Protect Your Small Business from Climate Change

Help Your Business Thrive in a Changing Climate

15 June 2023, 12:30-13:30 GMT (+1), Reading Climate Festival

Small and micro businesses often believe they are immune to the risks posed by climate change, but the reality is they face the same threats as larger companies, if not more. Unfortunately, small businesses are often overlooked in discussions around climate change, despite needing the most help.

These businesses rarely own their own premises or have control over their choice of energy supplier, tariff, or HVAC plant. As a result, they may struggle to implement sustainability measures that can help them mitigate the risks of climate change.

This online seminar is designed to help small and micro businesses identify and mitigate the risks of climate change. We will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to make a commitment to being more sustainable in your operations.

Our expert speaker will share her insights and practical tips on:

  • Identifying the climate risks your business faces
  • Mitigating these risks with practical measures
  • Implementing sustainability measures that benefit your bottom line
  • Making a commitment to sustainability that will help your business thrive in a changing climate

If you’re a small or micro business owner looking to protect your business from the risks of climate change, don’t miss this opportunity to discover practical strategies to thrive in a changing climate. Join us at Reading Climate Festival and learn from UCEM’s very own environmental law expert and a programme leader Hazel Lobo and take a step towards a more sustainable future for your business.
