The training will also provide a brief introduction to SBTs, and demonstrate how each College can produce their 2019/20 carbon emissions report using the tool.

The trainer is Chris Tuppen from Advancing Sustainability Limited.

The training is being delivered via Microsoft Teams.

There are 3 sessions available, these are identical sessions so please only book on ONE session
