The road to zero carbon: your community pub addressing climate change

The road to zero carbon: your community pub addressing climate change

Old Forge Pub
Friday 9 December 2022 - 10:00 to 11:30


Plunkett Foundation

Are you involved in setting up a community owned pub in Scotland and want to embed good green practices from the very start? Or is your pub already trading and you are looking at ways to transition to net zero whilst reducing your energy costs and addressing the needs of your community?

Join us for this free webinar to hear from experts Joan Lawrie, Project Manager at North Highlands and Islands Climate Hub, which supports community led climate action throughout the region, and Development Manager at Thurso Community Development Trust, as well as Grant Peisley, Plunkett Adviser, former board member of Menter Ty’n Llan Community Pub in North Wales, and director of DEG, a social enterprise supporting communities to improve their natural environment and transition to carbon zero.

Joan and Grant will help you to reflect on your current carbon uses and offer advice on implementing practical net zero and environmental policies to reduce your energy use, fuel costs and dependence on unsustainable fuels.

The session will also include time to ask our experts questions. It has been funded by the Scottish Rural Network whose funding is also enabling Plunkett to offer community pub groups across Scotland free business support, advice and networking opportunities.

The project is being delivered in collaboration with Community Shares Scotland and Co-operative Development Scotland.
