Net Zero 360: Free sustainability course in Lewes (for businesses in Eastbourne and Lewes District)

Funded by UK government


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 workshop, exclusively for businesses in Eastbourne and Lewes District, 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 one day in person, the morning session will cover all the basics and get you up to speed, before you stop for lunch and have time to network with fellow businesses. Then on to the afternoon’s 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.
