The West of England Combined Authority and the region’s councils have each declared a Climate Emergency and committed to achieve net zero by 2030. However to do so will require an unprecedented rate and scale of change. It requires applying technologies and techniques and establishing and maintaining levels of public and business engagement which are currently the exception rather than the norm.
As part of this activity, YTKO, which is committed to providing free, impactful, sustainability support to businesses and the self-employed across the West of England has created the Sustainable Impact Champion Scheme, supported by the West of England Combined Authority. This offers support for businesses, putting the focus on individuals and aiming to change behaviour to create environmental benefits within their company.

The MMC training is being delivered as part of the Workforce for the Future programme, on behalf of the West of England Combined Authority. It is part-funded by the European Social Fund.
