Surrey County Council: Our Headline Sponsor

“Surrey County Council is delighted to be Headline Sponsor as it demonstrates our commitment to working with businesses in the county to tackle climate change,” said Cllr Mike Goodman, Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste for Surrey County Council. “CREST20 will shine a spotlight on the local action that is already being taken by businesses in the area to reduce their carbon emissions and impact on the environment. It will also celebrate the successes of businesses that make it easier for their customers to act in a more sustainable way.”

CREST20 is also timely for Surrey County Council which is working on its climate change strategy for the county. “Surrey County Council recognises the importance of the business sector in reducing carbon emissions in the UK,” said Cllr Goodman. “The only way that we will be able to achieve any real progress in improving our environment and reaching net zero emissions is if the public and the private sectors work together with support from central government.”
