Best Practices in Reducing Carbon Emissions and Costs for SMEs

 Registration is closed for this event

GreenTech Exchange in collaboration with Climate Smart is pleased to deliver a forum exploring the best practices in reducing carbon emissions and costs with examples from two local case studies. Entrepreneurs are faced with the challenge of maintaining a successful business while making a low impact on the environment and saving money. This can all be done with some insightful planning on the company operation’s design and a focus on sustainable, energy conserving priorities. Come share your opinion and hear about the journey that T&T Supermarket and Van Houtte Coffee undertook as they participated in the Climate Smart training program to lower their carbon emissions.
