This event was aimed at senior decision makers from public, private and third sector institutions who are already leading the shift to the low carbon economy across our region. Sustainable business and the low carbon sector is thriving in the East Midlands. According to Government figures low carbon business is five times larger than aerospace and double the size of auto manufacturing in the UK; and employs more than 35,000 people in our region alone.
The interactive sessions invite delegates to consider:
- What are we already doing to make the shift towards a low carbon economy?
- How can we accelerate this shift across our region?
This event celebrated the exciting developments in low carbon and sustainable business practices from across our region and explore the mega-trends, opportunities and support that are driving this shift in the East Midlands.
The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to deliver free support for eligible SMEs in the D2N2 area.
