In July 2019 Manchester declared a climate emergency. As the 14th most sustainable city in the world, Manchester is aiming for carbon neutrality by 2038. This is going to mean we need to find an additional 45MW by 2024, and we’ll need to reduce emissions by 97.3% before 2038.
In this session we are going to explore the role that the region’s tech companies could play to help realise this ambition and what practice and policies can we adopt to make sure we are leading the charge.
Slalom will set the scene for the discussion and their Environmental, Social & Governance team will share insights into how different businesses are taking the necessary steps to reduce the impact on the environment, remove inequalities in the workplace, and connect with a new conscious consumer.
We will then break out into discussion groups to talk about what we can do as business leaders to make a meaningful impact on our communities through our everyday business activities.
