The event will take place on Thursday 7 May, to coincide with European Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) week 2009. The week will see a huge variety of events taking place across the European Union.

A giant marquee in Liverpool One’s newly completed Chavasse Park will act as the focal point for the day, with a green business fair taking place inside between 10 am and 4 pm.

Merseyside SMEs are being invited to come along. Environmentally focused businesses from across Merseyside will be demonstrating easily applicable green measures any company, individual, school or community group could take to save the environment.

As part of the day, Liverpool Chamber will be hosting a free seminar and workshop within the Chavasse Park marquee, from 2 until 3pm, titled ‘Giving Businesses the Green Edge.’

The seminar will see a number of key speakers, including Emansys principal consultant and head of the Liverpool Chamber environment committee, Stephen Sykes.

Businesses attending the workshop can learn about environmental management systems, waste management applications and a range of practical eco-friendly measures. There will also be an opportunity to join Liverpool Chamber’s Environment Club.

We hope the event will encourage companies to take a Year of the Environment Green Pledge or go further to become a Green Business Ambassador.

In order to become a Green Business Ambassador, a business must have achieved a standard, won an award or have outstanding green credentials before applying for the title. Successful ambassadors will be able to raise their profile, and that of Liverpool as a leader in the tackling of climate change.

There will be locally sourced food for sale and eco-friendly entertainment for the public to enjoy throughout the day
