Don’t miss your chance for FREE support on your journey to net zero

The transition to net zero is a key priority for many businesses, and for businesses in Trafford, free support is available.

For many businesses, the journey to net zero is not just about switching to renewable energy and electric vehicles, but about how relationships with suppliers and partners are managed to ensure that, working collaboratively, the entire supply chain can be made more sustainable.

If you’re a small or medium enterprise (SME) in the Trafford borough, Green Economy, part of The Growth Company, are offering fully-funded places on their three day course, which looks to prepare businesses to continue on their journey to net zero energy. Please note free places are limited to one per business. Funded places are also limited, so get in touch today to secure yours!

Hosted at Saint Anthonys Centre, Trafford Park (M17 1JF), the course will allow learners to explore the full potential of net zero, and how to embed greener practices into the workplace at all levels, to ensure a holistic approach to sustainable processes.

The course runs over three days:

  • Thursday 4th July – 9.30am – 4.30pm
  • Thursday 11th July – 9.30am – 4.30pm
  • Thursday 18th July – 9.30am – 4.30pm

For additional places for SMEs, or once the funded places are fully booked, prices are £495 per learner for microbusinesses, £595 per learner for SMEs and £695 per learner for larger businesses. Discounts are available for multiple bookings. Businesses can also claim 25% off for a limited time only by entering the promotional code NetZeroTrafford at the checkout.
