GOLD STANDARD CLIMATE WEEK NYC + NET ZERO FESTIVAL EVENT
BEYOND NET ZERO: CREDIBLE, AMBITIOUS CLIMATE STRATEGIES
Wednesday, 22 September 2021
11:00 – 12:30 EDT / 17:00 – 18:30 CEST
Net Zero commitments are soaring, but many are ‘greenwishing’, lacking concrete plans or involve postponing short term climate action. This event will focus on how companies can set ambitious climate strategies and highlight concrete solutions they can take today to reduce emissions within and beyond their corporate boundaries — and the fuzzy space in between. We will discuss how to take action to address Scope 3 emissions and take a deep dive into the relationship between Scope 3 and carbon markets and how they can work together for more ambitious climate action. We’ll also look at how to navigate the complexity of emerging claims and practices to recognise climate leadership.
