More than 30 companies have signed up to take part in Shropshire Goes Green, Shropshire Council’s first sustainability festival being held in September 2022 – and the list is still growing.

Latest update from Shropshire Council Newsroom:

Building on the success of November 2021’s Shropshire Goes Electric event, which put the spotlight on sustainable transport and encouraged the use of electric vehicles, Shropshire Council is now focusing on all aspects of sustainability.

The event is being sponsored by Telford-based AceOn Group – a nationally respected energy storage and battery company passionate about helping the country meet Net Zero Carbon ambitions and targets.

Ian Nellins, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for climate change, natural assets and the green economy, is delighted so many exhibitors have reserved a place at the event, to be held at Shrewsbury Town Football Club on Sunday 25 September 2022.

Ian said:

“Shropshire Goes Green already has twice as many exhibitors as our transport-only event last year, and we are still taking bookings.

“More than 1,300 people visited us last year, and this demonstrated there is a real hunger in people to find out more about what they can and should be doing to live more sustainably and help tackle the climate crisis.

“Our sponsor AceOn will be demonstrating the latest in energy storage and technologies, and there is a varied list of exhibitors for our home zone, including electric vehicle charging point providers, agricultural experts and companies providing green energy solutions for households.

“We are also delighted to be featuring transport solutions too; welcoming back some main dealers to showcase their ranges of electric vehicles, and supporting cycling as a sustainable way of getting around.

“We’ve always said we wanted Shropshire Council to be at the cutting edge of the fight against climate change and this is yet another example of how the council is leading the way.”
