Introducing the SME Pathway to Zero Carbon

Host: University of Derby

Cost: FREE


Wednesday, 1st December 2021 at 8:30am - 9:30am

What is this session about?

At our Sustainability Summit in September 2021, 40% of businesses had already agreed a net-zero target, with 34% making a public declaration of their ambition. However, while 17% had created a plan to deliver net zero, 53% had not yet agreed their plan.

The University of Derby has been helping SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) become cleaner and greener for years. So we know growing your business while being kind to the planet isn’t always easy. That’s why we are launching our SME Pathway to Zero Carbon. It’s a step-by-step online guide to reducing carbon emissions, better resource efficiency, sustainable supply chains and the circular economy.
