14 November + 4 December 2019

The Future Technology Centre, University of Portsmouth

Clean Growth Innovation is the development of any new and improved product, process, business model or service that reduces your impact on the environment.

Reducing your environmental impact isn’t just about protecting the planet for future generations. It drives down costs, increases profits, improves employee morale and gives your marketing a new angle.

At this FREE two day workshop you’ll do a deep-dive into your business under the expert guidance of Ian Trow, MD of Energy and Automation.

Run by Greentech South in partnership with the University of Portsmouth, Clean Growth UK’s South West Hub.

You’ll cover…

  • Energy saving and generation
  • Process automation
  • Clean and green new product and service innovation
  • Supply chain management
  • Business energy and productivity auditing
  • Staff engagement and business strategy

Free follow up sessions with Ian will also be available for those of you who want some 1-2-1 one day support in taking bigger projects forward.

“I believe business has an enormous innovative capacity to tackle all the environmental and social challenges we face”


Mike Barry, Head of Sustainable Business, Marks and Spencer
