Climate action and the SDGs: What does a ‘just transition’ mean in practice?

Clock icon 12:00 - 13:00
Climate change already disproportionately affects the most vulnerable populations and communities. The SDGs link many of these challenges together and provide a holistic framework for business. But these all-encompassing and complex goals can be overwhelming and difficult to translate into a joined up approach on the ground. 
In this session, we will ask our panel:
·       To discuss how leading brands can align SDGs work to deliver on a more just decarbonisation transition
·       Debate the role of human rights due diligence for engaging stakeholders 
·       Attempt to define a ‘just transition’ and assess what this looks like in practice.
·       Assess how to align company approaches to ensure the SDGs are kept at the heart of climate strategy.
