Carbon Trust Scotland, in partnership with the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, is hosting a FREE business breakfast, designed specifically to help local SMEs in their carbon reduction efforts.
The breakfast, which is being held at Grill on the Corner on Bothwell Street on 8 June, will open for registration at 8.00am and run from 8.30am to 10.30am. Attendees at the free event will enjoy an informal introduction to the Carbon Trust's support services and what is on offer for Scottish businesses with an overview on how to:
- Raise staff awareness and improve the level of employee engagement
- Complete energy action plans and develop an energy policy
- Realise business benefits through identifying and implementing energy saving measures
- Map an organisation's carbon footprint
The briefing will then focus on Carbon Management Plans for Scottish SME private sector businesses.
Eileen Findlay from Carbon Trust Scotland said "This Business Breakfast is a great opportunity for us to meet local SMEs and discuss their unique requirements.
"Being among the first SMEs in Scotland to develop a Carbon Management Plan (CMP) can bring significant 'green marketing' opportunities to Glasgow businesses and help identify significant cost savings."
The business breakfast on June 8, 2012 at Grill on the Corner. Bothwell Street, Glasgow, opens at 8am for an 8.30am start. Breakfast will be provided and there is an opportunity for networking.
