Event Details

Are you in a business that wants to reduce its carbon footprint but isn’t sure where to start? Or maybe you’ve already taken the first steps but need a bit of help taking things to the next level? Join our free online Climate Action Workshop for Tairāwhiti businesses.
The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) will explain the opportunities climate action can create for your business and they’ll help you develop a plan to do that. You’ll also have time to connect online with other businesses in the Tairāwhiti region and share ideas.
The UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, will be held in the UK next month, so SBN have teamed up with the British High Commission Wellington to run this event as part of a series of regional online workshops teaching new skills and inspiring action.
Here’s what you can expect to get out of this workshop:

  • a practical understanding of the actions your business can take to reduce its emissions
  • a tailored action plan, containing simple steps to reduce your carbon emissions using the free online Climate Action Toolbox
  • help from our climate experts on setting targets, such as looking at Race To Zero – a global campaign rallying businesses, like yours, to take urgent climate action
  • guidance from the SBN team on how to build confidence and create change in your business. 

The workshop will be run by Phil Jones, who led the development of the Climate Action Toolbox, and Network Connector Ayla Irving-Lamb. We’re also delighted to welcome the British High Commission Wellington for an update on COP26 and the Race to Zero initiative.
This is an interactive workshop, spaces are limited so be in quick.
