Green, eco, sustainable... it's so confusing!
In the past few years, the world observed an enormous boom on net zero emissions targets set by governments and the private sector. Major companies around the world published detailed strategies on minimising their impact on the environment and engaged in voluntary public reporting of their greenhouse gas emissions.
Those who champion the change - lead the industry. Those who choose to stay behind - experience the scrutiny of media, investors, suppliers, clients, and broader public.
Nowadays, every working professional should have a basic understanding of the greenhouse gas emissions and know the fundamental concepts of climate action.
So, if you have you ever wondered:
- What are the greenhouse gas emissions?
- What does it mean to have net zero targets?
- How to approach climate action from the business perspective?
...And what's this fuss all about? This event is for you!
The event will begin with a panel session featuring three experts: Dorota Bacal, Philip Link and George Guse who will kick-off the discussion.
The panel will be followed by Q&A time - the main part of the event, when all participants will have a chance to ask questions.
