Challenges and opportunities in region’s drive to net zero highlighted by event

Carbon-reducing projects and green innovation in agri-food, construction and other key sectors have been highlighted at a Clean Growth for Business conference organised by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.

Lift-sharing, sustainable crop production and training in sustainable construction were just some of the initiatives showcased to demonstrate how Norfolk & Suffolk is rising to the net zero challenge and in some cases leading the field.

However, high levels of freight on our roads and the rural make-up of the area pose a particularly stark challenge, with Transport East highlighting how 48% of our transport carbon emissions involve journeys to or from rural areas.
