I mentioned a few free tools and resources that are available for businesses to start engaging with the low carbon economy and begin differentiating themselves from their competitors and saving some money off their bottom line.
These are available at:-
- Carbon literacy training -www.clearaboutcarbon.com/elearning
- Show me the carbon tool -www.clearaboutcarbon.com/showmethecarbon
- Carbon jargon buster-www.clearaboutcarbon.com/resources/jargon-buster
- Business carbon calculator-www.superfastcornwall.org/carbon-calculator/carbon-calculator-for-businesses.html
I also mentioned a series of free 90 minute master classes that we’re organising around the County beginning in mid-June.
We’re just finalising the details and I will forward to you the promotional information in a couple of weeks, but a firm date for diaries is Friday 15 June, starting from 8:00am at the Pool Innovation Centre. As an added incentive we’ll be providing a breakfast bap and refreshments for all delegates and will finish promptly at 10:00am.
We hope we’ll be joined by some businesses from Falmouth (or perhaps we could seek to deliver one – at no cost - in your neck of the woods later in the year?).
Food for thought?
Anyway, many thanks for the chance to highlight the carbon train coming down the track…

There is a lot of debate – not just in the press – about ethics and morality in business. Most of the debate centres on the mega businesses in banking, retail, service provision – and, of course, big media itself. That is an important debate but I’m more interested in smaller businesses, the type that we have most of in this country, and the learning they can offer to bigger business.
For smaller businesses – and I include those that employ tens of people as well as one-man bands – the question is not how to maximise huge profits or to avoid tax. For a large proportion it is about making any sort of profit and keeping up with the administration of their tax affairs. Small business has always been precarious. It is even more so now. It is, for so many, a survival game.
