BEYOND BUSINESS: NET ZERO ROUNDTABLE
BEYOND BUSINESS: NET ZERO ROUNDTABLE
12th October, 10:00am-1:00pm
It’s no secret businesses are responsible for a jaw-dropping proportion of global greenhouse gas emissions. And, as a result, the journey towards net zero is more pressing than ever.
While net zero is a big challenge for organisations of all sizes, layered with complexities, it’s a collective mission, and collaboration can go a long way.
That’s why, on 12th October, 10am-1pm, Cooper Parry are hosting our Beyond Business: Net Zero Roundtable.
The morning will bring together an intimate group of sustainability-savvy organisations at our Sky View office, near East Midlands Airport to discuss all things net zero, with talks covering:
- Carbon neutral, negative and net zero – what are we aiming for?
- Net zero supply chain – calculating and cutting Scope 3 emissions
- What can we do to deliver real carbon reduction in our buildings?
- Legislation, reporting and tax incentives
There’ll be a delicious vegan lunch to follow, and plenty of time to chat with the other guests and get all your questions answered.
We’d love it if you joined us for what promises to be an insightful, important morning.
