A Toolkit To Assess Climate-Related Risks And Opportunities In Your Business, Now And In The Future

Join fellow directors at a scenario planning workshop on climate change resilience.

This workshop will show how to identify climate impacts and develop scenarios that illustrate potential risks and opportunities, translating these into changes in company value and cash flow.

Using worked examples, experts from the Carbon Trust will cover how you can assess climate related impacts for your company by building a dynamic framework to capture the opportunities and risks in the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy.

There will also be the opportunity to network with fellow Non-Executive Directors on these issues.

Please note these events are for Non-Executive Directors only.

Science-Based Targets Workshop

A carbon emissions target is defined as ‘science-based’ if it is in line with the level of decarbonisation required to keep the global temperature increase well-below 2°C compared to pre-industrial temperatures. Setting a science-based target enables businesses to align themselves with the carbon reduction commitments made under the Paris Agreement.

We will also be running a pilot workshop providing an overview of how companies can use science-based target methodologies to set corporate carbon emission reduction targets to respond to the climate change challenge and shape their business strategy.

There will also be the opportunity to network with fellow Non-Executive Directors on these issues.

Please note that this workshop is for Non-Executive Directors only.

These workshops are in partnership with Chapter Zero, the Directors' Climate Forum.

Chapter Zero is a special network for non-executive directors committed to developing their knowledge of the implications of climate change for UK business. Given the far-reaching impact and implications, our purpose is to enable these directors to better understand how it is likely to affect their companies and sectors, and to encourage their boards to hold informed and strategic discussions and respond effectively to the climate change challenge. The name of the network, Chapter Zero, reflects the drive towards a net zero carbon economy and the major role business will play in achieving it.
