Ten of thousands of jobs across Surrey are set to go green by 2030 according to new figures from Surrey County Council and the Surrey Chambers of Commerce.

It works out to more than 3,600 green jobs every year, defined as those which have a direct, positive impact on the planet and drive sustainability.

This comes as the Institute for Sustainability at the University of Surrey gears up for The Journey to Better Business event later this month to help local businesses and organisations go green.

The event will take place at the institute’s own Sustainable Innovation Hub.

Nathalie Hinds, director of operations – innovation and partnerships at the Institute for Sustainability, said: “We launched the Sustainability Innovation Hub to help businesses transition to sustainable practices.

“Many organisations face the same challenges and don't know where to start. Together at the Hub, we can explore how to increase employee wellbeing, how to integrate nature-based solutions or review the efficiencies of a supply chain.

“This event will help local organisations shape a sustainability strategy that makes business sense for all, customers, employees, suppliers and the planet.”

More than 200 local firms, academics and sustainability professionals are expected to attend the event, co-hosted by non-profit network Surrey B Corp.

Sally Pritchett, CEO of comms agency Something Big and event organiser Surrey B Corp added: “We’re delighted to bring the power of research together with the force of business.

“The Institute for Sustainability has the academic expertise. B Corp brings the practical solutions. Surrey has all the ingredients needed to turn the region's economy green.”
