Reducing carbon with Katherine Piper from Future Leap, captured as part of the Zero Carbon Tour.

Our story

by Katherine Piper from Future Leap - Zero Carbon Tour interview

We try to help businesses progress as fast as possible on their sustainability journey. We have set up our first carbon-neutral, sustainable business hub on Gloucester Road in Bristol. We have made a commitment to remove the gas boilers; we have put in air-source heat pumps and a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system so we can be as low-carbon as possible. Our flooring is made out of ghost fishing nets, our chairs are 3D-printed out of crisp wrappers; we are really trying to show innovative, sustainable design within this space.

The major benefit of doing this is preserving the planet – as Mark Carney says, those who do not adapt will go bankrupt without question. Sustainability is a fun way of doing business, as you bring everybody along with you and move in the same direction.

Our advice

Naturally, the advice I would give is to join the Future Leap Network. We put on weekly events on different sustainability-related topics, so if you are not sure about something, we will have it covered at some point in our weekly events programme. Come and experience the Future Leap (award-winning!) sustainable business hub, too.
