Here is What We Have Planned For You
Measuring Business Impact
Thursday, September 24, 2020 | 1:00 PM
Hosted by Green Economy London and Project Neutral
Join Green Economy London and Project Neutral to learn about the importance of measuring the impacts your business has on the environment. This includes areas such as ghg emissions from heating/cooling and electricity usage, transportation related emissions, water usage, and the amount of waste your business produces. All of these factor into the overall impact your business has on the environment. Think about it, how can you track reductions if you don’t know where your starting point is? When you make your carbon footprint visible, it helps to define where to make changes and encourages people to want to make changes.
If your business is interested in aligning with the UN’s Sustainable Development goals, impact measurement is an important part in achieving these goals. Learn how to connect metrics that will help you meet the SDGs related to environmental sustainability.
Jake Miller from Project Neutral will teach you how to use the Project Neutral calculator to measure your individual environmental impact. This is a great opportunity to use this calculator as an employee engagement tool, and get employees onboard with your business sustainability goals.
