A Zero Carbon Christchurch

Sustainable Business Network and Enviro-Mark Solutions invite you to a collaborative conference on Friday, 11 October, to explore what a Zero Carbon Christchurch means for your business.

We’ll take a deep look at the impending Zero Carbon Amendment, covering the opportunities and implications for business and how your business can get ahead.

We will learn how your team can identify, develop and deliver sustainability initiatives within and outside of your organisation with case studies and a hands-on workshop.

We will expand the boundaries of this conference by engaging on a midday adventure with a choice of two unique destinations, and reconvene for the last learnings of the day – visions of a zero carbon Christchurch, employing a pecha kucha presentation to energise our evening.

And finally, we will network over some tasty nibbles and delicious drinks generously provided by The Fermentist and Yealands.

*Eco tours, food and drink are included in your ticket.
