Policy Spotlight with Rhouda: Chamber launches third campaign in ‘Environmentally Conscious Staffordshire’ series.
Staffordshire Chambers is proud to launch our third campaign in our ‘Environmentally Conscious Staffordshire’ series. Net Zero focuses on providing up-to-date information and resources for our members and the wider business community on ways that they can work towards achieving net zero.
Becoming net zero is about achieving a balance between the carbon emitted into the atmosphere and the carbon removed from it. In order to do this, it is essential that firms in all sectors reduce their emissions and find new and sustainable ways of working.
Sara Williams, CEO of Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, said: “At the Chambers we recognise the current climate emergency that the world is in, and we believe that businesses have an important role to play. Through our campaign series, we aim to support as many businesses in the region as possible to work towards achieving net zero and creating a sustainable city.
“We are delighted to have been able to work with some of our business members throughout this campaign who have demonstrated their efforts and changes that they have made within their company towards reaching this goal. We hope that through this campaign we will see more businesses take the lead and increase their global competitiveness by reducing their carbon emissions and finding new and sustainable methods of working.”
The Chambers will also continue to lobby government so that more support is provided to SMEs who require funding and resources to make the necessary changes in reducing their carbon footprint.
