Reading Climate Action Network
OUR VISION - to build a thriving network of businesses and organisations who will be at the forefront of developing solutions for reducing carbon emissions and preparing for climate change.
Why businesses? 46% of Reading's greenhouse gas emissions come from commercial activity. That's why it's crucial for businesses to be involved in developing solutions, with us, to tackle climate change.
