Sutton Chamber Hosts One Green Planet

Sutton Chamber hosts eco exhibition and seminar for business to share and exchange green tips as it prepares to produce Greening Business Directory.

Sutton, United Kingdom, August 18, 2010 --( As the oil reserves on the planet are depleted daily and disasters such as the BP Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico attracts international attention, businesses are seeking various means of reducing their energy bills. To this end, The Sutton Chamber of Commerce in the London borough of Sutton, Surrey is hosted One Green Planet, an ECO exhibition and seminar to help companies address this issue. Ten speakers spoke at this event.

Sutton Chamber of Commerce invited participants at this event to share practical energy tips in a general discussion segment. In addition, businesses in the energy conservation business had the opportunity to introduce their products and services that reduce the costs of utility bills, enhance energy usage, improve building efficiency, reduce carbon output and help businesses to ‘go green.’ Vice chair of Sutton Chamber Paul Cawthorne commented, “We believe that this is the first event taking place under David Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ challenge for Sutton.” From this meeting of minds, the Chamber hopes to produce a Greening Business Directory. One Green Planet was held at the Sutton Tennis Academy, Rose Hill Park and was free to businesses.

There was a networking element to the event as businesses from the surrounding boroughs of Kingston, Reigate and Banstead, Mitcham, Merton, Bromley and Croydon attended. The event attracted businesses as diverse as logistics, energy conservation, transportation, lighting, IT solutions, marketing and even a company involved in the fashion industry and culminated with a free lunch, compliments of Sutton Chamber and the Sutton Tennis Academy.
