Transport the business opportunity of the net zero transition in the East of England
Next in our series in collaboration with the Centre for Climate Engagement, Hughes Hall at the University of Cambridge focusing around Green Technology and businesses within the East of England.
In May 2019, Cambridgeshire declared a climate and environment emergency.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough region has 25% higher greenhouse gas emissions than the UK average and is an area particularly at risk to the impacts of climate change, including more frequent and severe flooding events, water shortages and more extreme summer temperatures. If the region continues producing emissions at its present rate, there are only six years left until it has used up its emissions allowance to 2050, as set out in the UK’s Net Zero target. Local action is urgently needed.
The Centre for Climate Engagement and IoD East of England are collaborating on an event series throughout 2022, with regular events for non-executive directors, board members and business leaders in the East of England to accelerate business climate action in the region. This next event will focus around Green Technology and businesses within the East of England.
