Net Zero 360: Free sustainability course for University of Brighton suppliers

You want to tackle sustainability in your business but you’re unsure what to focus on.

Everyone has an opinion on what works and what doesn’t: who do you listen to?

And you want to cut your footprint but you also want to reduce costs and grow your business.

If all that sounds familiar, you’re in the right place.

This FREE online workshop, exclusively for suppliers to the University of Brighton, will help you get to grips with sustainability in your business.

You’ll cover:

  • What net zero means for business,
  • The most impactful actions you can take
  • How to measure your footprint
  • How to create a carbon reduction plan

Delivered over two half-days, the first session will cover all the basics and get you up to speed. The second session is a more practical hands-on session, with plenty of time for questions and discussions.

You’ll come away with all you need to build your unique business net zero plan and a thorough grounding in how to measure your carbon footprint, including free access to the Clean Growth UK business carbon calculator.
