As working from home (WFH) becomes ‘the new normal’ for many, this Business in the Community (BITC) peer learning forum will discuss how employers can influence environmental action when they don’t control their employees’ work spaces. Explore how to work with landlords, and those WFH, to reduce the environmental impact of business premises and homes

The aims and objectives of the event
This peer learning forum will bring together BITC Environment partners to discuss how to work with landlords to:

  • engage in zero carbon energy and manage waste removal
  • measure environmental impacts within premises
  • develop future environmental infrastructure.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences and real time questions into the session. We will be joined by Peter Ramsey, Circular Procurement Campaign Manager at BITC and BITC Environment Adviser Elizabeth Edgington will present best practice and examples.

Audience
This event is free for BITC members with an environment partnership. It has been designed for environment and sustainability practitioners and managers.

Background
Our world economy faces unprecedented environmental challenges: a changing climate, biodiversity breakdown, and resource constraints. Organisations without a clear environmental commitment will not understand or be equipped to manage the risks and the opportunities these challenges present.

How do you fulfil the commitments you make when the premises you operate from are not owned by your organisation? In this situation, some of your environmental impacts are managed or influenced by another organisation?

Contact details and further information

Following government advice on social distancing, all BITC events over the coming months will be delivered remotely via digital technology. Details on how to join will be sent prior to the event.
