Welcome to our May newsletter, after an unusually warm Autumn it appears Winter has now arrived. Pleasant as the extended Summer has been there is also room for concern as temperature records are broken (repeatedly) around the world. We will look at some of the implications of this trend in future newsletters but in this edition we start off with a look at what New Zealand has (or hasn't done) to mitigate climate change;
- The ETS in a nutshell - Ever wondered exactly what an Emissions Trading Scheme is and how it might affect your business? In this item Ben gives you the quick guide to the ETS with a key message. We are facing the biggest challenge we have ever had, don't be overwhelmed by it. Individual contributions will make the difference.
- Following the same theme we are repeating our Circular Economy Workshops - The Auckland workshop was such a success that we have decided to roll them out in Tauranga and Wellington.
- Safe food exporting - Food regulations are constantly evolving in New Zealand, and in the countries we export to. It can be hard to keep up, even for an experienced exporter so register now for upcoming seminars.
- A beginner's guide to successfully securing funding - We are often approached to assist businesses with obtaining funding. We've put together a simple guide to securing funding, so you can give yourself a head start to putting together a successful proposal.
We hope you enjoy the read and we welcome any feedback. Enjoy the winter, it's meant to be cold!
