Blue Earth Summit is also providing a pitch platform for the BE100 shortlisted start-ups and businesses looking for millions in funding, whittled down to 30 who positively impact their respective sectors.

Steph Pomphrey, leading content and partnerships for Blue Earth Summit, says: “Blue Earth Summit harnesses the power of being outdoors to bring people and communities together to build a more positive future for our planet. The aim is to help organisations on their journey to net zero and beyond, improve team cultures, provide inspiration, channel funding, enhance collaboration across industries and ultimately drive positive, lasting change. We’re delighted that The Independent is joining us on our mission.”

Beth Gordon, Business Marketing and Communications Director at The Independent adds: “Blue Earth Summit is a hugely inspiring and impactful event for The Independent to be partnering with. We share the belief that we all have the ability and responsibility to make the world a better place — that individually and collectively we can make change happen.”
