Sustainability. Beyond the Rhetoric Environment

Oct 14, 2020

VENUE: Webinar

TIME: 11.00-12.00

Business in the Community Ireland

A series of one hour high level sessions featuring international speakers on how we will drive change on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues as we build a new economy post-pandemic.

Our first webinar will focus on Environment. Despite the vast number of damning scientific reports, international treaties and media headlines, the climate and biodiversity crises continue to persist. Minister for Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport, Eamon Ryan TD will join us to launch a ground-breaking new report, ‘Progressing Towards Science Based Targets’, which charts a pathway for Irish business to address climate change. During this session you will hear from CEOs and leaders discussing practical actions and solutions. This event will be by invitation only but a recording will be available publicly afterwards.

Speakers:

  • Matt Kennedy, Associate Director, (Carbon and Climate) at Arup
  • Fiona Ball, Director, Bigger Picture, Sky
  • Sarah Webster, Director of Sustainable Business, Britvic
  • Thibault Tribolet, Sustainability Consultant, Quantis
