Successfully implementing net zero: a how-to guide for UK companies

May 14, 2020

11:00 am

- 12:00 pm

There are ever-growing pressures facing organisations to respond to the climate emergency and many are making commitments to achieve net zero emissions, but what does this look like in reality and what, specifically, does your business need to consider?


Ricardo’s carbon management experts are delivering change for clients across many sectors of the economy. We are working with executive boards to develop their own net zero strategies, compiling the business case for carbon mitigation measures and implementing solutions that ultimately contribute to the UK’s net zero targets. These projects are taking advantage of the opportunities presented by the net zero agenda and allowing organisations to demonstrate their contribution to addressing the climate emergency.


About this webinar

In this third of our three free webinars, our experts will look at some of the challenges in delivering a 30-year strategy for net zero against a backdrop of 1-5 year investment cycles, a changing governance structure and the steps you may need to take to gather and fully communicate the metrics of success to support the ongoing implementation of your net zero strategy.


Who should attend?

  • Sustainability and environmental managers.
  • Finance directors.
  • Managing directors.
  • Chief executive officers.
