Achieving the Possible: The journey to carbon net zero
It can no longer be denied that businesses have a vital role to play in reducing carbon emissions, both at the office and supporting green transport initiatives. We are committed to be carbon net zero by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris agreement. We are now at the early stages of achieving carbon neutrality and want to share our journey, knowledge and experience with other companies experiencing the same challenges.
This webinar will outline our strategy for the coming 20 years with calculated milestones that need to be achieved along the way. As leading industry experts, we will share information on how to turn your goals into strategic steps that include data gathering, fact finding, decision-making and creating different strategies for every challenge.
Our strategy for carbon net zero focuses on the four main sustainability themes: lowering direct carbon emissions, waste management, water usage and becoming energy efficient. To measure results over the coming years, a series of performance indicators were put into place for all our sustainability streams. This webinar is for any business that is interested in becoming more sustainable but unsure of where to start!
