Event description
It’s a good idea to think about working towards Net Zero from the start as it will be a legal requirement for all UK businesses in 2050.

About this event

Every business, of any size, has a responsibility to consider the impact of its operation on the environment and needs to take bold steps now to reduce its own carbon emissions and achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050. Customers are also often interested in how you take care of the surrounding area and your local community.

What will I learn?

  • Considering Net Zero at the start of your business journey.
  • Including the Social Value of choosing suppliers that are local.
  • Bringing communities together.
  • Carbon footprint calculators.
  • Capturing the positive changes and developments within your business.
  • B Corp and other accreditations.

What will I take away?

We will think about how using local suppliers can create strong supplier relationships, how including a carbon footprint plan at the start of your business idea will help you develop a business for the future and consider how you can add value to your community.
