Avery & Brown and Accelar have pooled their expertise on sustainability to produce a policy briefing on the Green Business Transition.

This policy briefing forms part of Enterprise M3 LEP’s Green is Good programme, which aims to actualise the Low Carbon, High Growth vision for the region. The policy briefing also brings to life exemplar businesses that demonstrate the beneficial journey of a green transition and looks at some of the characteristics of, and rationale for, a place-based, regenerative future economy.

Chris Fry, Managing Director at Accelar, based in Fleet, said, “With so much activity already underway across Hampshire and Surrey’s green economy, this briefing provides a timely 360 degree view as well as pinpointing specific ways of enabling more businesses to drive the green transition.”

Tim Brown, Co-Founder of Farnham-based Avery & Brown said, “Avery & Brown, in collaboration with Accelar and EM3 LEP, is proud to have played an integral role in planning, writing and designing this comprehensive Green Business Transition policy briefing. As a sustainable marketing agency dedicated to regenerative business practices, we are committed to accelerating the green transition and supporting businesses on their journey to Net Zero and beyond.”

Sajid Butt, Head of Policy and Intelligence at EM3 LEP said, “This is a phenomenal piece of work by two highly regarded – and local - businesses. What they have done in a matter of weeks – from concept to end product – speaks volumes about their knowledge, expertise, creativity, diligence, and strategic mindset. This policy briefing is a thought-leading, dynamic, pragmatic framework for businesses across Hampshire, Surrey, and beyond to be inspired by and act on.

The strength of the region’s intellectual capital on sustainability cannot be underestimated. If we mobilise this effectively, it will reap substantive dividends for economic growth in a sustainable, inclusive, and innovative manner over the long term.”
