This exciting event will take place on Thursday March 7th at Wherstead Park, just outside Ipswich in Suffolk. Please save the date, booking information will be sent to you early in the New Year.
The nationally recognised work being undertaken by businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk to develop the green economy has been profiled in a national pathfinder backed by government, the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, the Suffolk and Norfolk Chambers of Commerce, Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils and the Environment Agency.
The Green Economy Pathfinder Manifesto was launched in 2012 in the Houses of Parliament. It shows that effective transition to a sustainable economy can boost economic recovery, create jobs, increase resource security and help to make the UK more globally competitive.
The Sustainability 2013 conference on 8 May 2013 at John Innes Centre Norwich will highlight many of the achievements of the Green Pathfinder. The key note speaker at this conference will be Energy Minister John Hayes MP.
