Metro Mayor Dan Norris will be urging businesses and local organisations to take immediate action and cut carbon emissions as the West of England Combined Authority and UWE host Planet Mark’s Zero Carbon Tour on Friday 10 September, 12-4pm.
The Mayor will be visiting the #ZeroCarbonTour as it stops off at UWE’s Frenchay campus on its way through the UK to the UN’s Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November.
West of England Mayor Dan Norris said: “The climate emergency is humanity’s most urgent crisis, and across the West of England we all need to play a part in beating it.
“I look forward to officially welcoming the Zero Carbon Tour as it rolls into the West of England, and to seeing how it supports the enthusiasm and commitment of everyone locally to meet our ambitious goal of net zero carbon by 2030.
“I hear there will be carbon clinics followed later by free Net Zero Essentials workshops giving proven and practical tips and explaining what support is on offer on how best to go about it. The climate and biodiversity emergency is urgent – I’m determined to make sure our region is doing its bit to tackle it.”
