Cambridge hosts zero carbon business conference

Cambridge hosts zero carbon business conference
Businesses are to consider their role in combating climate change and making the transition to a zero carbon economy at a conference in Cambridge.

The first Entrepreneurship for a Zero Carbon Society conference, to be held later this month, will see business people gather to hear and discuss approaches to developing and promoting clean technology.

Among the notable speakers will be Nick Butler, chairman of the Cambridge Centre for Energy Studies and former president of strategy and policy development at BP.

He told FoodBev: "The transition will take us away from a carbon intensive economy in which we are dependent on supplies from difficult and unstable countries. The transition will require a unique combination of knowledge – science engineering but also commercial and business skills. Cambridge is well placed to be at the heart of the transition, that is why this event is so important."

On the agenda will be the provision of incentives or subsidies, the future of electric vehicles and energy efficient cities.
