As the COP26 climate talks take place in the UK this November, this gives us the perfect opportunity to explore the significant role small businesses will play in the transition to Net Zero. Join us for this free conference to find out what’s in it for you.
Climate change and the need to adapt to a host of associated threats is the single biggest challenge of our generation. Changing weather, issues around supply chains, energy price volatility, access to technology, water stress, employment, skills and equality rights – all of these issues linked to climate change and the move to a low-carbon economy will all begin to press down on small businesses across the globe. UK SMEs will feel the effects – many already are – so there is an urgent need to adapt and mitigate. But we cannot forget that there are also vast and exciting opportunities for SMEs to be found to along the journey to Net Zero.
As the international COP26 climate talks kick off here in the UK, join us for a day of online information, inspiration and action for all small business owners that will spark your business’s unique journey towards net zero. The whole day is designed with you in mind; we’ll take you from the specifics around what “net zero” really means and exactly why these international targets apply to you. You will hear from other small businesses about what they are doing to adapt and diversify to meet the challenges. All that before leaving you inspired to form your own action plan so you can play your important part in the UK’s transition towards net zero emissions.
With leading expert names from Government, regulation and policy making appearing as keynotes and motivating case study sessions from other SMEs who have seen real, material benefits to their business since taking their steps along the journey, you are sure to leave far more informed and inspired about this major issue than you arrived. We will also help you form an action plan for your next steps and how you can find ongoing support, guidance and collaboration so this is the perfect one-stop shop to build your knowledge and find motivation to join the journey.
