We Give Organisations The Space, Knowledge, Contacts And Tools To Accelerate Their Sustainability Journey And Progress Towards Carbon Neutrality

WE DO THIS BY SHOWCASING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS, FACILITATING FUTURE THINKING DISCUSSIONS AND COLLABORATING WITH ONE ANOTHER.

Future Leap brings together a community of change-makers that Discover, Innovate and Collaborate on all things sustainability focussed. They have a carbon-neutral business hub in Bristol, the first of its kind in the country and situated in the heart of Bristol’s independent retail district.

Future Leap champion all things sustainable through showcasing innovative solutions in their environmental tech and product zone, facilitating future-thinking discussions through their weekly events programme, fostering collaboration in their co-working hub, partnering with forward thinking companies and individuals and providing 360° environmental consultancy services for both businesses and individuals.

Future Leaps mission is to give organisations the space, knowledge, contacts and tools to accelerate on their sustainability journey and progress towards carbon neutrality. By being part of the community at Future Leap, organisations and individuals benefit from a whole host of environmental services to keep them in touch with the most current thinking on the climate crisis and solutions for a more sustainable future for all.

As Mark Carney, Former Bank of England Governor and now Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance says ‘“Companies that don’t adapt will go bankrupt, without question.”

The physical sustainable business hub on the Gloucester Road forms the epicentre of Future Leaps community of change makers and showcases new innovative technologies. It has sustainability embedded throughout the building which underwent a £1.5m retrofit and first opened in December 2019. They have re-used, re-purposed and reconditioned the building throughout and all original features have been kept, such as the old stone partition wall, 1930’s wooden flooring and glass frontage, ensuring zero waste to landfill. They have installed one of the largest living walls in Bristol spanning the entire length of the building to help improve air quality from the busy road, promote biodiversity and support pollinating insects. Installed within is a cutting-edge air source heat pump and mechanical ventilation heat recovery system helping the hub achieve its carbon neutral status. Circular economy principles have been thought of throughout the building, with the carpet made from discarded fishing nets removed from the ocean and chairs 3D printed from crisp wrappers. The building has been fitted with energy efficient LED lighting throughout and has hi-tech controls and even the desks are made from disused railway tracks!

Fenna Leake, Future Leap Manager

We must do everything we possibly can to build back better by reducing our carbon through retrofitting buildings, transport and looking into the materials we use to make things for a more circular economy. At Future Leap we can take you through the whole process of making this happen for your business or for your home, advising at each stage and offering environmental solutions. For anything sustainability focussed please pop in for an informal chat or book one of our consultants”

Katherine Piper, Partnerships Director

” The 2018 IPCC special report on Global Warming of 1.5C states that avoiding the devastating impacts of climate change requires “rapid and far-reaching” transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities.” Understanding your business’s carbon footprint and what you can do individually and as an organisation is now absolutely vital to help the green recovery and build back better. If we work together we can make real change”
