The Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce would like to invite you to our upcoming sustainability event on the Edinburgh Climate Compact.

Run by the Edinburgh Climate Commission, the Climate Compact is a commitment by the leading businesses and employers in the Capital to take action within their own organisation to contribute to a green recovery and radically reduce the city’s carbon emissions.

Attendees will learn more about the Climate Compact and how they can get involved and start taking climate action within their own organisation. The event responds to a call from The City of Edinburgh Climate Council’s draft 2030 Climate Strategy to private, public and community and voluntary sector organisations, to sign up to the Climate Compact and initiate changes within their own organisation which reduce their emissions and support Edinburgh’s climate targets.

The Climate Compact: How businesses can support Edinburgh’s net zero ambition We will be joined on the day by the Edinburgh Climate Commission who will outline the purpose of the Climate Compact and explain how businesses can join.

It will also feature a presentation by the Edinburgh Fringe Festival who will highlight the actions they have taken after signing up to the Climate Compact and a short presentation by The City of Edinburgh Council on their draft 2030 Climate Strategy and how organisations can support the City’s climate targets.

Speakers:
  • Edinburgh Climate Commissioner Clare Foster,
  • Anne Diack from Edinburgh Fringe Festival,
  • Representative from the City of Edinburgh Council
Attendees will gain:
  • Insight into the Edinburgh Climate Compact and an understanding of how businesses can become members.
  •  Examples of sustainable actions local businesses have taken after signing up to the Climate Compact
  •  An update on the City of Edinburgh’s Draft 2030 Climate Strategy
  •  A chance to input on the strategy as part of the consultation phase
