About the Climate Summit
Businesses came together from across Somerset to learn share and be inspired about reducing the climate impact of our companies – working together using small steps to deliver collective big wins!
The Somerset Business Climate Summit 2022 took place at Queens College on Wednesday 21 September 2022.
Local firms shared impactful case studies as we came together to raise awareness of the opportunities and challenges for businesses as we shift toward a low carbon economy.
Following the summit we are holding a series of workshops as part of a programme of ongoing networking and best practice sharing and will offer insightful practical steps to reducing your carbon footprint and becoming more sustainable.

Somerset Waste Partnership’s Fixy Van was there, as was Shoreditch White’s eCargo bike.
The Climate Summit offered valuable networking opportunities and the chance to find out what help is available for businesses, as well as learning about the steps other local companies are taking to reduce their carbon footprints and energy bills.
