Sustainability Voices: Road to Net Zero
There has been a fundamental shift in business attitudes towards sustainability. No longer is it seen as separate to growing a business, but instead an instrumental component to achieving a competitive edge. Hear from experts and customers as they discuss the opportunities and challenges facing you and your organisation’s journey to net zero.
Lindsay Hooper, Executive Director at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, details the shifting corporate attitudes towards building sustainable practices into future-ready business models. Lindsay points out the most common challenges and provides practical steps businesses should take on their road to net zero.
BlackRock’s Alexis Rosenblum, Chief Corporate Sustainability Officer, discusses the challenges with new Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data and how important clear and consistent reporting is in the investment process. She also offers guidance for businesses on their own sustainability journey.
