About this event
The COP26 was a global reckoning on the climate crisis.
“World is on track for 2.4 degrees of warming despite COP26 pledges, analysis finds” CNN
“The world is on track for disastrous levels of global heating far in excess of the limits in the Paris climate agreement, despite a flurry of carbon-cutting pledges from governments at the UN Cop26 summit.” The Guardian
Countries and companies have committed to massive investments in new technologies, infrastructure and greenhouse gases pollution reduction:
Methane commitment to cut 30% by 2030 = 105 countries
Forestry protection = $8.7 trillion global assets
Clean technology investment (power, road transport, hydrogen, steel, agriculture)
What do they mean for you? How can your company profit by delivering climate change solutions? How can your company manage the unavoidable risks of climate disruption? What are the risks of delaying significant action?
In this webinar, we will discuss:

Examples of innovative technologies to tackle the climate crisis
Q&A on how you and your company profit from solutions and avoid risk
Presentation will be followed by breakout rooms for networking, conversation and holiday cheer.
