We offer to you a channel where members of TVBLEP, The Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group and enterprises can discuss and take part in a Business lead and driven agenda to adapt Climate Change Strategy for the Reading area.
With only 4 weeks until ending of the RBC consultations we decided to set up a LinkedIn conference group based on to provide an arena for feedback of views to the new Reading Climate Change Partnership Strategy.
We have set up this LinkedIn conference group TVB_ClimateChallenge piggy backing RCCP:s Draft Climate Change Strategy for Reading 2013-2020 to assess “best practices” initiatives for carbon footprint reduction, meeting local needs in the Thames Valley. This not only represents excellent opportunities for business – but also a chance for the Thames Valley to lead the field and influence in national sustainable policies. We invite your invitation and participation and wish for your support of the TVB_ClimateChallenge.
We see the importance of a business forum for input from all members of businesses and SME: s in the Thames Valley Berkshire since the Climate Change Strategy will affect us all for coming generations, which is one good reason why we suggest that TVB should have this green agenda as well, – Green business networking in the Clean-tech area with feedback of views to the new Climate Change Strategy for Reading and Berkshire, 2013 to 2020.
It’s an excellent opportunity for the businesses to embrace knowledge and bring value to the region by presenting wise green solutions / advise in companion ship with the local council regarding investments and taxes. Maybe also Reading / Thames Valley Berkshire Climate Development can become an EcoGameMaker for green jobs.
Rather than waiting for legislation. Think about what impact businesses and local government can make together meeting and exceeding set carbon targets.
