Celebrating local businesses as they aim for carbon zero

Last week we held our Green Digital Future event at Busnes@LlandrilloMenai in Parc Menai. It was great to welcome colleagues, partners and local businesses to celebrate our Green Digital Academy project. Taking centre stage were the SMEs who were part of the project. They shared their experiences and how they have been supported to reduce carbon emissions.

Green Digital Academy has worked with 54 business across Gwynedd and Anglesey, providing them with expert mentoring and advice to adapt and reduce their carbon footprint. Funded by UK Government’s Community Renewal Fund, the project has supported SMEs to make the shift by making the most of new technology to reduce their impact on the climate.

Bethan Williams was our host for the morning and speakers included Dr Paul Bevan, Executive Director of Bunses@LlandrilloMenai; Stu Meades, MD of Greener Edge Ltd and lead consultant on the project; Ian Wright of Outdoor Alternative and Rhys Anwyl Williams of Rhiw Goch Holidays, two of the businesses to take part in the scheme.

Our headline speaker was S4C meteorologist and climate specialist, Steffan Griffiths. He spoke about climate crisis and how everyone has a role to play as we tackle the challenges.

We had renewable energy demonstrator rigs on display at the event for attendees to learn about how they work and the benefits of the latest technology.
