In July 2019 a number of members gathered to share and learn about developing a successful sustainability strategy. This follow on event will support those still putting together their strategies, but will also look at how we embed these across an organisation and ensure that we can start to deliver their objectives.
The challenge of setting Net Zero targets in the charity sector and beyond
'Net zero' is becoming an increasingly familiar term, with political parties, public bodies and businesses using it to frame their decarbonisation targets.

We bring you some of the key questions and considerations discussed.
