The climate clock is ticking louder than ever. History will judge how businesses rose to the complex, interconnected challenges we’re facing today and will differentiate – brutally – between those that delivered significant change, and those that just talked a good story. Join us for a breakfast gathering to discuss the business case for net zero and how you can gain a competitive advantage through developing sustainable strategies that are robust and authentic.
We’ll demonstrate how timely and effective climate action can drive improved operational efficiency, customer loyalty, attraction of talent, capital market attractiveness, and resilience. It has also been shown to enhance shareholder value, as investors and industry leaders seek out forward-thinking companies.
Climate change is the pivotal business challenge of our time. We also know that, as business leaders, we have a responsibility to take action. The challenge is how to do it. So just where do businesses start their net zero journey?
Our event will be hosted by Mark Woodward, Co Founder & CEO of Flotilla, a leading carbon accounting and net zero delivery partner; Helen Neave, Founding Director of Make it Wild, who offer carbon offsetting and nature related solutions; and joined by guest speaker Helen Saunders, Head of People & ESG Lead at Clarion Solicitors.
This session is ideal for business leaders who are responsible for either leading, implementing or delivering a net zero strategy as well as sustainability and ESG professionals within business.
