Hosted by Groundwork in partnership with InvestSefton and supported by the UK Government, the event marked the beginning of an exciting journey towards sustainability for 60 local businesses. The event specifically focused on the accommodation sector, offering practical tips for B&Bs, small hotels, and other providers to become more sustainable.
