The requirements for net zero – it’s no April fools

Event date: April 01, 2021

Thursday, 01 April 2021, 14:00–15:00


A joint RSK and Browne Jacobson event
In 2019, the UK was the first major economy to pass a law requiring net-zero emissions by 2050. Since then, the conversation about net zero and how to reach it has gained momentum, especially with the emphasis on a ‘green recovery’ from COVID-19.

As leaders in the discussion on net zero, Pellings, part of the RSK group, and the specialist environmental legal team at Browne Jacobson join forces for this virtual event addressing the requirement for net zero.

The webinar will discuss not only the current statutory framework to achieve net zero and how this is likely to evolve, but also what practical steps public- and private-sector organisations can take now.

The event is free to attend, so sign up now to reserve your place.

Topics will include:

Net zero – a look at the current statutory framework and how this is likely to evolve
Setting the scene, this element of the presentation will identify the existing policy and regulatory drivers for net zero, and what to expect in 2021 and beyond.

Net zero – stand and deliver, road mapping from pledge to outcomes
As clients declare net zero commitments and pledges, what does this mean for day-to-day operations, for the management of assets and the stewardship of carbon? Where do we start the journey towards effective outcomes rather than outputs, and what are the real drivers, challenges and opportunities?

Speakers will include Nigel Goddard, Partner and Head of Business Development and Marketing for Pellings, and Browne Jacobson Partners Richard Barlow and Ben Standing.
