Sustainability Northwest (SNW) is the regional champion for sustainable development.
An independent, pioneering charity, now celebrating its tenth year; SNW works to inspire, innovate and advance the sustainability agenda for England’s Northwest through a partnership ethos.
Backed by both business and the public sectors, SNW is devoted to engaging actively with all sectors to advocate with a passion, the search for sustainable solutions. Through unlocking minds and raising awareness, SNW stimulates action that will lead to a better quality of life for all in the region.
SNW works to make a real difference in regeneration, corporate social responsibility, renewable energy, transport, climate change and waste.
In the 17th Century, England’s Northwest was the cradle of the industrial revolution. At the beginning of the 21st Century, the region was home to another world first when the not-for-profit consultancy - the National Centre for Business and Sustainability (www.thencbs.co.uk) joined SNW to become one of the most innovative organisations in Europe.
