Bira sponsors The Sustainable Business Podcast by SmallStuff

We are very happy to announce that we are sponsoring the Sustainable Business Podcast, by the owner of SmallStuff, and Bira member Hellen Stirling-Baker.

Along with many other organisations, we have become more aware of the effects of our carbon footprint and have started to make a conscious effort to reduce our contributions to harming our planet. The first step we have made starts our internal Sustainability Task Force, consisting of; staff members, Board of Managers and of course our independent retailer members.

Our goal is to become the first membership association to be net-zero carbon in two years, as well as to help our associates and members to become more sustainable and make it a normal part of their lifestyle. So when Hellen first approached us about sponsoring her new podcast, we jumped at the chance to get involved. 

Listen to the very first episode of the Sustainable Business Podcast below
