Many organisations are reluctant to implement decarbonisation strategies through energy efficiency or demand reduction initiatives as they often come with a perceived hefty up-front cost. The current energy crisis has sent business energy bills through the roof and made the case for decarbonising all the more appealing. But how affordable is the path to net zero? And what funding is available to businesses? These are the questions that will be answered at this in person event.
This event will explore how affordable it is to decarbonise your operations and the support available, including financial aid, for your business. Aimed primarily at small and medium-sized entities, it will provide business members with insights to help improve how they manage their operations and take steps towards decreasing their carbon footprint in a cost effective manner.
