Chamber forms new environmental committee

Carol Miller in the chair

PR and Communications Consultant Carol Miller has been invited to set up and chair the first Environment Committee for Woking Chamber of Commerce.

Following on from the success of our recent Woking Women in Business Conference which had the environment as its core theme, we decided to look at the idea of an environment hub that Carol suggested when she was hosting our panel of experts in the field at the conference...

Based on this, Carol has submitted a Terms of Reference document for the committee and has started bringing together Chamber members to form the committee which will be meet every six weeks and report into the Executive Committee.

Carol commented ‘We are fully committed as an organisation to protecting the environment. Long-standing member Dave Peet has represented us on Woking Borough Council’s Climate Change Committee and he is keen to continue to attend this Committee as a contributing member of the Environment Committee.

The scope of the committee will be to:

·         Provide a hub for members to share and access information on how they can operate in a more sustainable way to help preserve and protect the natural environment.

·         Motivate and support initiatives for Woking Chamber of Commerce community to become a go to resource for potential customers and clients who seek greener resources and stakeholders.

Its key focus will be:

·         People – health & wellbeing

·         Environment

·         Climate change.

 

Welcome to your new role as Chairman of the Environment Committee Carol, and to your new place on the Chamber’s Executive Committee.
