About the webinar series
The global climate crisis we are facing is impacting society, business and our environment. It is widely accepted that there needs to be radical change to the way we do business with an immediate focus on the next decade. We need to put in place more sustainable systems, that will allow us to meet the climate change targets set by the Paris Accord.
Across the globe, businesses, both small and large, are making changes to the way they function to reduce their carbon impact and operate in a manner that will allow them to remain investible.
Environmental Social Governance (ESG) reporting is driving significant changes in business behaviours and operations and many businesses are doing this to great effect, by developing much more resilient business models. But are they doing enough? And how are companies moving beyond grand ambitions to making the changes that are required?
With Glasgow hosting COP26 in November there is a focus on how businesses will respond. Over this series of six webinars, we will hear from a range of companies, large and small, global and local who are responding to these challenges.
