Take the First Step – Net Zero Strategy for Social Enterprise

23 February 2021, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Angus SEN, Dundee SEN and Perth & Kinross SEN are inviting you to an introduction to the Net Zero and networking event. If you are fully committed to greening your organisation or have not yet started, then come along and find out what steps you can take. Whether that is in reducing transport costs and emissions, saving energy and reducing building operation costs or engaging in a more circular economy.

There are not only economic and environmental benefits to taking some first steps on the road to a more sustainable business, there is also the chance to be ahead in this important area. COP 26 is being hosted in Glasgow in November 2021 and there is a real determination that social enterprise will be able to demonstrate its worth in this field.
