Eastbourne businesses are invited to take part in a free online sustainability workshop over two mornings.

Net Zero 360, developed by the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform, is a two-part workshop that helps businesses unlock the benefits of taking action on sustainability.

These benefits include reducing costs, attracting customers, boosting employee satisfaction, getting access to larger tender opportunities, and convincing investors of long-term prospects.

The workshop is run in partnership with Eastbourne Borough Council and is exclusively for businesses in the area. It is part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Councillor Jim Murray, Cabinet Member for Climate Change, said: “These free sessions have been specially designed to help Eastbourne businesses across all sectors get to grips with sustainability.

“This council is committed to making the transition to carbon net zero and helping local businesses on their sustainability journey is very much part of this process.”

The workshop is online and runs over two mornings. There are two sets of dates available:

Option 1: Monday 13 November and Monday 20 November, both 10am – 1pm.

Option 2: Wednesday 6 December and Wednesday 13 December, both 10am – 1pm.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will have covered:

  • Climate change jargon-busting
  • Understanding where your business’s carbon emissions come from
  • Measuring your carbon footprint
  • Circular economy, reducing waste, and innovation
  • Creating a sustainability action plan for your business
  • Support and funding available to put your plan into action
