  • An opportunity to reflect on your own business approach to going carbon zero
  • Your chance to align appropriate zero carbon options to your company
  • Your chance to meet and engage with other SMEs in an interactive and engaging session
  • Broken down into bite-sized learning blocks - fast-paced, interactive and energising
  • Action-focused so you’ll come away having ‘done’ the work whilst expanding your knowledge and network at the same time

THIS SESSION ISN’T
