Carbon neutral: what does it mean for businesses, the planet, and society, and how can we achieve it?

We are at a crucial tipping point in the history of humanity. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said: “We will be destroyed by climate change, not the planet. This will be for us a clear indication that we absolutely need to change course.”

According to the latest annual UN’s Emissions Gap report, we need to reduce carbon emissions by 7% a year over the next decade to stand any hope of staying within the 1.5oC target set out in the Paris Agreement, yet in 2018 emissions reached a new high of 55.3 gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent.

Scientists worldwide agree that 2020 is a critical year for action, and we have already seen announcements from organisations such as Microsoft stating bold new carbon-reduction goals aiming for zero, or even beyond. But what does “carbon neutral” really mean for different types of businesses, and how do we go about getting there? What does it mean for people, both inside our organisations and in our wider community of consumers, and throughout every level of our supply chains?

Join us for an interactive and informative session with expert panelists and speakers representing the corporate, NPO, and government sectors to deepen your understanding and discuss best practices for moving us all towards a carbon neutral future.
