What we can do for you
We believe that perfect symbiosis – everyone working together so that everyone benefits – is possible in both organisations and processes.
Our services cover different aspects of diversity & inclusion and the bioeconomy – and sometimes both at the same time!
Our consultancy and training support can help you, your organisation and your staff embrace and realise the benefits which diversity & inclusion can bring.
Please contact us if you’d like to know more.
The bioeconomy refers to the set of economic activities relating to the invention, development, production and use of biological products and processes. To transition from a fossil fuel based economy to a bioeconomy, new value chains, utilising biobased resources and innovation are required.
The bioeconomy has the potential to maintain and create economic growth and jobs in rural, coastal and industrial areas, reduce fossil fuel dependence and improve the economic and environmental sustainability of primary production and processing industries.
Our aim is to promote bioeconomy opportunities to business and provide consultancy and advice to business to aid development and adoption of biobased products and processes. This is based on long experience and unique knowledge of the various stakeholders in biobased arena including industry, academia, research, government and innovation bodies.
We wish to nurture relationships and further develop opportunities for SMEs and companies in identifying and securing new research and innovation funding opportunities; to support biobased developments; to organise events including business seminars to attract clients to particular services and products that fall within the circular and bioeconomy.
Diversity & Inclusion
We are passionate and dedicated to enabling change to bring about a truly inclusive culture. Our aim is to change current practices in business, government and academia to better reflect the diverse society we live in and to promote an inclusive culture in which all feel supported and empowered.
The case is made for diversity & inclusion from various aspects, including:
- There is economic evidence of businesses benefiting from strong equality and diversity practices. It may make the business an employer of choice, thereby attract the best talent.
- When procuring services many organisations consider whether the tendering business can demonstrate both practice of and commitment to equality and diversity.
- Diversity encourages active participation from all: people should be able to be treated with respect and fairly. Strong commitment to equality and diversity leads to a happier and more productive workforce.
- Broadly, it is against UK and EU law to discriminate against anyone on the basis of their: age,disability, sex, race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion, belief or lack of religion/belief, sexual orientation, being transgender, being married or in a civil partnership, being pregnant or having a child.
We will do this through awareness raising, training, mentoring, coaching and setting up of support networks. We can also review processes to make them more inclusive.
