For the member businesses of the UK’s Accredited Chambers of Commerce and the Global Business Network, the Climate Challenge is the single most important long-term issue. Business members want to rise to the occasion and play their part in meeting this inter-generational problem head on because of their keen sense of social value and connection to local and global communities.
Sussex Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping businesses play their role through a wide range of initiatives. This hub was developed with partners through the British Chambers and shares our ambition and values. It comprises various sections, which will evolve and grow over time to give businesses more insight, support and best practice help, allowing them to understand how they can best make their contribution and what is expected of them. We have also set out some of our key ideas for how Government can create the right incentives and structures.
