The Road to COP26: Brunswick Briefing

Action on climate change has intensified during the pandemic – defying the expectations of many. For business, preparing for a net zero world is now a base-line commercial and financial imperative.

In 2021, the focus on climate will continue to increase in the run-up to COP26 – which will be the most significant global climate conference since Paris in 2015.

Join Brunswick on Wednesday, March 17th for The Road to COP26 – a webinar briefing session where we will be tackling the key questions around this important climate conversation.

We will be asking:

  • Why does COP26 matter?

  • What are the expectations on business to take action?

  • What does business leadership on climate look like?

  • What are the opportunities – and risks?

  • How can companies prepare – and participate?

We will be hosting two sessions of this webinar to reflect the global nature of this discussion.

  • Session 1: 09:00 - 10:00 GMT / 10:00 - 11:00 CET / 17:00 - 18:00 HKT

  • Session 2: 17:00 - 18:00 GMT / 12:00 - 13:00 EST / 09:00 - 10:00 PST

When registering, please select the session that best suits your time-zone.

Registration is now open and available below.
