TRANSITIONING TO NET ZERO - Webinar Series

These deep-dive and interactive sessions will focus on solutions for business and enabling practical action. Each session will feature guest presentations by sector and climate experts, as well as ‘peer-to-peer’ case studies from leading companies, and a Q&A Surgery segment whereby audience members can engage with speakers. For each sector we will identify key climate issues and opportunities towards net zero and explore:

  • How to align the business strategy to commitments and actions, including what a good net zero strategy should involve and look like, and what businesses should avoid;
  • The methods, tools, and resources available for businesses to take action and achieve net zero;
  • Responsibilities of various stakeholders including individuals within the company and within the supply chain, and how to engage them; and
  • How to communicate commitments and actions externally.

Past Webinars

London Climate Action Week – Business Transition to a Net Zero and Resilient World
1 July 2021, 10:30-12:00 BST

In June 2020, the COP26 High Level Climate Champions launched the ‘Race to Zero’, followed months later by the launch of its sibling campaign, the ‘Race to Resilience’. These two global campaigns are mobilising businesses, investors, cities, and civil society to take immediate action to achieve net zero emissions no later than 2050 (Race to Zero) and strengthen the resilience of 4 billion people in vulnerable communities by 2030 (Race to Resilience). This event during London Climate Action Week explored the climate mitigation and resilience agendas and the interlinkages between them. Government representatives, experts, and business leaders discussed their vision of a net zero, climate resilient world, and the actions they are taking to get there.

Understanding Risks to Build Climate-Resilience
8 July 2021 10:30 - 11:45 BST

This session focussed on the ‘Businesses and Economies’ dimension of resilience. The session examined some of the key risks for businesses in not taking action to enhance resilience; how to identify, measure, and monitor risks to inform business decision making; and the tools and resources available to support companies to manage and disclose risks.
