  • Carbon jargon busting - what Net Zero is vs Carbon Neural, Climate Negative vs Climate Positive and all those other confusing terms like Scopes of Emission and Offsetting?
  • How to measure your baseline / progress against a Net Zero target.
  • How to choose a Net Zero target that is ambitious and achievable.
  • Come up with a plan on how you'll achieve your Carbon Reductions.
