Green thinking companies are being urged to spread the word and act as ambassadors for sustainable businesses in East Anglia and help drive forward the green economy.

Today marked the launch of the new Green 100 profiling companies in Norfolk and Suffolk which are leading the way in promoting the green agenda through their day to day operation and the services they provide.

The conference coincided with the publication of a special magazine profiling the companies which range from businesses in the green energy sector, as well as non-green businesses and organisations which have introduced sustainable innovations.

More than 100 delegates from across the two counties gathered at the Orbis Energy Centre in Lowestoft to mark the launch.

Speakers included David Barker, chairman of Suffolk the Greenest County, Iain Dunnett from New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, and Steve Manning from EDF Energy.

Anna Martin, from Groundwork Suffolk and Norfolk told the session that the companies should celebrate their inclusion in the listing, but she also urged them to help encourage other businesses to follow their lead.

“There is a fantastic array of businesses that make up the Green 100,” she said. “Green 100 businesses have also got a role to play. If you can encourage one or two businesses to follow your lead that can really have an impact.”
