NetZero roundtable discussion event

NetZero roundtable discussion event

Addressing the NetZero Challenge requires urgent action from business and Government leaders alike in order to limit global warming.

New sustainable and circular technologies which will be the drivers of clean growth are growing in influence; with national governments, multinational companies, the EU, the UN and the WEF embracing circular economic principles to help realise local, national and global sustainable development goals.

This roundtable discussion will bring together a select group of start-up founders, scale-up business leaders and academic experts to discuss the opportunities and challenges that NetZero presents. We invite applications from businesses and researchers developing solutions in this area to observe the debate.

This event will be MC’d by Lucy Siegle (see below) – a journalist and writer on environmental issues.
