Bristol 2015 launches Green Capital programme

Bristol 2015 has launched a programme of events, projects and summits for the city's year as European Green Capital, including a business engagement scheme.

The Go Green Business Engagement scheme for Bristol and the West of England is in the final stages of development and will be managed by Low Carbon South West in partnership with Business West.

James Durie, executive director at Business West, said: "Go Green is about being more resilient, saving money, making staff more engaged and motivated. It's about putting sustainability at the heart of business and why it makes good business sense."

It joins a range of events and summits that will run across the city in 2015, including the launch of Filwood Green Business Park in March, Solar Balloon in August, in which Cameron Balloons will reveal its first solar powered model and the Festival of Future Cities in November.

George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol, added: "This is a great start. It is an initial programme which really gives people a feel for what to expect during our year as European Green Capital.

"We're talking new jobs, exciting events, long-lasting environmental projects, better environmental education, more energy efficiency offers, more protection for green spaces and on-going improvements in our transport infrastructure."
