Six panels on sustainability – coming soon!
Post-COP: Where did we get to, what were the big ideas, and where did we get it wrong?
This public webinar series will take place after COP26 and will explore whether politicians and leaders have addressed the most critical social and environmental challenges contributing to climate change. Aspen UK will convene a six part webinar to discuss what was achieved, what issues were missed, and what to expect next.
If this year’s UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) fails, the world’s leading climate scientists warn that billions of people will be at risk of chronic water scarcity, tens of millions will be exposed to hunger, and places near the equator will experience unendurable heat. They agree there will be financial and social instability, and devastating impacts on human health.
So expectations for this year’s Biodiversity COP15 and COP26 are high. Will our world leaders deliver the ambitious pledges and cogent plans necessary to tackle the climate emergency?
Credit Suisse is partnering with Aspen UK to host this series of talks on sustainability. They believe that embracing sustainability in everything they do is essential to their long-term success.
