An Audience with Tom Thackray, Programme Director - Decarbonisation

Shortly after world leaders have gathered in Glasgow for the highly anticipated COP26 fortnight, the CBI, in partnership with HSBC, will do a deep dive into what the outcomes mean for business on a practical level, and what opportunities exist for business in the transition to a low carbon economy.

Join the CBI’s Programme Director for Decarbonisation, Tom Thackray and HSBC’s UK Sector Head for Sustainability, Rob King to learn how your business can manage the transition, and hear case studies of how other businesses are tackling these challenges. Whether you are looking to start your net zero journey, or have a fully integrated plan to become more sustainable, this event will be a chance to gain insights from your peers.

During the session, we will also seek your input on how the policy environment can evolve to encourage higher levels of business investment in the critical years ahead. Business collaboration with government is essential to provide the scope of innovation and investment needed to achieve net zero.

By attending this event, you will:

  • Understand where and how business can start or develop their journeys towards achieving net zero, including practical signposts and pathways
  • Learn from real-life business case studies
  • Find out how best to engage with supply chains to ensure a holistic approach
  • Gain an insight into the cost of transitioning and the routes to green finance
  • Learn how to tackle any existing or potential skills gap, which may stall businesses achieving their net zero goals
  • Understand the latest policy developments that will impact businesses and levelling up in the North.

You will particularly benefit from this event if you are a:

  • Business Leader
  • MD / CEO / COO
  • Strategy VP / Director
  • Chief Sustainability Officer or similar
  • Finance Director
  • Government Affairs/Corporate Affairs Director
