The Climate Action Programme launches in Redcliffe and Temple
12th April 2023
On Tuesday 21 March, we brought together professionals from more than thirty businesses for the launch of our collaboration with Redcliffe & Temple Business Improvement District, which is seeking to make this area of the city the heart of our Climate Action Programme.
After lunch and networking, Redcliffe & Temple BID Project Manager, Tom Swithinbank, kicked off the event with a look into the BID’s Sustainability Action Plan, which sets out how the team will support businesses in the area to operate more sustainably, and how they are working with local stakeholders to mitigate against climate risks, including flooding and extreme heat.
Our Engagement Officer, Bex Shreeve, then gave a passionate overview of the range of free practical support on offer through our Climate Action Programme, encouraging businesses to connect with her so that we can tailor our programme of support to meet their needs.
Giving members of the Redcliffe & Temple BID business community the opportunity to learn from one another and share best practice, is a key objective for our partnership with Redcliffe & Temple BID, and we were delighted to have one of our Climate Leaders Group members, Kirsty Green-Mann, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Burges Salmon, join us a guest speaker.
Kirsty shared valuable insights into how Burges Salmon has made significant progress towards achieving their 2026 net zero target and presented her five-step approach to achieving your business’ climate ambitions.
Following great participation in the Q&A and a lively networking session, we left feeling inspired and excited to be working with businesses in this area of the city. There is clearly a strong appetite to drive climate action forward and we are now even more confident that our partnership with Redcliffe & Temple BID will enable us to deliver the support businesses need to accelerate climate action.
If you were unable to attend and would like to find out more about the programme of support available in Redcliffe and Temple or share details of your climate journey, please get in touch with Bex (email@example.com).
