Ready for Net Zero Growth

A 18-week Growth Plan programme to enable the next phase of your growth

The Ready for Net Zero Growth programme helps your business take a leap on its growth trajectory with a focus on embedding your businesses Net Zero ambitions within your growth plan. Our 18-week Net Zero Growth Plan process shows you how to critically review your business, asks challenging questions, and thoroughly interrogates what is and isn’t working. The programme will also enable you to understand your carbon footprint and why it matters, as well as make a plan to reduce emissions and reap the rewards of doing so as part of your growth strategy.

Whether you want to transform your company from a life-style business into a fast-growth business, make sure you can survive the impact of Covid-19 and leaving the EU, or you want to take the opportunities available to grow your business to the next level, the Ready for Net Zero Growth programme will support you to achieve your goal.

We use the same Growth Plan process used in the highly successful and popular Business Growth Programme, which in its thirty-year history has helped over 3,000 businesses to grow better. We will introduce you to the relevant business concepts so that you can apply these to your business. You will also be encouraged to engage with your fellow business owners and managers on the programme, supporting each other to succeed.

As a result of this journey, you will be clearer about the vision for your company, the next steps you have to take to achieve it, and how to grow your network of support, business advisors and contacts. Going through this proven process will get you the results faster than just working through the frameworks alone.

The Ready for Net Zero Growth Programme aims to equip participants with:

  • Awareness of the relationship between climate change and emissions, and an understanding of how their organisation contributes to global warming through scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions
  • Methods, tools, technologies and techniques to measure current emissions, set future science-based targets to reduce those emissions, and track progress over time
  • Practical steps they can take to make their operations, products and services less carbon intensive, and therefore more attractive to customers
  • Knowledge of how they can derive commercial benefits from their decarbonisation through reporting, reduced operational costs, and via marketing to drive sales growth
  • A growth plan for the future that embeds their business’s net zero ambitions.

The programme concludes with participants making a pledge to the UN’s Race to Net Zero Initiative as a visible commitment to their Net Zero ambitions.
