Help us to help you

We’re keen to ensure that the webinar captures the information that our clients want and need and would welcome the opportunity to prepare responses to any questions or challenges that organisations would like to discuss. As such we are asking those with an interest in the sector to answer a number of questions, the responses from which we will consider when we finalise the webinar content.

Please take a few minutes to respond to Guy Robertson, providing your answers to some or all of the following questions and any others that you believe are key to the process of decarbonisation:

1. Does your company have or intend to develop a Decarbonisation Strategy?

2. Has or will your company set specific carbon reduction targets, and are these science-based?

3. Do you believe that it is achievable for your company to reach Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050?

4. Where do you see the biggest scope for carbon reduction and what technologies do you intend to use to deliver these savings?

5. What are the most significant barriers you perceive to decarbonising your business?
