Our latest survey on the net zero economy*, conducted in partnership with O2, showed that just one in ten businesses are measuring their carbon footprint, with 30% claiming that high up front adaptation costs and a lack of finance is holding them back. The research also showed that only one in seven have set targets to reduce their emissions – down from one in five when firms were surveyed in February 2020.
Despite a lack of awareness on carbon footprints, many firms are still taking a wide variety of positive actions to reduce their emissions and become greener. This event will provide SMEs with an understanding of the net zero economy and the steps they can take now to ensure we meet our ambitious targets.
Leading the way to net zero, a panel event delivered in partnership with O2, will enable participants to:
Gain a deeper understanding of net zero and the impact it will have on their business
Understand the steps they should take to realise their Net Zero ambitions and the role that technology and connectivity can play
Hear from others about their experience and learnings so far
Take away details of the tools available to them to help them on their net zero journey.
