What’s this webinar about?
The road to net zero presents numerous challenges and will require collaboration between policy owners, business leaders, SMEs, societal stakeholders and those that can mobilize finance to accelerate the transition.
As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week, this general introductory webinar explores the legislative drivers that are framing the UK Government’s response to net zero and how organizations can best adapt, both strategically and operationally. We ask what tools and techniques will help, and how greener investment (in projects and people) can be prioritized.
Presentations are followed by a round table discussion and Q&A.
This session is relevant to all sectors, but especially decision-makers in:
- The built environment
What will participants gain?
- First-hand insights into the UK Government’s thinking in relation to achieving net zero
- Help with developing net zero strategies
- New contacts and leads on how to finance and accelerate the transition
- The opportunity to have your questions answered by our experts
- A post-event copy of all presentations and a recording of the webinar
