The European Commission is changing the landscape for tackling the approach to climate change. They’ve made their ambition to become Climate Neutral by 2050 clear, as it becomes paramount for companies operating inside Europe to understand what this means for them. Given the climate crisis is upon us, questions like ‘How can I become Carbon Neutral?’ or ‘What is the difference between Net-Zero and Climate Positive?’ are pivotal towards understanding what needs to be done to protect nature and humanity.
That’s why the EIC GHG programme offers EIC beneficiaries the chance to assess, track and reduce their carbon footprint. The programme entails several different aspects, including a dedicated GHG tool to help you to quantify and measure your carbon footprint, monthly thematic and sectorial webinars, and other specific resources to support you with trustworthy mitigation measures further.
If you care as much as we do, make sure to tune in and have a more detailed insight regarding all things carbon neutral-related during this dedicated webinar, taking place at the EIC Summit 2021.
Take note: happening on November 25, 2021, 11:00 to 11:45 (CEST), this webinar is for SMEs that want to know more about what it means to strive for Climate Neutrality and the benefits it brings to your company.
The agenda will entail a 30min presentation followed by a 15min Q&A session. Plus, include:
A description of general GHG management systems like Science Based Targets
A presentation of the context and dynamics of the voluntary carbon market
Some insights related to Climate Projects: how they can compensate for emissions not yet reduced to zero and the main principles behind that can guarantee the credibility of these projects
The difference between Carbon Neutrality, Climate Neutrality, Net-Zero, Climate Positive, etc.
How companies can voluntarily obtain accreditation for Carbon Neutrality and how it benefits them
