How to use climate science to drive board-level action on GHGs

Clock icon 09:00 - 10:00
Companies are under ever increasing pressure to go further and faster on climate action. Investors, consumers, activists, even school children around the world are holding business to account and demanding action. 

This opening panel will discuss the necessary changes and practical steps for business to act on climate targets. We’ll look at what’s required to really engage board-level executives, as well as discussing the practicalities of these targets and what they will mean for business operations. 
  • The facts and figures on climate change that board-level executives will respond to: Are attitudes to radical action changing fast enough?
  • The scientists say we’ve got a decade to cut GHGs dramatically: How should business targets reflect this?
  • Investors may hold the key to business action: How can they become a catalyst rather than a barrier 
  • How the company can use positive climate impact work to drive cultural change and innovation
