at work". Mishca will summarise the 'Earthship Project' development in Falmer, and show the ways it can relate to domestic households and businesses.

BHCC President, Clifford Conway says; "This is a great chance to listen to the experts and ask your questions". Non-members and other guests pay £7 per ticket where space allows. Further information and all reservations are via Jessica Rosenthal on 0845 230 3016 or
