Toby Robins


This session is for: CEOs, MDs, sustainability leaders, heads of corporate sustainability

Society, as we currently know it, produces a range of gases that enter the Earth’s atmosphere creating a thin but effective blanket around the planet. This blanket is trapping heat which is inexorably changing the environment that has provided the ‘goldilocks’ conditions that have allowed humanity to thrive. The planet has various mechanisms that absorb the greenhouse gases being generated but these are currently out of balance with what is being produced.  

There is therefore an urgent imperative to transition to new ways of working and living so that the amount of gases produced is matched by the planet’s capacity to absorb it and thereby create a ‘net zero’ impact on the atmosphere. Nations throughout the world are implementing regulations to drive the decarbonisation of the economy. This creates risks, obligations and opportunities for you and your business. 

This seminar will provide you with taught theory and practical guidance on how to implement sustainability across your business. Delegates will receive critical advice on how to implement sustainable strategies for measuring carbon emissions in all three scopes.
