  • Workshop 2: Emissions baseline calculation
    Learn how to identify organisational boundaries; define scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, use the MFE 2020 carbon calculator, enter your 2020-21 financial year data and measure your current emissions

  • Workshop 3: Decarbonisation strategy
    Learn how to create a strategic plan to guide day-to-day activity, identify creative solutions to lower emissions, build a unified vision to engage your team to take action
