FREE WORKSHOP: Green Champions Training

A free one day workshop at Pittodrie Stadium, 10:00 - 16:00

This event is part of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Sustainable Business Week, organised by Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Efficient Scotland programme in association with Aberdeen City Council, as part of its ‘Powering Aberdeen’ programme, Aberdeenshire Council and Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce.

Rising energy, water and raw material costs and increasing consumer pressure continue to challenge the way that businesses across Scotland manage their environmental performance.

Our online Green Champions training course is already helping organisations across Scotland prepare for this challenge by providing knowledge, tried-and-tested techniques, best practice examples, and free tools and templates.

This live event, designed for SMEs, will pack the entire Green Champions Planning Modules into one day, and is delivered first hand by our team of business experts, guest speakers and one-to-one advisors.

Get the skills and knowledge over 800 other professionals have already learnt through the Green Champions training course. Find out about available funding, understand the changing resource landscape and go beyond compliance to save money, grow profits and increase competitive advantage.
