2020 was due to be a landmark year for those pushing for a net-zero future, with world leaders being tasked update and upgrade their pledges on tackling climate change and emissions targets through to 2030. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that COP26 has been postponed until 2021, but it’s imperative to action and momentum continues to ensure we put business on a net-zero footing

Delivering Net Zero Virtual Week will provide practical ideas and strategies on how business can put a Net-Zero ambition at the heart of their recovery plan.

This project aims to bring together 3,000+ CEOs, CPOs, CSOs and heads of Sustainability, Energy and Investors to share their strategies on how they are working now to ensure we continue momentum ahead of next year’s COP26 meeting. It will deliver the practical strategies on how to execute Science-Based Targets to transform the entire organisation in-line with their vision for decarbonisation and procure investments to accelerate the process of achieving a Net Zero Future.
