The flagship Business Net Zero Conference hosted by Harrogate District Climate Change Coalition, Harrogate Borough Council and PlanetMark, will take place on Friday, October 15, at Harrogate Convention Centre.

Sponsored by Chameleon Technology, businesses are invited to join the event as we discuss the concept of net zero carbon and why it is critical for businesses to make this transition.

Hear Carbon Stories from local organisations including Yorkshire Water and Bettys and Taylors and learn how to support your businesses journey. The full day event takes place from 9am-6.30pm and will see speakers present on a variety of topics and sectors.

On the day, you’ll see the UK's first 100 per cent electric coach, affectionately named the ‘Carbon Battle Bus’. There will be opportunities to engage with suppliers at the sustainability marketplace and there will also be the opportunity to sign up to free sustainability workshops for your organisation.
