Webinar will advise how to reduce waste and increase profitability
Small to medium-sized businesses across Warwickshire are being supported by Warwickshire County Council, Warwick and Stratford District Councils to achieve Net Zero emissions as part of a new and free webinar series.
A series of webinars, delivered by Sustainability West Midlands, covers various aspects of sustainability and achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The webinars follow feedback from businesses across the region that despite the frequency with which sustainability is being discussed there is still lack of clarity around how businesses should respond to it.
The UK Government has set a target to reach Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050. It has also enshrined this in law, so the target will have to be met, and Warwickshire businesses will have to be part of this solution. In addition to this the County Council, Warwick District Council and Stratford District Council have set more ambitious targets they want to work fowards to achieve Net Zero by 2030.
There has never been a better time than right now for businesses across the county to start thinking about sustainability.
Webinar sessions will cover the following topics:
- Reduce your waste, increase profitability - 5th April
- Greener transport - 26th April
- Energy saving in your small business - 10th May
- Engaging your employees and customers - 24th May

Cllr Heather Timms, Portfolio Holder for Environment, Climate and Culture, said: “2050 may seem like it is a long way off, but rapid changes are required to achieve Net Zero and many customers will be demanding actions now from the businesses that they trade with.
“These webinars, used elsewhere in the region, are already ensuring that businesses are making these changes and taking advantage of the short-term quick-wins that are available.
“Net Zero and sustainability are being hailed as the next industrial revolution, so I would advise all businesses to sign up to this webinar series today and to begin their journey to Net Zero, sustainability and a brighter future for all.”
