What Businesses like yours have said about the Workshops:

The CRAB workshop was brilliant! Took a subject that I found quite overwhelming and broke it down into manageable chunks that were easy to understand and digest. Inspirational!

I found the workshop hugely insightful, especially comparing where I thought the highest emissions for my business come from to where they actually do! It's a brilliant starting point for building your carbon reduction plan, taking away the scary element of not knowing where to begin or how to find the important info!

The workshop was super helpful and widened my understanding of climate reduction while providing realistic options for our organisation.

The facilitator talked through the various aspects of the plan, helped provide knowledge and has given me confidence to know we are on the right journey towards Net Zero. The workshop wasn't full of jargon and I would certainly recommend.

It was so practical and actionable, and the conversations it so easily and naturally sparked were amazingly positive! something that feels very daunting and intimidating to a lot of people, this made it feel very do-able!
