Reading Means Business on Climate Change – so do we!

Over 50 organisations including Just Ideas participated in the launch of Reading Business Climate Action Network on October 2nd, which will shape the development of the Reading Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan 2020-25.

The Network will provide information, support and resources to help businesses respond appropriately to the challenges posed by climate change. During the session we worked in groups to examine the challenges and opportunities around the key themes – including Transport, Water, Energy and Consumption – and started by asking what a Zero Carbon Reading would look like.

The session followed a strategy launch event in June 2019 (pictured) which Just Ideas facilitated.  It was great to see the next phase of the strategy development taking shape and also to talk to local businesses about Just Ideas’ role in delivering the Reading schools’ Model Climate Conferences with InterClimate Network (ICN).

We look forward to working with the Business Network and playing a role in defining the Strategy and Action Plan as we move to a Zero Carbon Reading.
