Victoria commented after the event:
Having grown up on a farm, I care deeply about the environment and am keen to continue to promote this message. I am conscious of my Carbon footprint, and try to re-use and recycle as much as possible. We are very fortunate in North Oxfordshire to have a number of impressive examples of innovation within the ‘green’ sector: Our eco-town in Bicester, environmentally conscious businesses and forward-thinking Local Authority. We need to make sure that Bicester can blossom into a Garden Town, while maintaining equally strong environment standardsacross the region.
I hope to do my part in maintaining the Government’s reputation as the greenest Government ever.
John O’Brien, LCMB Founder and MD had the following to say after the event:
Victoria’s presentation was really interesting and it is great to see that the Government is keen on continuing to keep the UK at the forefront of green innovation. We are really proud to be playing our part as a high growth green business that has saved our clients millions of pounds and thousands of tonnes of CO2 emissions over the last 5 years by making their buildings work harder.
