Case Study

FREE for BIMA members

You want to get serious – and strategic – about lowering your carbon footprint. But how do you do it?

To help, the BIMA Sustainability Council and MSQ, a global, carbon negative digital marketing group, have developed a six week online course delivered via FutureLearn that will guide you through the terminology, measurement techniques and reduction strategies for your company’s carbon footprint.

Then, with strategies in place, you’ll learn how to track reductions and report on progress to show your clients you’re committed to green initiatives.
