Sustainability Business Network Launch Event - 22 November 2016  

This was the follow up event to last year’s Business ‘Power to Save’, to launch our new sustainable business network. The event featured an inspiring presentation by Sarah Mandelson, CEO of Serendipity Ice Cream. The business has gone completely carbon neutral and Sarah shared some great success stories.

The local business panellists also had a lot of fantastic sustainability success stories: including Ruby Lane, winner of the Northern Beaches Local Business Award in Sustainability, Hairazor with Sustainable Salons Australia, 4 Pines Brewery and representatives from the Better Business Partnerships.
