Be part of a more sustainable future
Does your business have a plan for reaching net zero? Now is the time to make one.
Our region’s economy has a special relationship with its environment – we are truly a Blue Green Economy that can thrive when business works sustainably with our seas and green spaces.
In 2019, the UK pledged to reach net zero emissions by 2050. This section of our website will help your business contribute to this target and take action on climate. You can find resources, insights, information, tools and support.
We’ve also put together a Net Zero Directory which features advice from experts who can help your business improve its energy efficiency.
