Hertfordshire Growth Board and Hertfordshire Climate Change and Sustainability Partnership are delighted to be co-sponsoring the Sustainability Conference organised by biz4Biz at Rothamsted Research on 3rd March 2022.
This all-day event titled Sustainability: The Path To Net Zero: Your Transformation to Sustainable Advantage in Business and Society will bring place leaders and businesses together to explore green solutions and share best sustainable practices post COP-26.
Richard Roberts, Leader, Hertfordshire County Council and Chair, Hertfordshire Growth Board, will set out Hertfordshire’s commitment to sustainability and tackling climate change.
He said: “The challenge that we now face as a county is how do we manage future development sustainably with a growing population and a requirement to build 100,000 new homes in less than a decade? Together, we must manage our resources more responsibly to reduce our carbon footprint, with small incremental changes to the way we live, work and move around.
“There is a huge task ahead of us, but also tremendous opportunities to do things differently. I look forward to welcoming you to the Sustainability Conference as we set out how together we can put Hertfordshire on the path to net zero.”

Hertfordshire Growth Board works closely with the Hertfordshire Climate Change and Sustainability Partnership to deliver climate change action and reduce the carbon footprint across the county. The Partnership is working across four key areas:
- Water Sustainability
- Carbon Reduction
This closer alignment of climate change and sustainable growth will help us to plan responsibly for a ‘decade of delivery’ in Hertfordshire and meet our carbon neutral and housing targets by 2030.
