About us

Who are we?
edie.net has been the market-leading information resource driving sustainability in business for nearly 20 years. A trusted and integral part of the workflow of 60,000+ sustainability professionals, it delivers daily news and commentary, expert advice and business tools, downloadable industry reports and white papers, access to video and webinars, opt-in daily and weekly newsletters, recruitment news and a comprehensive directory of sustainability suppliers.

However, we also have a year-round portfolio of high-level business conferences and events including an annual flagship exhibition at Birmingham's NEC and two awards schemes.

It means that, as a publisher, Faversham House produces the UK's largest multi-platform portfolio of sustainability information and resources, engaging year-round with thousands of energy, environment, facilities and sustainability professionals from all UK business sectors, private and public.

We talked extensively to our community of website users, conference delegates, awards attendees and exhibition visitors, and with our advertisers, sponsors and exhibitors, asking them what they wanted from us, and they agreed universally.

Our audiences want a single, trusted source of information, delivering coherent, multi-platform content 365 days a year.

So, we're bringing together our entire energy and sustainability offering under the edie brand, so we can deliver the information and insight you need to make your business better. Essentially, we've joined the dots so you don't have to.

How do we define 'sustainability professional'?
edie defines sustainability professional as the person responsible for mitigating a company's environmental impacts, developing and implementing sustainability strategy and ensuring the organisation is legally compliant and resilient in the face of environmental pressures.

Who are they?
The sustainability function can sit with many different job roles depending on the size of the organisation.

The job falls to the chief executive or managing director of smaller companies and the bigger the company, the more resource-specific the job title. So when we refer to sustainability professionals we mean:

  • energy managers
  • sustainability managers
  • environment managers
  • facilities managers
  • CSR managers
  • chief executives
  • managing directors
  • SHE managers
  • waste managers

How do we connect?
Our mission is to provide those sustainability professionals with the information and resources they need to do business better.

edie is embedded in their daily workflow. Our content supports strategic decision-making, provides tools for implementation and facilitates project specification.

This integrated approach appeals to all key stakeholders in the organisation, from the board-level decision-makers through to operational managers and their teams, providing something for everyone, and, ultimately connecting strategic business objectives with the solutions needed to drive change.

Our delivery touchpoints and interaction keep readers engaged throughout their working day from early morning news alerts, breaking news via social media, searchable reference material, lean-back learning and face-to-face events.
