Councillor Paul Coleshill, Alliance for Wealden (Liberal Democrat), and lead councillor for Climate Change and Economy, said, “We are pleased to be working with Clean Growth UK at the University of Brighton to offer our local businesses free net zero workshops. These workshops will make it easier for companies to learn how to achieve net zero, drive down their energy costs and build a workforce fit for a net zero future.”


Zoë Osmond, Director, at Clean Growth UK said: "It's never been clearer that small and medium-sized businesses have a huge amount to gain, and to contribute, in the race to combat climate change. Clients from business-to-business to individual consumers are demanding green approaches and asking informed questions about your Net Zero plans. Staff are increasingly attracted by employers with genuine planet friendly credentials."


The sessions will be covered by two facilitators, a Clean Growth UK team member and Adam Bastock, small business climate change expert and Founder of Small99. To view the event page and details for how to book, visit
