Green Business Network

Welcome to the home page of the Green Business Network (GBN). GBN is an independent, business-led, membership-based local environmental charity working with businesses, and related organisations in Bedfordshire, Luton, Milton Keynes and neighbouring areas.

The organisation is led by a Steering Group and Board of Trustees from local business, supported by representatives from Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire Councils, the Environment Agency and the Chamber.

Much of that support is either part- or fully-funded through Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire Councils. This enables GBN to provide an extremely cost-effective, impartial service to members.

The strength of GBN is in its membership. Managers from a variety of business sectors and business sizes, each with a range of experience and skills, work together to help each other exchange information, adopt best practice and make savings by taking advantage of free services and training.

A growing number of businesses are finding that improving their environmental performance is leading to surprising benefits. In addition to legal compliance, pollution prevention and continual improvement, these include reduced waste, lower utility bills, better processes, improvements in PR and increased profits.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Network and to helping you become a truly sustainable business.
