OxLEP - SME Business Net Zero Masterclass

As market pressure mounts on business leaders to take more responsible and sustainable positions, it is hard to build a suitable plan that won’t break the bank or the company. There are tools and experience available to help small businesses, and this Masterclass will walk you through a selection of these.

Before the Masterclass, if you wish to prepare a first version of your business carbon footprint, we recommend visiting:


From that baseline we can begin to explore possible actions and prioritise these as the basis of a carbon reduction plan. The format of that plan will vary by sector and we will discuss these options in the Masterclass.

Expert 1:1 support is available post-workshop to help you to firm up your plans for Net Zero action.

The workshop will be led by Phil Curtis, a specialist in transforming businesses towards a high performance culture with a sustainable future.
