Zero Carbon and your small business: greener choices for travel
June 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
“We can all worry about carbon when we’re flush with cash. It’s much harder when you’re trying to keep your business afloat and we understand that. But there are hard cash savings to be made from reducing your carbon emissions as well as indirect cash savings from maintaining your staff’s wellbeing so they’re not off sick.” This is what presenter Ian Murdey says to anyone who thinks going green will be hard work, too expensive and not a priority.
This dynamic, practical and collaborative session will demonstrate how going green can make real business sense to your SME. It will focus on travel – to work and for work – and how this could be approached differently to help reduce your carbon footprint, particularly coming out of a year-long lockdown in which many of us have had to change the way we work.
This session is about people and not about moving goods or haulage or carbon in the supply chain.
We understand that it can be more challenging for SMEs to change because they have fewer resources than larger companies so we will focus on the real challenges for SMEs, including how to change behaviour using no-cost and low-cost approaches.
There will be no preaching!
We understand that everything including making green changes, has to answer a business case and that is simple – when you save carbon, you save money.
