Advanced Net Zero

For an organisation to have a target related to net zero or reducing emissions might seem like it is enough. In most cases, it is just the start.

This advanced course moves beyond the basics and focuses on specific areas that businesses can improve upon in order to establish and develop their strategies and drive change towards achieving net zero.

It will cover a variety of advanced topics, from how to measure sustainability and how it is being offset to how to create a climate strategy and dedicated action plan for your organisation.

Who is the course for?

This course is suitable for decision makers / policy writers who are driving strategic change within an organisation.

It will develop skills and knowledge to know what this area is and how it is applicable to them whilst making sure they avoid any sense of greenwashing that is quite prevalent in this area.
