An Update on Nottingham’s Environmental Strategy – Event Recap

An Update on Nottingham’s Environmental Strategy

We were delighted to host the first Nottingham Partners event of November on Zoom on Friday 13 November. We welcomed members to hear Councillor Sally Longford and Wayne Bexton give an update on Nottingham City Council’s Environmental Strategy and hear about their plans to create a Carbon Neutral City by 2028.

Our chairman, Paul Southby, welcomed Councillor Sally Longford, the Deputy Leader of Nottingham City Council who is the portfolio holder for Energy, Environment and Democratic Services and Wayne Bexton, Head of Energy Services at Nottingham City Council and the Chair of the D2N2 Energy Board.

Carbon Neutral Nottingham 2028 is the campaign for Nottingham to become the UK’s first carbon neutral city by 2028, reducing all carbon dioxide emissions from direct and indirect energy use to net-zero. This aim is 22 years ahead of the UK government’s aim to become carbon neutral by 2050.

This ambitious pledge by Nottingham City Council will affect residents and businesses alike. That’s why we believe it is so important to keep our business community up to date about the council’s plans for carbon neutrality and how this is likely to affect businesses operating in Nottingham.

Following presentations from Councillor Sally Longford and Wayne Bexton, members of Nottingham Partners were given the opportunity to put their questions to the panel in a Q&A session.

The slides from our event are available to download here.
