The purpose of this session is to educate businesses on the basics of carbon and other greenhouse gases and provide high-level information on the importance of moving towards a decarbonised visitor economy.





Learn from industry experts about how to reduce waste within your business. Reducing waste conserves resources, cuts costs and also supports corporate social responsibility, circular economy and the Queenstown Lakes District's goal to become a zero waste district.
