18 episodes

This is the behind-the-scenes audio diary of our journey to take our business to better than net zero carbon emissions.

Who are we?
The business is eCommerce MasterPlan - we run podcasts (eCommerce MasterPlan and Keep Optimising) and virtual summits.
The host is Chloe Thomas, founder of eCommerce MasterPlan and eCommerce Marketing specialist.

This show is a little rougher around the edges than our main shows!

We will be sharing how we make eCommerce MasterPlan a NetZero business, and then take it beyond net zero.

The aim is to two-fold:
- to inspire others to do the same
- to make it easier for others to get started

Episodes will (probably!) include:
- status updates
- book & other learning things reviews
- rundowns of specific areas where we've done the research and made the changes (eg electric cars, software suppliers, finance etc etc)
