The very phrase ‘Net Zero’ implies a degree of offsetting, perhaps the most controversial topic in Sustainability. In this session we will guide you through the offsetting minefield, taking an objective look at the concept and how to approach it without falling into the greenwash trap or distracting from your carbon reductions. Here’s what we will cover:
• What is offsetting?
• The ethical argument over offsetting
• Offsetting pros and cons
• Avoiding the greenwash trap
Your tutor is respected green business expert Gareth Kane. Gareth is the owner of Terra Infirma Ltd and has worked with hundreds of organisations from micro businesses to trans- national corporations to improve their environmental and economic performance. Gareth has authored five Sustainability books, including The Green Executive, and has trained thousands of people in green business issues.
Green Academy sessions are run on-line using the Zoom platform which runs on all major operating systems. You will need either a headset for your computer or access to a phone line for audio.
You will receive a workbook (in pdf format) with your sign up instructions before the session. During the session itself, you will be invited to complete sections of the workbook which will allow you to apply the concepts to your organisation and provide you with a ready-to-go action plan.
