Peterborough’s Environment Capital Workshop on Friday the 11th of October

Peterborough’s Environment Capital are running a Workshop on Friday the 11th of October from 10am-3pm at the Town Hall. The aim of the workshop is to raise awareness and help Peterborough achieve its aspiration to create the UK’s Environment Capital.

Delegates, including business leaders, social housing landlords, community leaders and head teachers, are invited to the event which will inspire creation of a cleaner, greener, healthier and more vibrant city.

Stephanie Draper, Director of System Innovation at Forum for the Future, a not for profit organisation which works with businesses and governments to find new sustainable opportunities, will be the keynote speaker at the event. Stephanie leads the forum’s work on the best ways to create change, focusing on system wide change projects which bring together diverse groups of people to find creative solutions to tricky challenges such as making our energy systems more sustainable. Steve Bowyer, Head of Economic Development at Opportunity Peterborough, will also give a presentation on the Future Cities Demonstrator (FCD) - a £3m project funded by the Technology Strategy Board which aims to drive innovation in the city whilst addressing key challenges around skills, sustainability and the economy.

A series of workshops, hosted by British Gas, Anglian Water, Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT), Skanska, Positive Money and the World Wildlife Fund will tackle subjects such as fuel poverty, water efficiency, the living wage and travel and transport all with the aim of providing attendees with the practical knowledge to take action.

Hunt & Coombs take their responsibility for the environment very seriously and recognise that environmental issues form an integral part of their business and are committed to the continual improvement of the firm’s environmental performance in relation to its services and operations. We were delighted to be awarded the Investors in Environment Green Award in October 2012 and continue to investigate and implement ways of improving our commitment to this.
