Net Zero 360: Free business sustainability course comes to Arun

Net Zero 360 b A free business sustainability workshop has launched for businesses in Arun.

Net Zero 360, developed by the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform, is a two-part online workshop that helps businesses unlock the benefits of taking action to make their enterprise more sustainable.

Those benefits include reducing costs, attracting customers, boosting employee satisfaction, getting access to larger tender opportunities, and convincing investors of long-term prospects.

The workshop is run in partnership with Arun District Council and is exclusively for businesses in the area. It’s part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund which provides local authorities with funding for communities, places, businesses, people and skills.

The workshop is online and runs over two mornings: Monday 4 December and 11 December 10am – 1pm.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will have covered:

  • Climate change jargon-busting
  • Understanding where your business’s carbon emissions come from
  • Measuring your carbon footprint
  • Circular economy, reducing waste, and innovation
  • Creating a sustainability action plan for your business
  • Support and funding available to put your plan into action

One previous participant said: “I found this course extremely useful; it has kick-started our journey!”

The free workshop is part of Arun District Council’s commitment to sustainability and helping businesses make the transition to net zero.

Councillor Roger Nash, Chair of the Economy Committee at Arun District Council, said:

“More and more customers are seeking out businesses that have good eco-credentials so taking this course could be a real boost to your business, as well as the obvious benefits to the environment at a time when we all need to be thinking about our carbon footprint.”
