Bevan Brittan has become a sponsor of the Festival of Sustainable Business, a major event taking place in Bristol this September. The festival is dedicated to promoting, celebrating and helping businesses progress in their sustainability efforts.

The festival will include a major exhibition of businesses showcasing initiatives that are helping to create a more sustainable Bristol region. Supporting the exhibition will be ten seminars delivered by industry experts on a range of topical subjects.

Bevan Brittan is sponsoring the seminar on Sustainable Construction. The firm has a comprehensive housing practice, working with local authorities, housing associations, developers and the construction sector. The team advises clients in developing plans to meet the UK’s housing needs and building sustainable communities, including affordable housing, community facilities and sustainable energy usage.

Bevan Brittan was a sponsor of last year’s highly successful Bristol Housing Festival and a finalist in this year’s Bristol Life and Bristol Property Awards.

Jonathan Turner, partner and Head of Housing at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Festival of Sustainable Business, which looks set to be one of the events of the business calendar in Bristol this year. Sustainability matters to us all and is a key issue within construction and housing in particular. We have advised on many projects with a strong sustainability footprint. We look forward to participating at the festival.”

Rosemary Jago, partner and Head of the Bristol office at Bevan Brittan, said: “The Festival of Sustainable Business is an exciting prospect, and another example of Bristol’s progressive and dynamic agenda. At Bevan Brittan, we aim to play a full role in the business life of the city and so are very happy to be supporting the festival and sponsoring the Sustainable Construction session.”

Alan Bailey, Director of The Future Economy Group organising the festival, commented: “We are very grateful to Bevan Brittan for supporting the festival. Sustainability is one of the top issues facing businesses – and society – today. With the recent announcement of Bristol’s 2030 carbon neutrality target, now is the time to learn about sustainable technologies and services which can help the city and beyond in achieving its goal. We hope the festival will be a significant contributor to helping businesses in the journey.”
