Full day workshop for 30 businesses

Dates: September 2023 – February 2024

Worcestershire County Council reached out to us wanting to run a high impact 1 day event to rapidly upskill 30 businesses on sustainability. The aim was to inspire local businesses and bring them together to collaborate, while also giving them all of the tools they needed to meet Net Zero requirements within a day. 

We delivered a blend of presentation as well as group work using CRAB, which worked well to break up the afternoon. Delivery was in person at Worcester Cricket Club, with full lunch and refreshments making the day a great success. 

Businesses left the day having built their carbon reduction plan, with an estimate of their carbon footprint generated using Small99’s calculator, and had connected with other businesses locally for collaboration.
