Join this webinar to hear how your business can achieve net zero emissions. The webinar will provide an overview on managing emissions that cannot be eliminated through investing in initiatives to repair and rebuild build sinks that absorb greenhouse gases. There are many options to choose – from investing in natural based solutions, such as soil, peat, mangroves; protecting ancient forests; reforestation; and technologies such as carbon capture and storage, as well as financing sustainable development.

About this event
Hear best practice from businesses that have started the process of investing in offsetting, while ensuring that they are strategic and effective in meeting their net zero carbon targets.

Guest speakers

  • Cameron Wilson, Associate Director – Eco-Act
  • Carmel McQuaid, Sustainable Business Director – M&S

Audience
This event is free to members and non-members of Business in the Community (BITC).
This event is suitable for environment and sustainability, community and premise managers.  

Background
Businesses setting net zero carbon targets can reach this ambition by taking two approaches – reducing the production man-made emissions from sources and capturing in sinks through natural carbon sinks and offsetting initiatives.

In an urban environment nature-based solutions that help build resilience to climate change, can also act as carbon sinks. Green and blue spaces such as sustainable drainage systems (SuDS), wetlands, green roofs and walls, and street trees all provide a multitude of environmental benefits including carbon capture, energy savings and resilience to extreme weather incidents.
