With #Cop28 on the horizon, tangible progress is being made within the SME community in Scotland.
One Net Zero Accelerator Cohort in East Ayrshire are demonstrating the power of the programme as they share their progress in implementing monthly carbon accounts and creating their carbon reduction plans.
Hosted at HALO #RockMe Workspace, the Accelerator "Manage" session encourages sharing valuable learnings by the group. Examples included...
Put processes in place to capture, measure and digitally report on emissions
Assign an owner and make data available within workflows to streamline and automate the process
Use Fuel Cards as a way of digital tracking fuel based emissions
Use digital waste consignment notes to simplify data capture and reporting
Enhance internal communications using a method such as https://lnkd.in/dsGnmcw "Make a difference" which helps teams better relate and support each other
When you have a purchase decision to make, lean into your cohort and ask them for their experience and opinions on the solutions you are looking at
Leverage the support that is available by sharing your carbon reduction plans with your economic advisors and exploit the plethora of funding options that exist to help companies enact their carbon reduction plans
Stress the role that Collaboration has in tackling Net Zero together as a group, rather than doing it on your own
Recognise that helping inspire and supporting companies on their own Net Zero journey has a positive impact on your brand
