Net Zero October

Net Zero October

In the lead up to the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) COP26 in Glasgow, Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce hosted Net Zero October – a month of events dedicated to business and the climate crisis agenda.

This series of events showcased how businesses in the region are changing to meet Net Zero carbon targets, explored what our ambitions were in tackling the climate crisis and helped businesses discover how to make the crucial green changes to your organisation.


Net Zero October was proudly sponsored by YGS Landscapes.
