Many businesses in Nottingham have either started their carbon neutral journey, or they’re wondering where to start. This is where NTU’s Sustainability in Enterprise programme comes in, providing practical support and funding to reduce the carbon footprint of eligible Nottingham SMEs.

The UK Government’s 2050 net zero and Nottingham City Council’s carbon neutral 2028 pledges have set ambitious emissions reduction targets, with the aim being to keep temperatures below a 1.5c rise vs pre-industrial levels – a threshold that scientists agree we really don’t want to cross if we want to avoid the full catastrophic potential of global heating.

Join us for what will be a fascinating event.
