Very often, the barrier to low carbon success is not a lack of technological solutions, clever tools or even money. What often holds us back is the way we’ve always done things. Breaking away from that inertia is a challenge that all organisations face, with many struggling with a combination of culture and process change. Freya Crunden, Environmental Consultant, Atkins will explore some of the behaviours individuals can cultivate to do their bit to reach Net Zero, and how an organisations can support and draw on the skills and enthusiasm of its people to reduce its carbon impact.
