Business Climate Action

Led By: Stef Nienaltowski – CEO, Shaping Portsmouth

Our paramount objective is to initiate substantial carbon footprint reduction within our business community, actively assisting all enterprises in discovering cost-effective approaches to curtail their carbon emissions. In addition, we are committed to spearheading impactful projects aimed at addressing the root causes of this pollution. Through concerted efforts and collaboration, we aim to pave the way for a more sustainable future, championing environmental responsibility across all business sectors.
