Peterborough's location in north Cambridgeshire has been key to much of its economic success starting with the use of local clay for the manufacture of bricks in the 20th century. The suitable soil and climate for growing sugar beet led to the city's famous sugar beet factories (now closed but British Sugar's headquarters is still in Peterborough) and the rail and road network has made it a convenient regional centre for many firms who need good links to London. The city can be proud of its past achievements but it continues to prove it's a UK leader with initiatives such as the Environment Capital Manifesto which aims to make Peterborough the greenest city in the country.
