    According to the government’s Energy White Paper, offices currently account for 80% of private sector greenhouse gas emissions. Likewise, associated activities such as employee transport, transit of goods and services, as well as goods and services themselves have been identified as key issues around decarbonisation. With so much going on to decarbonise our homes, where do we start in our offices/operations, and how do we become greener as organisations?

    What will be covered:

    Understanding the office/operation context – what areas do we need to look at?

    How do we measure our impact? – scope reporting and key areas, ESG targets

    What does good look like? – ESG, accreditations and strategy

    Office solutions – energy usage and generation, IT, waste and water

    Operational solutions – fleet electrical vehicles, responsibly-sourced materials, green procurement practices

    Transport solutions – electrical vehicles/infrastructure, green vehicle usage

    Long-term considerations – agile working, office need, infrastructure
