Sandwell businesses and entrepreneurs don’t just share a borough, we share a planet.
Our climate is changing in Sandwell and across the world, largely due to our lifestyles which are dependent on fossil fuels (using oil, coal and gas). Climate change means that our weather will become more extreme, leading to increasing numbers of flooding events and heatwaves.
Sandwell Council has declared a climate emergency. One of our seven economic priorities is ‘Net Zero in Sandwell’. We need to work together to build climate resilience: reducing and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
We all have a responsibility to create a cleaner, greener environment for everyone. As a bonus, you may find a wealth of business growth opportunities on your journey to net zero.
