Our purpose is for Sheffield to be a sustainable place to live and work for everyone.
What does this mean? Sheffield will be sustainable when it creates an enduring way of life which meets the current ecological, economic, political and cultural needs of its community without compromising the ability of future generations to experience the same or better.
The Sheffield Sustainability Network exists to support and enable local businesses and organisations to develop and drive a sustainable economy in the Sheffield City Region.
What are our values?
We pledge that all members will be able to participate in the Network, regardless of their financial or other resources. SSN will not discriminate between people and is committed to reaching, working with and being representative of diverse communities in and around Sheffield.
We pledge to be member-led and to be an active Network, which encourages, facilitates, inspires and empowers our members to take action to support sustainability. We encourage and support members to make real and meaningful changes for the good of Sheffield and the wider world.
We pledge to root SSN in honesty and transparency, with science-based principles at the heart of our work. We are committed to challenge ourselves to achieve our purpose.
We pledge to be accountable, demonstrated by our commitment to a rigorous auditing process. We will openly report the sustainability metrics provided by our members.
We pledge to encourage our members to be committed to our principles and take action towards achieving sustainability in the organisations or businesses they represent.
We pledge that SSN will work towards becoming an ongoing Network, which is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.
