West Midlands Member Discussion on  a Green Recovery and progress to Net-Zero emissions 

Your monthly opportunity to join other senior executives to discuss and shape the CBI narrative on the issues that most matter to you. Exchange thoughts and ideas in a Chatham House setting chaired by Richard Butler, Director of West Midlands, CBI.

This week’s call will be a discussion on  a green recovery from the pandemic, how this can deliver progress to the UK’s net-zero emissions target and the implications this will have on business and local economies.

We will hear about the developments following the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, and what we can expect from policy makers between now, and the UK’s hosting of the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in November next year.

We will also have a member case study from Severn Trent PLC. Howard Perry, Energy Manager at Severn Trent, will share their challenges and insights into their hugely ambitious journey to achieve net-zero by 2030 as well as sourcing 100% of their energy from renewables and switching to electric vehicles.

These Webex meetings are an opportunity for members to share their experiences, gain different perspectives on similar challenges and take away some key insights on the current economic situation. The CBI will use this insight to inform our conversations with government and ensure the voice of business is heard.

You’ll particularly benefit from this event if you are:

CEOs / COOs / Managing Directors

Government Affairs / Corporate Affairs Directors / Heads of

Public Affairs Directors / Heads of

Strategy VPs / Directors

Finance Directors

We want to hear how your business has been affected, what you are doing differently, and what your business needs are to survive and thrive.

Webex dial-in details will be sent in the joining instructions a few days before the event once your place has been confirmed.
