West of England Sustainable Technologies Scale-Up Programme – Responding to the Climate Emergency

Breakfast Networking Event: Responding to the Climate Emergency

Following the highly-anticipated United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, join us for a discussion on how organisations can respond to the climate emergency and do their bit towards the net-zero target.

The lead talk will be from a member of the University of Bath’s Climate Action Team – a selected group of people dedicated to the University’s transformational climate action work, responsible for finding more ways to lower its carbon impact and embed sustainability in its future.

A panel of sustainability and climate-conscious businesses will discuss what tools are emerging to help SMEs develop their plans and measure their progress in responding to the climate emergency.
