Councillor Harsha Desai, Cabinet member for Growth and Place at Chichester District Council says: "We're pleased to have organised this sustainability 'Lunch and Learn' event for businesses in the Chichester District. Hosted by our Economic Development Team. We hope the event will encourage businesses to make a difference and reduce their carbon footprints.
"By encouraging businesses to become more sustainable, we'll also be helping the district to move a step closer to fulfilling the council's Climate Emergency Action Plan. This sets out how the council will reduce carbon emissions within its own operations and help residents, businesses, and organisations to reduce their carbon footprint too. People can find out more about the work the council is doing to combat climate change by visiting the Council's climate change webpage."
