Eco friendly: Planet Mark, an environmental consultancy, will launch a Government-backed roadshow to educate firms on reducing their carbon footprint
Its Zero Carbon Tour around the UK will advise companies to avoid air travel for business trips by holding virtual meetings and encourage flexible working to reduce the energy used in offices.
It will also coax firms to switch to green energy suppliers and introduce electric company car fleets and carsharing schemes.
Planet Mark hopes to persuade 15,000 companies to set net zero carbon targets over the three-month tour, ranging from small firms to those with 1,000-plus staff.
Barclays, NatWest and Transport for London are among those that will take part.
Planet Mark is a partner of Race to Zero, the UN backed campaign to rally companies to halve carbon emissions by 2030
The roadshow will start in Cambridge and end in Glasgow ahead of the UN’s Cop26 climate change conference in November.
The Government wants 100,000 firms to set net zero targets ahead of Cop26, where world leaders will hold 12 days of talks.
