Climate Action Hawkes Bay

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and 3R are leading an exciting new initiative called Climate Action HB.  They are bringing businesses and communities together so they can be more connected and focused on meeting the challenges and opportunities of climate change in Hawke’s Bay.

Business CoLab

Are you unsure of what you can do about climate change?

Climate change. Climate crisis.  Global warming.  Whatever you call it, it can feel overwhelming.  And, it’s hard to know where to start.

The Business CoLab is the first of a series of events aimed at exploring what each of us can do to transition Hawke’s Bay to a low-emissions economy.

The Regional Council and 3R hope to personalise the journey for Hawke’s Bay business owners so that they commit to actions that will collectively reduce the impact of human accelerated climate change in Hawke’s Bay.

They’d like you to ask one of your key suppliers to attend this event with you. Why? To adapt to and mitigate climate impacts, your business is going to need to work closely with your suppliers, so it’s important they start this journey with you.

Their goal is that the event will have action and measurable outcomes that we can work towards together.  In the 12 months following on from the event they aim to hold a series of workshops covering key topics, such as air, soil, water and people.
