Last month, the European Innovation Council (EIC) kicked off the Greenhouse Gas Programme (GHG). Together with Europe’s largest community of innovators and researchers, we are going to solidify the phrase “climate action is a business case” and aim to lower the carbon footprint of Europe’s most innovative startups and scaleups. On 2 July 2021, from 09.30-12.00 (CEST), we will host an introductory webinar, covering the most important aspects of the EIC GHG programme.
Applications are open until 2 July 2021 (first come, first served)
The EIC GHG programme offers EIC beneficiaries the chance to assess, track and reduce their carbon footprint. The programme entails several different aspects, including co-creation activities with partners & peers, a dedicated GHG tool to help you to quantify and measure your carbon footprint and monthly webinars and other specific resources to further support you with dedicated mitigation measures.
This introductory GHG webinar, taking place on 2 July 2021 from 09.30-12.00 (CEST), will help you get acquainted with the different services offered through the programme and really get you started with your personal low carbon strategy.
