Net Zero – helping you measure your impact!

The world’s attention is on the environment. No business can risk being behind the curve. Blue Patch provide members with expert guidance and support to bring their brand into alignment with Net Zero. Blue Patch members can sign up for our webinar on how to measure your carbon footprint and reduce your emissions – we make it easy.

Walking the walk ourselves – Blue Patch’s environmental policy.

Well done Blue Patch for being on the leading edge of the curve and thanks for promoting Laura’s Loom. I have to say of all the groups I’ve joined (and left) over the years, the only group that I feel really cares about my business is Blue Patch. You’re always finding ways to help promote your members in a way that I’ve never experienced with any other marketing group. It makes being a member more than worthwhile, so thanks for that too.
