Southampton Solent University is hosting a major business summit championing the role of ethical companies with a strong social conscience. The event will launch the new Social Enterprise Zone Solent, which covers Southampton and Portsmouth, promoting businesses and community groups that are striving to make the world a better place. A week-long festival of events will celebrate the launch of the new zone. Solent has been named a 'Social Enterprise Place' by campaigning body SEUK which recognises hotspot areas of social enterprise across the country and is supported by Santander. Peter Holbrook, CEO of Social Enterprise UK, said: 'Solent is re-injecting life into local communities across the region. We need to continue to support the sector by buying from social enterprises.'
