Event: The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group webinar: Delivering a resilient, net zero economy: Transforming infrastructure investments to deliver a resilient and net zero world, 18 November 2020

last modified Feb 11, 2021 01:24 PM
This is the second webinar in the Delivering a resilient, net zero economy series run by The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group (CLG). The series aims to provide a call to action and support enhanced collaboration and action between policymakers and business leaders that feeds into business climate leadership, policy, the green recovery and the UK Government’s COP26 campaign.

This webinar took place on Wednesday 18 November, 2:30pm – 4:00pm GMT.

This webinar was delivered as part of the Race to Zero Dialogues that took place from 9 to 19 November 2020. It was one of several dialogues that focussed on the cross-cutting theme of resilience. The Dialogues were ran as part of Race to Zero, a campaign driving global commitments and ambition to limit warming globally to 1.5C. This webinar examined how we can transform infrastructure investments globally to deliver a resilient and net zero world. The dialogue explored the role of policy, approaches and investments required globally to support and build resilient supply chains, infrastructure and a thriving natural environment through place-based examples from the UK and other countries.

This webinar follows CISL’s Future we Want Leadership Discussions, which bring together leading thinkers from business, finance, government and academia, to shine a light on the choices that need to be made, both now and in the long term for a net zero, sustainable future.
