Driving Net Zero Transformation

The Councils representing the Mid South West are delighted to announce the launch of their new ‘Driving Net Zero Transformation’ Programme in partnership with Carbonfit, a team of sustainability experts who have created a carbon intelligence platform, to Simplify Carbon Reporting & Reduction.

The programme has been funded through Innovate UK’sFast Followers’ programme  and aims to assist local businesses in their transition towards achieving net-zero emissions.  The MSW region is one of 21 Local Authority areas from across the UK to receive a share of £6m funding to support progress towards Net Zero

As part of this programme we will be working with our partners at Carbonfit to deliver:

A 6-part webinar series: This short course consists of 6 x 1hr sessions that is designed to create a building-block approach to guide businesses through a better understanding of their current baseline, and will give practical skills to help you measure and monitor a useful carbon reduction plan that can be utilised as part of the businesses sustainability ambitions and actions. It is strongly recommended that businesses join each webinar to gain the most value from the series.
