Free Workshops to Help Firms Cut CO2 Emissions

Carbon Trust Logo

Carbon Trust LogoThe Carbon Trust has launched a series of free workshops across the UK to help businesses reduce their carbon emissions.

Businesses that attend the events will be taught how to measure and reduce their carbon footprint. The workshops will also include advice on how to achieve the newly launched Carbon Trust Standard, which is awarded to businesses who have made a significant year–on–year reduction in their carbon emissions.

“In these tough economic times and with rising energy prices, it has never been so important to cut your carbon emissions and gain bottom–line benefits,”

said Carbon Trust solutions director Hugh Jones.

“These workshops allow attendees to mix with fellow businesses in their region and receive practical guidance on how to achieve real reductions.”

Similar events held by the Carbon Trust earlier in 2008 attracted over 1,300 businesses. One attendee, Trueform Engineering quality manager Ian Thomas, said:

“The clear format of the day and informative presentation at the Carbon Trust workshop gave me the necessary building blocks that I needed to understand my company’s carbon footprint.

“I went from zero knowledge to feeling confident and motivated enough to begin creating a realistic reporting process within Trueform Engineering,” he added.

The workshops are scheduled to run until October. For details of events in your region visit the Carbon Trust website or call the events team on 0800 077 8727
