About the event
How can you take meaningful action on climate change as a local enterprise or business based here in Devon? Join us for a series of interactive and informative carbon footprinting workshops enabling you to put theory into action and help make net-zero a reality.
AMBITION INTO ACTION
Calculating your carbon emissions is an essential part of tackling the climate emergency, enabling you to understand where you are and how you can improve. This workshop series will transform your ambition into action. Each session will walk you through the process of calculating your carbon emissions, helping you to understand carbon footprinting, scope 1, 2 and 3 and what makes measuring and reducing these so important.
You will leave these workshops with an actual measurement of your organisation’s carbon emissions, which you can use to identify areas of improvement and proactively take positive action.
Organisations are required to attend all four sessions in this workshop series to ensure that you receive the full information to guide you through the carbon footprinting process and make sure that it is as beneficial to your business as possible.
