Catch-up with our online Net zero carbon offsetting and nature-based solutions sharing & learning webinar and hear from industry experts and innovators working in this space.

In this session, you’ll find out why investment in nature is beneficial to people’s health and wellbeing and the links between factors such as pollution and poor air quality and an increase in health inequalities in underserviced areas. It will also explore the benefits that nature can have such as boosting local economies and how it can play a key role in achieving net zero targets.

Discover more about offsetting and removal, what it is, how to ensure your business invests in credible schemes and why this can support your carbon reduction plans.

Hear the Yorkshire Ambulance Service discuss its recently completed project to improve biodiversity and support carbon offsetting by planting over 2,000 trees in a memorial forest, as well as innovators working in this space including Patients Know Best and industry experts Carma and Earthly.

This session is suitable for those working in trusts, Integrated Care Boards, NHS Providers, NHS suppliers and innovators.
