CDP and First Climate are presenting an online seminar on the 28th April

More and more companies are setting ambitious targets to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050. But what exactly does ‘net-zero’ mean? What are the differences and advantages of a net-zero target compared to other corporate climate commitments? On the 28th April 2021 First Climate in partnership with CDP will be hosting a free online seminar to answer these questions and further explore what it means to go ‘net zero’.

The online seminar is designed to be an interactive event; companies who are interested can learn what options are available for them to implement targeted measures in preparation for future climate-related challenges as well as what to watch out for when setting their own net-zero target. The role of carbon offsetting in reaching net-zero will in particular be highlighted in discussions.

Whilst discussing net-zero, First Climate’s experts, Andrew Bonneau and Vincent Erasmy, will present best practice examples from the corporate environment and also discuss the importance of Science Based Targets (SBT). As First Climate is an official Silver Renewable Energy Partner and Science Based Targets Partner of CDP, the First Climate team will also be accompanied by Lea Fink, Global Manager at CDP. Lea will be speaking about Business Ambition for 1.5°C Campaign by the UNFCCC as well as the involvement of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in developing a net-zero standard. The presentations will be followed by a discussion round.

The online seminar takes place on
