Businesses within Wokingham borough are being invited to attend the council’s second Climate Conversation session on 14 October. This programme is part of an extensive engagement process on how the borough can respond to the climate emergency.


Following on from the success of the first session, businesses are invited to join the virtual event and with the support of guest speakers, the council will explore the challenges we face and the opportunities available to help us achieve net-zero carbon.


The speaker line-up of Dr Wendy Buckley (client director, carbonfootprint.com), Lucy Latham (senior manager, CDP) and Lisa McKelvey (co-founder, Greenfeet) promises expertise for businesses to engage with.


Topics will include:

•          Carbon footprinting and why should you understand your carbon footprint

•          The considerations involved in carbon footprinting

•          The benefits of committing to climate pledges and reaching net zero carbon by 2050

•          How to address your carbon emissions and why it is important to make a plan

•          Real case studies to demonstrate what steps are involved


Cllr Gregor Murray, executive member for communications, residents and emissions, said: “Whilst the council has ambitious plans as part of its climate emergency declaration, we cannot do it alone. Having support from local businesses is key in helping us in our endeavours to make the borough net-zero carbon by 2030.”


To find out more or register your place, please email climate.emergency@wokingham.gov.uk by Wednesday 13 October.
