Net Zero 360: Become a sustainability pioneer
Just like the digital revolution in the 2000s, net-zero is transforming business at a pace. Get left behind and you risk becoming irrelevant in the eyes of consumers, investors, and funders.
But where do you start? How do you work out what’s right for you? And how do you deal with the complex issues, such as supply chains and product lifecycles?
Enter Net Zero 360 – the UK’s first full-service net-zero business package.
It’s designed to take you from the first steps on your net-zero journey to becoming a bona fide sustainability pioneer, with every aspect of your business aligned to net-zero.
It gives you access to workshops, a rigorous carbon calculator, action-planning support, and university innovation expertise and facilities.
This three-part series of FREE workshops is where you get on.
The workshops will give you a solid grounding in net-zero business and introduce you to the Carbon Calculator.
- At each session there’ll be plenty of time built-in for you to ask questions and get tailored advice.
- There will also be the opportunity between sessions to ask those questions that inevitably only occur after the event (normally in the shower, walking the dog or at 2am in the morning).
