Yet many businesses feel overwhelmed when they look at how to get started and where to focus their efforts.
To share what UKHospitality are doing to support hospitality businesses in reducing their impact on the climate, we’re joined by Kate Nicholls OBE, their CEO who talks through the practical ways that businesses can get started on this.
Together with the Zero Carbon Forum, represented by their Director, Kristen Filice, UKHospitality have created a Carbon Calculator, which helps simplify the process of calculating emissions for businesses large and small. Kate and Kristen talk about their collaboration and the tools and tips both organisations have developed that help businesses get started with a sustainability strategy and take practical steps to reduce their emissions, really engage staff and deliver their sustainability goals.
