Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce hosts Business Net Zero Networking event at Bridgwater United FC

Wednesday 28th September, 2022

A business networking evening at Bridgwater United FC heard from Balanced Energy, a company mobilising the business community to become more sustainable, about the way businesses can start their journey to Net Zero and the future risks to businesses of doing nothing.

The successful event also allowed businesses present to share examples of the steps they have taken and the work they have in motion to reduce their carbon footprint.

Ashley & Harry from Balanced Energy said, “We support businesses in and around Bridgwater on their Net Zero journey. Government legislation requires businesses to take steps to reduce their carbon footprint and it can be challenging for many businesses to know where to start”

Diogo Rodrigues, Bridgwater Chamber Manager, said “We’re working with Balanced Energy and others on the development of a Low Carbon Initiative that will attract employers across Sedgemoor to engage with Carbon reduction planning. Some business will look at this and think “where do I event start?”. We want to support them.”

He adds, “This will enable employers in Sedgemoor to further enhance the area’s world leading status within the sustainable energy and carbon reduction sector, by easily engaging with the initiative. The aim is to identify and encourage employers to engage in the programme and support their individual carbon management”
