Warwickshire County Cricket Club welcomed over 70 local professionals and business leaders as it hosted the curtain-raising Bears Business Club networking event of 2023.

Hosted in the Warwickshire Suite at Edgbaston Stadium, members of the Bears Club came together on Wednesday 22 March for a Season Launch Event focusing on Sustainability in Business which included a panel discussion from industry experts.

Following a period of networking on arrival and a premium three-course lunch, CDR Originator at Drax Group, Fe Bush, started proceedings by discussing the importance of utilising bioenergy, carbon capture and carbon dioxide removals in protecting the environment.

Further discussions continued with Commercial Partnerships Manager at Net Zero Now, Emily Tradd, addressing the reduction of commercially produced greenhouse gas emissions, before our own Sustainability Manager at Edgbaston, Lydia Carrington, closed proceedings with details of the ambitious sustainability objectives in place at the stadium for 2023.

Ben Seifas, Head of Sales & Partnerships at Edgbaston, said: “It is great to welcome back our Bears Club members to launch our 2023 season and introduce a series of new companies that have come on board over the past couple of months.

“Our aim for this year is to continue expanding the Bears Business Club and delivering engaging events for our members. Our Sustainable Launch was a great platform to kick off the season and we look forward to growing even more in 2023.”

The next Bears Business Club event will take place on Friday 21 April with the Warwickshire CCC Golf Day hosted at The Warwickshire Golf & Country Club.
