Following on from our extremely successful launch event, we have organised the second event based on feedback from your discussions.
The next event will be taking place on Wednesday 19th October and will focus on two key themes: Getting buy-in for action and Carbon measurement.
We have a panel of knowledgeable speakers lined up who will be sharing their experiences, best practice, and discussing both the benefits and challenges their businesses have faced when tackling the themes.
We'll also be running breakout sessions with each of the speakers, giving you the opportunity to discuss the topics in more detail and network with other businesses from the region.
