The Growing Green project, investigating small-medium enterprise (SME) perspectives on sustainable growth, kicks off with a new survey for businesses in Oxfordshire.

Owners and managers of small and medium-sized enterprises from Oxfordshire and surrounding areas are invited share their views on environmentally sustainable growth, in a new, quick survey run by Oxford University, the Open University and Oxfordshire Business Support. The survey results will add to research knowledge, inform the design of environmental business support for SMEs, and help us create learning resources and design workshops to explore key issues in more depth.The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, can be submitted anonymously, and is open until 23 June 2017.

Participants can also now register their interest in free, follow-up peer-to-peer workshops planned for early July in Oxford:

This project is supported by ESRC via their Impact Acceleration Account ‘Kickstarting Impact’ fund. Contact Dr Tina Fawcett via tina.fawcett@eci.ox.ac.uk or 01865 285173 if you have any further questions.

"To meet the sustainability challenge, SMEs will need to make significant, and in some cases radical, changes to their day-to-day operational practices and also to their longer-term trajectories.This project’s primary aim is to help SMEs and intermediaries gain a better understanding of sustainable growth and its implications for their businesses."
