The Harborough Go Green Business Convention is back for a second year to enable companies across the Harborough district to share ideas, tools, and resources to help them become more environmentally friendly.

Businesses are invited to hear from a range of speakers, participate in activities across the day and take away key learnings to implement in their organisations. Sessions will include topics such as the impact of your digital carbon footprint, support from local universities, Net Zero Leicestershire, and the council’s plan for Rural Shared Prosperity Funding.

The free event takes place at The Collaboration Centre, on Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, on Tuesday 21 March 2023, from 9.15am to 3pm. The council are offering a park and ride option to the event from both main towns, Lutterworth and Market Harborough.

Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is owned by Cox Automotive, who will deliver a session on the day to share their green plans and actions.

Cllr Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “We are thrilled to be delivering the Harborough Go Green Business Convention for the second year running. This is a fantastic event which brings businesses together to concentrate on a key issue. The council is committed to providing a cleaner, greener district and we encourage businesses to follow suit.”

The full agenda for the day will be announced soon, however, you can book your tickets now. Places are limited and last year the event sold out, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
