Businesses in York and North Yorkshire are facing fresh challenges but there could be a brighter future with Devolution and the push for net zero bringing huge opportunities for growth.

The 2022 York & North Yorkshire LEP Annual Conference will host the York & North Yorkshire Business Summit. Delivered in partnership with the Federation of Small Businesses, Confederation of British Industry and West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, the York & North Yorkshire Business Summit is your chance as business leaders to pose your questions and share your views at a time of challenge and unique opportunities for growth in the region. 

Joining us at this special event for the region’s business leaders is Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen. Ben will give his take on devolution and say how it can bring benefits for every business, from the high street to global corporations. 

A panel of business leaders from across the region will take your questions and share how they are innovating now to strengthen their businesses through active carbon reduction, taking full advantage of the national push for Net Zero. Find out more about the ambition for York and North Yorkshire to be England’s first carbon negative region and position your business to take full advantage of the changes.
