How to develop your carbon footprint
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. With more and more businesses implementing carbon reduction measures and making net zero commitments, we’ve developed a workshop to support businesses through the process of reducing their environmental impact.
This workshop aims to give companies the knowledge to develop their carbon footprint, reduce their carbon emissions and develop a plan to achieve net zero.
During the workshop, we will spend time breaking down some of the jargon, highlighting the benefits of taking action on reducing your carbon emissions and providing tips, advice, and examples of measures you can implement in your business.
This is an introductory level course and doesn’t require any previous knowledge or experience of understanding your carbon footprint or implementing a net zero plan.
Throughout the interactive session, delegates will also have the opportunity to hear from other attendees, share their own experience and ask questions.
Spaces will be limited so if you’re interested, ensure you book now to secure your place!
Who should attend?
This workshop is suitable for businesses of all sizes who would like to learn more about what they can do to reduce their environmental impact and how to get started or progress on their business’ carbon reduction journey.
