Clodagh Murphy, chair of EXIST, comments: “The ambitious target of reaching Net Zero by 2030 in Exeter is now just seven years away. This event aims to provide information as well as practical solutions to help businesses to take their next steps to Net Zero. I’d like to thank our key sponsors, Thompson Jenner LLP, Michelmores, the University of Exeter, Exeter Science Park, Bitpod, Exeter City Council, Set Squared Exeter, and One Voice Media for enabling us to deliver topical and essential events of this nature.”
