In the summer of 2012, Vestforbrænding has taken the lead when it comes to retrieving energy savings in local businesses. They established a free, local business networks in Herlev Municipality, and it motivates and engages Vestforbrænding business customers for energy improvements through dialogues, energy professional presentations and visits to companies.

Client: Vestforbrænding

The task
Vestforbrænding wanted to create more dialogues on energy improvements with small and medium-sized enterprises in Herlev Municipality. Viegand Maagøe was asked to be the project manager on the job because of its extensive experience in managing and coaching of business networks.

The task was to build and implement the network – including building a communication platform for the network.

How we solved the task
We built Herlev’s Green Business Network in collaboration with Vestforbrænding and became a permanent consultant to the task. We mapped the target groups and took key stakeholders in the oath. Then we organized, built and established a network, and completed the first step in concrete networking activities.

The network must be delivered to Vestforbrænding in an operating phase, which Vestforbrænding itself can work further on. The process lasts 1 year and ends in the spring of 2013.

And the result was
The establishment of Herlev’s Green Business Network is well under way, and the first network meeting was held on 21 November 2012. Herlev Municipality’s mayor and 30 dedicated companies participated.
