Net Zero 360 Southampton
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. You get 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.
You’ll get a solid grounding in net-zero business, with plenty of time built-in for you to ask questions and get tailored advice.
This in-person edition will run from 9.30-12.30pm on 9 and 23 February and 2 March. There will be refreshments from 9am and a light lunch at 12.30pm.
