Nearly 250 representatives from businesses in Cornwall and Devon will find out how carbon reduction targets are going to impact on their operations at a free conference at the Eden Project.

Speakers include Shaun McCarthy, Chair of the Commission for a Sustainable London, Mike Berners-Lee, author of ‘How Bad Are Bananas? The carbon footprint of everything’, David Wathey, Head of Sustainable Procurement at the Department of Health, and Gaynor Coley, Managing Director of the Eden Project.
