Recently Grace Conisbee of Innes England supported a co-created programme at Nottingham Trent University - known as one of the most sustainable universities in the world.
The 'new' Carbon Management Programme was created in response to The UK Government 2050 Net Zero and Nottingham City Council Carbon Neutral 2028 ambitious carbon reduction targets. Businesses are required to respond to help reduce risk and save on costs.
A recent poll conducted by O2 and the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), found that only 1 in 10 SMEs measure their carbon emissions due to lack of expertise.
The programme supports eligible SME's in Nottingham with a series of workshops designed to give businesses step-by-step guidance on how to measure and manage their carbon emissions.
Innes England were delighted to have been invited to support in the design of the programme’s content and format.
Grace Conisbee, Management Surveyor commented:
"The session was great. We got to discuss our thoughts and feelings of the proposed workshop advising on how the planned sessions can be improved.
Working in collaboration with experts in the field, recording carbon emissions is now being made a priority for our business. We feel that this is necessary to understand our current output in order to quantify our improvements over the coming months/years.
We are signed up to undertake the Sustainability in Enterprise Carbon Management Workshop in the New Year. We feel it is essential that we play a key part in leading the region and promoting sustainability in practice as well as advising our clients accordingly. Working with NTU and engaging in these programmes will be essential in moving our knowledge and practice into more sustainably conscious firm."
