A FREE seminar aimed at helping businesses achieve net zero is coming to Hampshire in February.

Three keynote speakers from country firms operating across different sectors will be on hand to offer specialist insight about working towards carbon neutrality.

Net zero carbon dioxide emissions is very much the holy grail for many businesses, not only boosting action against climate change but demonstrating the green credentials that can lead to better stakeholder engagement, higher revenue and reduced costs.

The Government’s Build Back Greener strategy sets out policies and proposals for decarbonising all sectors of the UK economy to meet a net zero target by 2050.

The seminar is being organised jointly by HWB Chartered Accountants, financial advisers Eight Wealth Management and cost, procurement and carbon solutions company Auditel (U.K.).

‘Essential Advice for your Net Zero Journey’ will be held from 8am to 10am on Wednesday, February 8 at the Axis Conference Centre at Southampton Science Park on Venture Road.

David Wilshin, carbon and procurement specialist at Winchester-based Auditel, will provide practical tips on how to make a business carbon neutral.

David has a passion for the environment and sustainability, and has worked with blue chip companies helping them reduce their carbon footprint without impacting upon service levels and costs.

He said: “In the current challenging economic climate, organisations are battling with the desire to drive growth and profitability while investing in low carbon emitting technologies to reduce their carbon footprint and speed up their journey to achieving net zero. We are there to help.”

Meanwhile, Andy McKee, wealth management consultant at Eight Wealth Management, will look at green investments.

He said: “My job is to help clients set out and accomplish their goals, enabling them to feel confident in their financial future and retirement plans – and to do so in a sustainable way.
