Series of Virtual Events

We understand the instruction to reduce face-to-face contact in order to reduce the spread of infection – we also recognise that businesses need the ability to continue in some form.

 

During the pandemic we are vowing to be a source of pragmatic, practical and valuable guidance so our business community is able to fight the fight.

 

Join our series of interactive webinars to support your business and employees as we navigate the coronavirus crisis. We will be joined by an expert from within our membership to provide key insights into topical subjects and ensure your business questions are addressed.

 

Did you miss one of our webinars? No worries, we have been recording them for you! Click here to view our latest recorded webinars.

 

As a community, we must stick together to protect ourselves, our businesses and our workforce.

Zero Carbon Business Portal webinar invitation

09:30 AM - 11:00 AM

The government has launched ambitious targets for the reduction of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to Net Zero by 2050. The changes needed mean that all businesses need to phase out all emissions within the next few decades.



For many SMEs, the changes needed to deliver net-zero seem daunting, so working together with the business membership organisations, British Chambers of Commerce and energy networks from across the UK, we are developing a new portal – ZeroCarbonBusiness - that gives small and medium sizes businesses objective, clear and easy to follow advice and support on how to get started and get ahead of the targets.



Join us for a special presentation on Friday 23rd April from 09:30 – 11:00 and hear from fellow SME business leaders on the challenges of delivering net-zero, how small businesses can make meaningful changes and what we’ve learned so far on what SMEs need to deliver carbon reductions.
