The imperative to transition to a low carbon economy whilst promoting growth and economic recovery has never been stronger.

Webinar: Nature on the Board Agenda - Practical actions for boards

Organised by Deloitte
Thursday, June 4 | 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM BST (webinar)
Click here to register

With increasing recognition of the complex, interdependent nature between business and nature – economy and ecology – governments and standard setters around the world are developing a clearer point of view about this challenge, as it becomes more urgent to take action on ecosystem disruption and reductions in global biomass.

We will be joined by Mardi McBrien, Managing Director of the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, Chair of the independent global review on the economics of biodiversity, and Sir Roger Gifford, Chair of the Green Finance Institute, and to discuss why ‘nature’ should feature on the board agenda and the practical actions this presents for boards and executive teams. We will also explore the role of finance in moving to a climate resilient economy, whilst enhancing nature considerations into the financial system.

This event will interrogate how to ensure that the recovery from Covid-19 has the environment and social justice at its heart. The speakers will be Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and chair of the Elders, and Lord Nicholas Stern, chair of the Grantham Research Institute at the London School of Economics.There is a great deal of rhetorical support for the concept of ‘building back better’, but how can we ensure that we really do get the right sort of recovery this time?

Thursday, June 18 | 2:00 PM BST (webinar)
Click here to register

Making a commitment to the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) and establishing a science-based target (SBT) is an essential part of every organisation’s climate action toolbox. As with any emissions reduction targets, achieving it will be dependent on a wide variety of possible business initiatives, the changing political and social landscape, and a certain amount of financial investment.

During this webinar we will discuss how to set an SBT including the tools to help you do it, and demonstrate how to map, track and realise emissions reductions so you can be confident of the targets set and how to reach them.

The expert speakers for the session are:

• Laurie Edwards: Senior Consultant, EcoAct
• Lea Fink: Regional Lead, Commit to Action, CDP Europe
