Webinar (free)

The business and regulatory landscape is rapidly changing in response to climate change. Delivering the UK’s binding commitment to net zero emissions by 2050 requires far-reaching changes in how we live, consume, make things and do business.

The road to Net Zero presents a wide range of challenges and opportunities for the food and drink industry, from farmers, producers, manufacturers and their supply chains through to retailers and consumers. Carbon reduction and energy efficiency are increasingly important issues for the sector.

In this webinar held by FDF, we will cover:

  • why net zero and energy efficiency is an opportunity for food and drink manufacturers
  • examples of the types of measures, technologies and projects being implemented
  • challenges to energy efficient projects
  • funding models and requirements for funders – what ‘fundable’ looks like
  • where to start
  • Q&A
