Low carbon seminar


Accountancy firm Francis Clark is co-hosting a breakfast seminar at the end of the month to discuss how the low carbon economy can be good for business.

The free to attend breakfast will be held at Epiphany House on January 31, where Francis Clark will be joined by speakers from Cornwall Development Company, MPAD and TJ International Ltd.

Topics covered will include the challenging targets for reduction of green house emissions set for the county by Cornwall Council and the implications for SMEs, as well as some of the reasons why many Cornish SMEs have already placed low carbon at the centre of their business strategy.

Richard Wadman, part of the Energy and Sustainability team at Francis Clark, which merged with Truro-based Winter Rule last year, said: “It’s all very well being told that we should embrace a low carbon economy because it’s the right thing to do and the best thing for the environment, but people often fail to explain why it’s in the best interest of the businesses.

“Our breakfast seminar will help to demonstrate how going low carbon can be good for your bottom line, with some great examples from companies in Cornwall which have led the way in reducing their carbon footprint. We will also be introduced to carbon accounting and the next stage, which may be the environmental profit and loss account on which sportswear company Puma have taken the lead.”

The ‘Love the planet: Love your bottom line’ seminar will run from 8am – 10am on Tuesday January 31. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
