Business and climate change
As the Council continues on its journey to carbon neutral, we will be sharing our experiences to encourage businesses in Darlington to take their own actions to reduce energy emissions and make the changes to a more resilient future.
We have produced a Business Resilience Manual, which sets out the kind of questions to ask and lists some tools and contacts to help.

Non-executive directors can join Chapter Zero[external link], a free network to engage and share experiences with other businesses. Free materials are also available to download from the Chapter Zero website [external link].
For more information on which businesses need to report carbon emissions and what is covered by the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting regulations, please see the link below.
