SSN Event: What's Your Strategy?

29 May 2019

10:30 AM

Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation

How to set targets, galvanise leadership and embed a credible blueprint to deliver on the Climate Change Plan

This SSN member event will bring together experiences of design, development and implementation of climate and sustainability strategies. We’re keen to explore how strategies can mobilise leadership and generate a clear sense of direction and commitment on climate action and delivery of the Climate Change Plan. We’ll assess their purpose to help underpin all activities, operations and decisions across a public sector organisation. We’ll consider how to avoid a well-designed plan being left ignored in a drawer. What’s the winning formula for effective strategies and management plans? Join us and find out!
