This live event, designed for small and medium sized enterprises, will pack the entire Green Champions Planning Modules into one day, and is delivered first hand by our team of business experts, guest speakers and one-to-one advisors.

Get the skills and knowledge over 1,000 other professionals have already learnt through the Green Champions training course. Find out about available funding, understand the changing resource landscape and go beyond compliance to save money, grow profits and increase competitive advantage.
