Long past are the days where the economy and the environment are seen to be at odds. Sustainable Manawatu supports the new paradigm: the economy is part of the environment; environmentally sustainable businesses are the economically successful ventures of the future. Come visit 'Sustainable Business Groups' and 'Business Consultants'.
Sustainable Manawatu is driven by a commitment to cooperation between businesses, local and wider government, community organisations, and individuals. As part of that community and business collaboration, Sustainable Manawatu actively seeks sponsorship for its environmental information services.
Your sponsorship of Sustainable Manawatu would help spearhead the successful future of your economically, ethically and environmentally viable business. Your business or service would receive promotion to a targeted audience, would be able to offer special deals, would build its profile as an ethical, environmentally sustainable business alternative. Come see us. Come talk to us or email consultant@ sustainablemanawatu.org.nz
Spinning Planet Limited is Sustainable Manawatu's initial sponsor. Spinning Planet Limited is a Palmerston North based web design company that builds websites for clients all over the world. They're particularly proud to be a €˜Green Host' which means they have built their web servers and office to be as energy efficient as possible. Recent upgrades reduced their power consumption by 80%.
Spinning Planet Limited receives promotion from Sustainable Manawatu for their excellent services; their profile is enhanced and they profit from the satisfaction of being an ethical citizen of the business community. Do come talk to us about ways you can be involved in sponsoring Sustainable Manawatu €¦tailor-made packages, large or small. One example is having your business being the first and the largest to be seen as viewers enter a database category -- no more searching; searching stops there because THERE YOU ARE!
