Lunch and Learn – A Tonne of Feathers or a Tonne of Carbon?
This event has passed.
What weighs more, a tonne of feathers? An age-old trick question, straight from the school yard. But if you were asked what generated a tonne of carbon from your business activities, would you know?
We’ve nearly all heard of the term carbon footprint, with many organisations recording and publishing theirs already. In many cases these are performed by professionals. It’s true, you can’t manage what you don’t measure, but understanding of the results is equally important, especially for those starting out on their sustainability journey.
In this Lunch & Learn the Chamber Low Carbon team will take you through the basics of carbon footprinting for your organisation’s operational activities. The presentation will explain what a carbon footprint is, how it is measured along with some energy metrics to give perspective on the impacts of energy use.
Finally, we will round off with what actions you can take and advice on how you can reduce your organisation’s carbon footprint.
