CeeD is excited to be hosting an event with Scottish Power Energy Networks and Star Refrigeration about sustainability and what this means to businesses in Scotland, on Tuesday 12th April from 9.30am to 12.30pm at the Technology Innovation Centre in Glasgow.

Join us to take part in the conversation on how businesses can learn from each other in order to meet their sustainability goals and objectives.  

  • - What do we mean by, and how do we define sustainability? What are the UN 17 Global Goals for sustainable development and managing climate change? Why does becoming a sustainable business make good business sense and what do businesses expect of their supply chain companies?

  • -  How do we develop a sustainability strategy and define our SPIs/targets; What are SPEN and Star Refrigeration doing at the moment, how did they get there and what does the future look like?

  • - What are the political and legislative drivers around the 'sustainability agenda'? What will organisations have to comply with and when? What do we mean by Scope 1,2, 3 Emissions , how can they be measured and what is the benefit of measuring them?

  • - What does it actually mean to deliver net zero/a just transition?  

  • - What tools and resources do we have at our disposal?
