Building the network… supporting environment and sustainability professionals as critical ‘change agents’ for a low carbon climate resilient economy

How do we engender, embed and escalate climate action? The opportunities are there, and examples of pioneering practice are blazing an exciting trail. However, understanding the changing landscape of energy and climate change practice can often be challenging. So let’s learn from each other to help us all mobilise action for low carbon transitions and more climate resilient organisations.

This morning session – devised and delivered by IEMA’s Climate Change and Energy Network – will explore a range of common challenges, work themes and opportunities, from company reporting to climate change adaptation. The keynote presentation, panel discussion and roundtable sessions will enthuse you to explore your own approaches, and help you to become the true catalyst for change in your organisation.
