Climate Change and the Transition to a Low Carbon Economy

The Net Impact club’s conference for 2018 will focus on the wide-ranging effects of global climate change, how policy is evolving to address the threats and opportunities we face, and how different areas of business are dealing with the challenges.

A “Low Carbon Economy” is about much more than you might think. Virtually all areas of business can play a role in reducing our overall carbon output and the club’s leadership are excited to bring together panels of experts to discuss what is being done and what opportunities we have yet to take advantage of.

Attend the conference and hear from industry experts on:
– The science of climate change, how it affects our lives and business in general
– How policy is evolving to address the new issues we face as a society and how businesses of all kinds are impacted
– Finance and investment tools and trends aimed to generate economic, environmental and social returns
– What CPG companies are doing with regard to product design, packaging, supply chain and more
– The apparel industry’s role and solutions to production, consumption, and textile waste
– Real Estate: Sustainability in the Built World
– Clean energy projects, innovations and scalability
