The event will raise awareness of the support available to business owners, founders and leaders to help them make more informed decisions about what they can do, and what they need to do to comply with current government requirements and targets.

It will help businesses prioritise decarbonisation efforts by highlighting some case studies showing how they can make a difference.

Invited guests from Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Enterprise, Business Energy Scotland, University of Stirling and Flexibility Works will be in attendance and businesses will have the chance to speak of particular challenges and issues they might be facing through a panel discussion.
