Leicestershire County Council is dedicated to combating climate change by achieving net-zero status as a council by 2030. They are also collaborating with the people and organisations of Leicestershire to strive for net-zero status as a county by 2045.

In today's business landscape, ESG reports are vital for revealing a company's operations, risks, and commitment to environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and corporate governance. They offer transparency, allowing clients, investors, and the public to align their support with a company's values.

The event includes informative sessions, concluding with a panel-led Question and Answer session. Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance for an engaging and informative discussion.

Leicester Riders Chairman and Arena Director Kevin Routledge said: "We are delighted to host this important event for the ICAEW.

"Our businesses have had a Net Zero focus for a number of years, evidenced by our huge investment in 246Kw(p) of solar in 2016 and in a ground source heat pump.

"The need to continue that journey to Net Zero is more acute than ever before, and we remain committed to that goal. There are many modest cost-effective items all small businesses can do and we look forward to finding out more through this conference."
