Environmental data can be a powerful tool, from helping to make the case for action and raise awareness, to tracking the difference action makes and communicating achievements. What you get out of your environmental data depends on what you put into it, and how well you understand it.

This webinar helps NPOs get more from their environmental data and reporting, so that it becomes more than a box-ticking exercise and can actually provide meaningful information which can be put to good use and adds value to what you do.

We provide practical examples, explain how to get more from the IG Tools, and address some of the questions we get asked a lot - what is a carbon footprint anyway? How bad is ten tonnes of carbon? How do we know how we are doing compared to our peers?

Structure of the session
