OB2 - a partnership between OBBS and Oxfordshire Business First to support SMEs in Oxfordshire - is organising a short sustainability programme focused on helping business leaders to ‘Tame the Carbon Monster’ and make progress towards Net Zero.
This programme builds on the success of the Oxfordshire Business First Carbon Monsters event held in April 2022 and is delivered by the Oxfordshire Greentech, a network with over 100 members to stimulate and grow the low/zero carbon agenda across business, public sector and academia.
The programme is being supported by Oxford City Council under their ARG #Buildbackbetter Grants project. Eligible organisations will be able to benefit from reduced programme fees (discounted from £100 to £50 for all sessions).
SMEs are responsible for nearly half the UK’s business-related emissions, and large companies are increasingly focusing on their supply chain to reduce their environmental impact. If you lead an SME, it will help you learn how to:
- Clarify your environmental priorities
- Implement carbon reductions
- Use data to make decisions
- Build the business for investment
- Engage staff and suppliers
The workshop sessions are being run in conjunction with Oxfordshire Greentech and will be delivered by experienced local sustainability practitioners and Brookes academics. You will receive a certificate of participation on completion of the workshop sessions.
All sessions will be held on the Oxford Brookes Headington Campus (subject to availability). We encourage all participants to use public transport or cycles etc to reach the venue.
