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 Nov 23, 2020 02:42 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.

Join us for this webinar on Wednesday 18 November, 2:30pm – 4:00pm GMT.

This webinar will be delivered as part of the Race to Zero Dialogues taking place from 9 to 19 November 2020. It is one of several dialogues that focus on the cross-cutting theme of resilience. The Dialogues are being run as part of Race to Zero, a campaign driving global commitments and ambition to limit warming globally to 1.5C. This webinar will examine how we transform infrastructure investments globally to deliver a resilient and net zero world. This dialogue will explore 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.
