As your company begins its carbon reduction journey, it becomes important to understand how you can effectively communicate your sustainability ambitions with your staff, shareholders and to the wider public and potentially investors.

The workshop aims to equip businesses with the knowledge and tools to actively engage with their internal staff to communicate the ambitions outlined in their sustainability plan and support the delivery of a collaborative, employee backed sustainability goal.

Additionally, the workshop will breakdown terms such as greenwashing and greenhushing and equip you with the knowledge of how to utilise SEO, social media and your website to amplify your sustainability ambitions.

Throughout the interactive session, delegates will also have the opportunity to hear from other attendees, share their own experience and ask questions.

If you’d like to gain more of an introduction to Trading to Net Zero, or learn more about a specific topic, you can take a look at the other workshops we’re running as part of this series further down the page!

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