Biosphere: Good For Business

Our goal is to foster a sustainable economy, providing an opportunity for businesses of all sectors to ‘do things differently’ while safeguarding the environment for future generations. In working together for this common purpose, businesses can develop new ideas and ways of working which better focus existing resources and attract investment into our region.

When a business connects with Galloway & Southern Ayrshire Biosphere it also connects with the globally respected UNESCO brand, and benefits from local, regional and international collaboration. We provide marketing opportunities for sustainably produced goods and services, and facilitate networks through which knowledge and experience is shared. Today’s consumer is much more conscious of the ‘green credentials’ of the businesses with which they engage, and the Biosphere ethos is reflected in this new way of thinking and buying.
