Did you know that behavioural change actually generates the most significant results and cost savings?

Here are examples of two recent training programmes we have run:

BFE020 Connecting Rural Producers to Urban Markets using Low Carbon Logistics, Distribution & SMART technologies

Client:  University of West of England (UWE) and Royal Agricultural University (RAU) 

Low Carbon Logistics and Distribution for Producers’ workshop was run by Sustain-Live on behalf of UWE & RAU Environmental iNet programme.  The iNet supports innovative small and medium enterprises in the South West to deliver environmental benefits.

BFE002Getting product to customers still poses one of the biggest challenges for rural producers; logistics must be cost effective, whilst meeting customer expectations in a highly competitive market place. All within a framework of the need to reduce carbon emissions and respond to rapidly changing legislation and technology. Meaning producers have to respond with increasing innovation and efficiency just to stay in business. This two day event explored low carbon challenges and opportunities for local producers and businesses.  We delivered a successful contract, fulfilling our business assist obligations for our client. All delegates were very pleased with the quality of the content and delivery.
