Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Training will Help Build New Green Business Sector in Swansea


Swansea business people are being given expert advice on how they can help others make the city greener.

They're taking part in training sessions that will help them boost Swansea Council's work to improve biodiversity.

The sessions are free to attend and are open to all city enterprises that want to guide others on using nature-based solutions to grow business.

Those attending include landscape gardeners, urban designers and maintenance organisations.


Council cabinet member David Hopkins said:

“Swansea's a green city and it's getting greener thanks to the efforts of businesses and other organisations.

“Our green infrastructure strategy encourages improved use of green spaces, vegetation, soil and water that help make our city a better place in which to live.”

The training has been developed by the council, Natural Resources Wales and regeneration agency Urban Foundry.

It's funded by the UK Government's Community Renewal Fund (CRF).

Forthcoming Swansea city centre training for business includes:

  • Dec 7: Grounds maintenance for nature and people.
