Net Zero Carbon Targets: Delivering On The CEO’s Pledge

An increasing number of CEOs are pledging to achieve net zero carbon emissions. This trend is set to continue as investor, customer, employee and regulatory pressure to act on climate change ramps up. Whilst the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) provides firms with a scientific methodology to set net zero targets, executives are still struggling along the entire process, from setting targets to defining a strategy and finally operationalizing ESG and sustainability. Attendees at this event will learn critical success factors for delivering on net zero commitments and how to make real progress advancing your strategy.
