Developing Your Business Sustainability

How can we help you to develop your business sustainably?

Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce are working with partners to provide practical advice and support to local businesses. Our aim is to pull together in one place, information on a range of initiatives and ideas which you might find useful - we want to connect the dots to make your life easier.

In 2015/2016 we are focusing on a range of issues and looking for solutions to help you to create a more sustainable business. These include:

  • Addressing staff absence through improved health and well being
  • Supporting access to employment and reducing travel costs
  • Creating a competitive edge through improved environmental business practices/enhancing your Corporate and Social Responsibility profile
  • Reducing the need to travel through IT, flexible working and business continuity
  • Alternative options to reduce the costs of business travel in your organisation
  • Business opportunities – looking at the supply chain
  • Benefits Package – attracting and retaining the best people
