The Gloucestershire Climate Change Summit was jointly organised by GFirst LEP and Gloucestershire County Council and hosted by the University of Gloucestershire.
The event was to officially launch the Gloucestershire Sustainable Energy Strategy produced by GFirst LEP working in partnership with the public and private sector.
The summit offered a variety of workshops, table discussions and feedback sessions, with keynote speeches and presentations from; Centre for Sustainable Energy, Gloucestershire County Council, BEIS, Ridge and Partners LLP, Ecotricity, Severn Wye Energy Agency, Spirax Sarco and students from the University of Gloucestershire.
David Owen CEO of GFirst LEP said: “This subject is incredibly important for the county, the country and our planet and it is vital that climate change is addressed. With over 120 delegates attending, it confirms just how important the subject is to individuals and businesses from across the region. The LEP are leading the way by creating a sustainable energy strategy for the county, but we need the support of our local authorities and local businesses to make the changes that are needed.
