Climate Strategy


Towards Net Zero: Climate Strategy & Decarbonisation

Understanding and addressing how Climate Change is directly impacting your business is now a key strategic issue.

Not only is Climate Change of critical concern for organisations, especially those involved in energy and resource intensive sectors, but having a Climate Change Strategy is now a competitive issue that all businesses must address.

In the world of increasing emissions and climate change, decarbonisation is a key term used to describe the phasing out of carbon dioxide emissions from the use of fossil fuels. It is a critical aspect of managing the global greenhouse gas problem.

In Toward Net Zero: Climate Strategy and Decarbonisation, we will help participants to understand how to measure and report carbon emissions and how to assess climate risk and opportunity in their organisations.

Over the programme, we will share examples of best practise and recommended approaches to setting targets and decarbonisation pathways towards Net Zero and explain other science-based targets.
