Starting an Environmentally Conscious Business  Workshop

With environmental responsibility headlines hitting the media on a daily basis it’s becoming hard to ignore the importance of sustainability. Taking environmental sustainability into consideration at this critical stage of starting your new business can give a competitive advantage as well as provide moral satisfaction that you are doing your bit.



We are now seeing the impact that public sentiment and opinion can have if a business doesn’t keep up with the pace of change. Sustainability makes perfect business sense having positive social, environmental and economic impact, making businesses more resilient and profitable whilst all the while making them better for people and the planet. 


The Planet Mark Start is a collaboration between leading Sustainability Consultants – Planet First – & Bristol-based Business Support Organisation YTKO.

As a funded project, this programme offers attendees the opportunity to obtain the ‘Planet Mark Start Sustainability Certification’ – – by attending a morning-long Workshop session, and then making a sustainability pledge that embraces the ‘Measure, Engage, Communicate’ model.



The session particularly explores the Marketing, Branding & Communication opportunities that a Sustainability strategy can provide. To this end, delegates maybe interested in sourcing additional support in these areas through other business programmes in due course. 

What we will cover:

  • What is sustainability

  • The business benefits of sustainability

  • Developing a sustainability plan within your new business

  • Marketing sustainability

  • Future opportunities


  • 09.30am – 10.00am – Networking and tea/coffee

  • 10.00am – 12.00pm – Workshop

  • 12.00pm – 12.30 – Close and networking

* Please be advised that while the workshop is free of charge, we will ask you to fill in a registration form and session feedback form. The Planet Mark Start is a fully funded program set up to support entrepreneurs and these bits of paperwork enable us to track our progress, measure our impact and continue providing you free services.

This programme is fully funded by ERDF to eligible businesses. For further details please visit –
