Are you a little baffled by how to do measuring & managing of your company’s carbon footprint? Do you suspect that it can improve your bottom line but want some irrefutable proof? If you’re a small to medium-sized business looking for a way to measure your carbon footprint and then reduce it, you won’t want to miss this workshop! It will be time well spent.
We are pleased to have Dr. Joe Kelly present a workshop on measuring and managing a business’ carbon footprint. Businesses are facing significant pressures from a variety of sources to reduce their carbon footprint, including government, industry regulators and consumers, who are demanding environmentally sustainable practices from the businesses they buy from. Reducing an organization’s carbon footprint is an essential part of a comprehensive business strategy for companies of all shapes and sizes.
Yet, while many businesses want to reduce their carbon emissions, they may find the prospect overwhelming. Where to start? What to measure? How to keep track of their progress? The task can be daunting and often inhibits them from taking the first step.This workshop is designed to give participants an introduction to measuring, tracking and reducing corporate greenhouse gas emissions. We are confident that this will be an excellent investment to reduce operating costs and build brand value in an area of strategic importance.
