Businesses will be welcomed to join a free climate change conference hosted by Stevenage Borough Council.
The “Grow through Sustainability” workshop is set to help businesses understand how to lower their carbon emissions, to help cut costs and get our town to net zero by 2030.
Funded by the Hertfordshire Health Protection Board, the event will give advice on steps businesses can take now to improve efficiencies and support to go greener, for increased productivity to their business.
Attendees will also be given information about funding streams available to help create low carbon workplaces and support for sustainable plans.
The event is being headlined by Planet Mark, who brought the Zero Carbon Battle Bus to COP26 in Glasgow.
Stevenage’s ElectrAssure will also be supporting the event and will highlight the opportunities for businesses in the sustainability sector.
Councillor Lloyd Briscoe at Stevenage Borough Council said: “We are delighted to be supporting this event in helping our businesses to progress their sustainability journey and join the tens of thousands of other organisations who have already committed to the Race to Zero.
