In less than two weeks’ time, Bristol’s inaugural Festival of Sustainable Business will take place in the city centre.

The Festival, on 17th September 2019, is set to be the most significant event to celebrate environmental businesses in the South West region.

The Festival will also host a fantastic, ‘sustainable’ Gala Dinner on the evening of the 17th – with the opportunity to network with Ed Davey (the Right Honourable Sir Edward Davey MP), who will speak at the Dinner.

Sir Ed Davey’s previous roles include Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and he is currently Shadow Cabinet member for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

On the Fesitval Sir Ed comments: “Britain’s future economic strength must be built on sustainable business. There’s been real progress in recent years, which Bristol’s brilliant Festival celebrates. Yet we need to do so much more – and that’s why this event is so important.”

Other speakers will be Natalie Fee, the award-winning environmental campaigner, author, speaker and founder of City to Sea, a non-profit organisation running campaigns to stop plastic pollution at source; and Mayor Marvin Rees, Bristol City Council.

Apart from the Gala Dinner, visitors can enjoy a huge range of activities at the Festival, including:

 A sustainable food zone
 A sustainable transport zone
 A superb programme of 10 seminars
