Climate Change & Nature

Climate Change & Nature - facilitated by Ross Primmer from the Supply Chain Sustainability School
This session looks at one of the major global crises being caused by climate change – the loss of biodiversity.
We will explain the importance of biodiversity: for pollination, ecosystems, animal and human wellbeing, for life! The session will include the reasons for the loss of biodiversity and how climate change is changing the natural world around us at an unprecedented rate.
Importantly, we will look at actions being taken to reverse the decline and how we can support these at individual and organisation level through the choices we make - for example in the materials we use in construction and infrastructure projects, or by “designing-in” positive outcomes for biodiversity and the natural habitat when planning projects.
The concept of Biodiversity Net Gain will be introduced along with how SSEN are using the approach to improve the natural habitat and landscapes around their substations and other assets.
This session forms part of the Climate Academy, a series of six online learning sessions available to charities, organisations, and businesses (including our existing and potential supply chain partners) across SSEN licence areas. The Climate Academy supports SSEN’s commitment to assisting other organisations on their transition to net zero.To book your place at this session please use the link below
