Transform: Energy & Carbon · 28 - 29th September
Businesses are living through a period of unprecedented change. Driven by the climate emergency and incoming regulation, plus shareholder, employee and consumer pressure - every business is being challenged with how to become a low-carbon enterprise.
Reuters Events’ Transform: Energy and Carbon will bring together leading companies across multiple industries to address the challenge; how companies can reduce carbon emissions and develop regenerative strategies, whilst continuing to grow, increase the bottom-line, and deliver the products and services that make the brands what they are.
The 2-day live virtual event, followed by virtual VIP working groups, will unite CEOs, CPOs, CSOs and heads of Sustainability, Energy and Sourcing share strategies on how they are operating, designing, manufacturing and supplying a Net-Positive business. It will deliver the practical strategies on how to execute Science-Based Targets to transform the entire organisation in-line with their vision for decarbonisation.
