December 2016

Come and join us to look at the links between our use of water and climate change: its carbon footprint, what water companies need to do and what we can do.
Our guest speaker is Ben Earl, Water Efficiency Manager at Southern Water.

On alternate months, the  Built Environment and Transport Action Groups have joint meetings to influence the built environment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions both direct and indirect. They work with the City of Winchester Trust in the Winchester 2020 Group. Contact BEG@winacc.org.uk

You might think that, with recent government decisions on feed-in trarrifs, Hinkley Point and Fracking that funding for 'green' projects has dried up.

Not all is lost however and funds, initiatives and projects to support the reduction in CO2 are still available. The Sustainable Business Network invite you to come to their free breakfast workshop and hear about some of the recent developments.

Speakers include:
