always possible CEO Richard Freeman will chair Brighton Chamber’s Big Debate this month
Businesses need to re-think what they do, because getting to Net Zero means changing how they behave.
80% of businesses in Sussex don’t know what their carbon footprint is. So how can they claim that they are reducing it?
The UN – and the UK government – are setting their stalls out with ambitious targets for cutting carbon emissions. If these are to be met, then the price of using fossil fuels will soon become prohibitive.
In manufacturing, data storage, logistics, energy, packaging, materials or travel – for all businesses it is not just operational decisions that will need to change, but also how suppliers are chosen, and how customers are informed.
Do you know…
- the difference between Net Zero and carbon neutral?
- how to measure the carbon footprint of your supply chain?
- the relationship between your business model and carbon emissions?
- where the smallest changes in a business will have the biggest impact?
Most business leaders haven’t got a clue.
But with a reputation for innovation, creativity and environmental activism, is it time for Brighton to lead the way?
