Join us for a not-to-be-missed event at Centrestage Kilmarnock
11:00am to 3:00pm, Friday 8th December | £Free
With almost 50 businesses in East Ayrshire now on a Certified Net Zero Journey, this is the ideal opportunity to join us to meet the wider business community, enjoy drop-in learning and networking, and find out more about how to get involved in our upcoming Net Zero Accelerator Cohorts.
In addition to our Meet the Experts Mini Expo, where you have the opportunity to find out more about the journey of Net Zero industry-leaders, Networking Opportunities are available throughout the day. This is your chance to meet other early adoptors from Ayshire, now a UK force in the drive from Net Zero.
Gavin Tweedie, Founder & CEO Of Net Zero Nation, said:
“In the last two years Ayrshire has established itself as a real powerhouse for tangible Net Zero action in the United Kingdom. This event is an excellent opportunity for organisations and individuals to find out more about not only the Net Zero Journey to date in Ayrshire, but the business benefits of carbon reduction and certification of your activity and action plan. Exhibitors include experts from a variety of areas, Green Procurement, Energy Monitoring & Control, Financial & IT Support, HR & Cultural Change and more.
“Having worked extensively in Ayrshire, we’re excited to bring together businesses to discuss, network and find opportunities for growth and collaboration in different sectors and industries. We’re keen to widen our reach locally, especially with companies pitching for local, national or larger scale contracts where your commitment to Net Zero can make an impact on tender scoring. Sustainability and environmental credentials are no longer ‘nice to have’ – they are key for businesses going forward.
“There can be a lot of confusion around decarbonisation, and it can be seen as an expense or administrative burden, rather than a positive step. For those not sure where to start, this is an excellent place for conversation and guidance on what is available, as well as finding out what we can offer through hands-on guidance and strategy creation through to carbon measuring and certification of action plans.
“With a new Net Zero Accelerator Programme Cohort beginning in East Ayrshire in early 2024, we are looking forward to chatting with businesses who would like to find out more about the programme, and funding opportunities available, too.”
The event commences with open and welcome introductions at 11am. Meet the Experts drop in Expo and Networking take places between 11am – 3pm at Centrestage, 15 Elmbank Drive, Kilmarnock.
Hot drinks and mince pies will be available on the day. The event is free to attend, however a discretionary donation to our hosts Centrestage, who use the arts to bring people of all ages and backgrounds together, would be much appreciated.
