Climate change is a global challenge and every business has a responsibility to take steps to reduce the impact on the environment and community in which it exists.

We’re aware that businesses like yours are keen to make changes, but often don’t know where to start, are uncertain about which approach to take, or don’t have the funds to employ a specialist.

Our Aiming for Net Zero workshop aims to give companies a starting point, as well as tips, advice and inspiration to progress along the journey to Net Zero. By the end of the workshop attendees will be able to create their own carbon footprint, carbon reduction plan and make a Net Zero pledge.

During the practical, interactive half-day session our expert trainer will explore three different modules, covering topics such as:

• Why Net Zero is relevant to business

• First steps to Net Zero

• How much carbon your business emits

• How your business can reduce its carbon emissions

• Business opportunities from progressing to Net Zero

• Incorporating Net Zero into business operations and planning

Delegates will also have the opportunity to join peer groups, listen to experts and ask questions.

As part of the course you will also receive an exclusive workbook and certificate on completion.

Spaces will be limited so if you’re interested, ensure you book now to secure your place!
