On the 12th of October, Merchant Land were delighted to be invited and be part of the panel at the ‘Your Business Journey to Net Zero’ virtual event hosted by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The event was designed to help small businesses who want to play their part in climate change, but don’t know where to start. The expert panel was chaired by Mark Jenkinson (LCCI) and consisted of Duncan Boak (University of East London), Joe Gallagher (Advanced Business Equipment) and Katherine McCullough (Merchant Land). The panel discussion was centred around suggesting practical solutions to help achieve low carbon goals and tips for how businesses can start making the journey towards net zero.

At Merchant Land, we have recently published our ‘Interim Statement of Sustainable Practices’ which sets out our pathway to targeting net zero which will be expanded upon in our full sustainability policy which we will launch early next year.
We are initiating a planning phase to establish a deliverable but aspirational plan to eventually become a Net Zero Carbon Company. The careful consideration of appropriate target deadlines and pathways will form a critical part of this planning phase.
