Climate Action- Strategies to Decarbonise your Business

Priority One in collaboration with Tadpole

Date: Tuesday, 26th March 2024
Time: 9:30am - 11:30am
Venue: The Atrium Cafe, 252 Otumoetai Road, Tauranga

Led by sustainable transformation specialist’s Tadpole, discover the latest strategies for tackling climate change at our upcoming climate action workshop. Join us as we delve into the causes and impacts of climate change and explore global, national, and local initiatives aimed at combating it. Learn about the decarbonisation initiatives for transportation, manufacturing, refrigeration, packaging, waste, and resources, and arm yourself with practical actions to explore and learn how to develop your own climate action programme.


Building on the successful decarbonisation workshops last year, Priority One is delighted to be hosting a two-hour interactive workshop on Climate Change and Climate Action, this March.

Held at The Atrium Café & Conference Centre, the workshop aims to grow your knowledge of climate change, and what causes it, so you can build strategies to decarbonise your business and supply chain. It will explore the initiatives being taken globally, nationally, and locally here in the Western Bay of Plenty and will arm you with practical actions to explore.

The dreadful wet summer of 2022/23 and the South Island forest fires this year are a stark reminder that climate change is upon us. Now more than ever, we need to act.  Building strategies to decarbonise is one part of the picture. Building resilience in your business to survive and thrive in a changing climate is another. Join sustainable transformation specialists Tadpole, and other like-minded business owners and employees for what promises to be an enlightening and engaging couple of hours.
