The E in ESG – Why the Environment matters

23 Sep, 11-12:15pm

The environmental aspect of ESG considers how a company performs as a steward of the physical environment – including how energy is consumed, pollution emitted and waste produced.

The Government set the target for the UK to reach net zero by 2050. Many businesses have set their own targets of reaching net zero by 2030.

This webinar will share why businesses need to be thinking about their environmental credentials, the role they can play and why the time is now.
