Friday 20 August 2-3pm EST – Are carbon offsets right for your business?
The world of carbon offsets and “getting to net zero” are mind-boggling, even to the experts! There is so much spin out there and it would be easy to be a victim to “greenwashing”, buying credits off the internet thinking you are doing the right thing, but are those carbon emissions really being offset?
Wondering if reducing emissions is more important? or what the benefit of offsets are?
We’ll take you through the essentials you need to know.
In this session BBP will help you navigate the complex waters of carbon offsetting! We will look at some examples of carbon offsetting programs that BBP have met with and vetted to give you key indicators to look out for.
Friday 27 August 4.30-5.30pm EST – Happy Hour!
