About the webinar
Hear about best practice from businesses that have started the process of understanding climate-related risks and opportunities and embedding their climate ambitions across their business operations.

This webinar will cover:   

  • Understanding climate-related risks and opportunities across your business activities.
  • How businesses are embedding this across their business strategy and implementing Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations.
  • Engaging key stakeholders on your climate action plans from leaders, employees, and supply chains.

Guest speakers include:  

  • Naomi Rigby, Non-Financial Reporting Specialist, Sustainability & Climate Change at PwC
  • Rhona Turnbull, Climate, Environment & Emerging Issues Lead Sustainable Banking at NatWest Group. 

Background
We now have less than ten years to tackle the climate emergency if we are to stand a good chance of delivering a planet that enables current and future generations to thrive. Public pressure is growing on leading governments and investors to start acting. Business leadership will be critical to drive the transformation required and it is integral that businesses understand climate-related risks and opportunities to deliver benefits for people and nature.

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to build back responsibly and make sure we are on track to deliver a just transition and build resilience to future shocks and accelerate action on climate change. The UK is hosting the postponed COP26 in November 2021 and we have a unique opportunity to demonstrate UK leadership on climate action. With mandatory reporting on climate-related risks and opportunities coming in for many businesses in 2021, there will be a need for businesses to demonstrate commitment and action to meeting international climate goals.
