'Empowering Environmentalism' is spearheaded by Jess Carter, committed environmentalist, project manager, trainer and community engagement specialist. Jess and her team of collaborators support individuals, teams and communities to put the Earth first in their work and lifestyles. We take a holistic view of sustainability and guide organisations and individuals to ensure that environmental impact is a priority at work, at home and everything in between.
Where once you might not have known where to start when it comes to environmental best practice, we are here to support you, your team or community to prioritise environmental values whilst supporting you through impactful transformation with minimal disruption. Our courses and memberships provide the ideal platform for confidence in achieving and maintaining sustainable success to enable you to thrive whilst having a positive impact on our fragile planet.
Environmentalist and experienced project manager who has explored environmental law and trained in ecology and conservation. Jess has a flair for community engagement, communications and coordination. Perceptive, creative, bold and enthusiastic.
Despite being relative newcomers to the sector, we have been working hard to pilot and trial various approaches to sustainability. We are now transitioning to delivering the majority of our work via online workshops and memberships but can still offer a tailored package of sustainability coaching support. Please contact us to plan a suitable offering to fit the needs of your organisation.
Inspired by a talk at a Chambers of Commerce presentation, we linked up with GA Solicitors and have created a workshop that will be delivered to all 90 members of staff on the benefits of reducing single use plastic and waste in the workplace.
Sustainability support -
With regular meetings and an action planning workshop, we have worked together with the team at Marsha Miles Consultancy to research their supply chain, initiate sustainable packaging solutions and ensure there is a sustainability strategy that is fit for purpose as the organisation rebrands and regularly communicates sustainable progress with their supporters.
Small business support -
We co-created an action plan for sustainable success which enabled Villages in Action to trial various sustainable initiatives.
Supporting communities -
We have been commissioned by Broadclyst Parish Council to support community leaders to prioritise sustainable actions in the community. We collected survey data from the community and will be delivering an all day workshop to make a plan on how to make sustainable progress across this vibrant and diverse suburb of Exeter.
Action planning -
We are working closely with the managers of Skern Lodge to improve environmental impact. So far they have organised a water audit and saved fresh water by using grey water to wash down websites, taken on an apprentice to support the sustainability action plan, started working closely with wetsuit and equipment suppliers to investigate lifecycle analysis, trialling new materials and recycling solutions and wr are working closely with the senior leadership team to make smart choices for the future.
Talks and presentations -
We can often be found presenting our ideas and support packages at business forums and networking sessions including the Chambers of Commerce, Low Carbon Hubs and to students at education establishments. We are glad to have been invited to speak to Global Sustainability Solutions students at Exeter University.
Balancing the needs of business whilst positively impacting the natural environment requires effective and sustainable change to meet our targets for net zero and beyond.
Our mission is to support organisations to make transformational change and put sustainability at the heart of their operations.
Our vision is that collectively UK-based organisations have a net positive impact on the natural environment by committing to long-term sustainable best practice.
