Carbon Taxes: What do they mean for Your Business?

Carbon Pricing is coming. What can your business do to prepare and build a more resilient business?

One of the major outcomes of COP26 is expected to be the agreement of Carbon Pricing. We’re not sure what form this will take, but we do know it’s coming.

In this hour long webinar, we’ll be hearing from carbon reduction experts ANEC and Small99 on how you can:

Prepare for Carbon Taxes
Reduce your carbon footprint effectively to reduce risk to carbon fines
Why reducing emissions now means you save money in the future
Potential cost models carbon pricing may take
If you’re a small business, this talk is a vital introduction into the world of emissions, and will get you clued up on the practical steps you can take to build a better business in the future.

How to Reduce Plastic Packaging in Your eCommerce Business

We chat to Shaunak at Omvits, who have recently reduced and replaced as much of the plastic in their business possible.

This will be a really practical talk for those out there who are dreaming of going plastic-free but are unsure where to start. We’ll be hearing from the team who have done it, as they share their top tips on what to do (and not do).

Omvits is on a mission to make sustainable, ocean-friendly and cruelty-free supplements that protect the health of people and our planet. Since launching in 2017, they have become one of the fastest growing brands in the supplements industry and helped to provide life-changing vitamins to over 25,000 underprivileged children around the world.

Where to Start with Net Zero in Your Small Business

What does net zero mean for small business? In this webinar, we talk you through the practical info you need to get started. 

Everyone is talking about carbon reduction and environmental challenges, but there is little guidance out there for small business owners.

99% of the UK economy is a small business with less than 49 employees. Over 5 million (96%) of these have less than 9. These small businesses are the backbone of the economy, but no-one out there is helping them get started.

Much of the current guidance is jargon heavy and written by public sector organisations. As business owners, you have limited time and resources to understand it all and wade through long, heavy PDFs to learn what you need to do.

At this short webinar, we’ll be cutting through the noise to give you some simple steps to get started on your journey to running a more sustainable, net-zero friendly company.
