The City of Greater Bendigo and the Bendigo Manufacturing Group is holding a series of informative and interactive events on Friday May 25 at the Bendigo Town Hall to assist local businesses to understand the impact of the new carbon price and what they can do to minimise the impact on their business.
City of Greater Bendigo Economic Development Unit Manager Brian Gould said with the introduction of the new carbon price only weeks away, the May 25 sessions will provide an excellent opportunity for local businesses to find out more about the impact it will have.
“The range of sessions and workshops had been organised in response to business queries around the carbon price.
“The day will kick off with a special Carbon Price Business Briefing Breakfast featuring one of Australia’s leading sustainability practitioners Dan Atkins Managing Director of Shaper Group. Dan has more than 15 years experience advising organisations across Australia, Asia, Europe and the USA.
“His presentation will provide a detailed understanding of the forthcoming carbon price including how it is proposed to work, how it will impact on local businesses and what opportunities exist for local businesses,” said Mr Gould.
A program of free interactive workshops and one-on-one sessions will follow the breakfast briefing to assist businesses with their transition to a low carbon economy and improve their bottom line.
The workshops will be led by skilled practitioners in their field who will draw from their experience to provide examples such as how businesses have reduced their business operating costs, established more efficient energy usage and negotiated lower energy prices.
Bendigo Manufacturing Group Chair Mr Ken McCulloch said businesses of all sizes and from any sector are invited to attend.
“The program of events has been organised to enable businesses to participate in one or all of the activities and learn from skilled practitioners.
“I encourage all local businesses to attend these events so they can comprehend how the carbon price will work as well as gain practical insights into minimising its impact on the business,” said Mr McCulloch.
Bookings are essential for all sessions and can be made by phoning 1800 813 153. Cost to attend the breakfast is only $30 while there is no charge to attend the workshops.
