How can we drive businesses to deliver on net zero? (Policy@Manchester)

Nearly a fifth of the UK’s carbon emissions are generated by businesses. With global emissions expected to be just 5.5% lower than in 2019, urgent action is required across all sectors to achieve net zero goals. But how can we push businesses to sustainability when their bottom line is at stake?

What policy changes are needed to support the business community’s transition to net zero? Are UK policymakers key to driving this? And is it possible to incentivise transformation with a win/win scenario, where adaption can equate to productivity and profitability?

Join Policy@Manchester on 3 February to hear Professor Jonatan Pinkse discuss what could be achieved through a mix of legislation, incentives, and business modelling support. His presentation will be followed by a Q&A.

When: 11.30am, Wednesday 3rd Feburary
Where: Online
