2022 Transition Trends: Investing and Accelerating to Net Zero

Tuesday, June 28, 2022

10:00 – 11:00 am EST


The World is continuing to work towards the transition to carbon net zero, however, according to a recent Zeronomics report from Standard Chartered, 55% of business leaders still believe that the transition to net zero is not fast enough and we are in danger of missing the goals outlined in the Paris Agreement.

ESG and sustainability is staying at the forefront of business, with the majority of business pledging an ambitious target in the race to net zero, but are companies on track? Is there enough investment in key areas, is it fully supported by governments, industry and supply chains and what impact have these targets had on business as well as the consumer?

As the Business Community comes away from Davos with an even more acute focus on speeding up the scaling of climate solutions, BAB invites you to join us for a unique opportunity to hear from global leaders, from a cross-section of industries, all with a common goal of accelerating the commitment to net zero and supporting efforts to achieve this.

Investment – Financial institutions can connect capital to markets which are most vulnerable to climate change. Standard Chartered will share the importance of investment.  Is it going where it matters most and how investors work on catalysing finance and partnerships to scale impact, capital and climate solutions where they are needed the most.

Infrastructure and technology – National Grid have emphasised the significance of Federal support for infrastructure to mitigate the impacts of climate change and the stress importance of investing in technology to optimize and increase grid utilization to accommodate all the distributed resources.

‘Grain to glass’ sustainability – Diageo is committed to help build a more sustainable world by working to tackle climate change, water stress and biodiversity loss. Diageo’s priorities include using less water to produce its products and replenish water stressed areas, achieve net zero carbon across operations, and reduce waste. But how do we engage consumers and suppliers around the world to join us on this journey?
