Climate change has climbed to the top of corporate agenda as the world races to limit global warming to 1.5°C as per the Paris Agreement. To achieve this, global greenhouse gas emissions will have to peak before 2025 at the latest and ultimately reach net zero by 2050. Given the limited window of opportunity available, immediate, rapid and large-scale reduction of all greenhouse gases will be needed if the 1.5°C goal is to be attained. How can businesses play a part in turning the tide on climate change while building resilience against climate impacts? What are the challenges, opportunities and tools that companies should be aware of in taking action to address climate change?
Join us at a seminar on 18 October when climate and sustainability experts from Arup, including Ir Dr Bruce Chong, Ir Dr Tony Lam and Dr Homan Wong, will share practical advice on ways businesses can mitigate climate-induced risks and promote sustainability in a corporate setting.
They will be joined by Gill Meller from MTR, Suzanne Cheung from Swire Coca-Cola HK, and Dennis Wong from HKT, for a panel discussion on best practices and key challenges in driving climate-resilient development.
This is the fourth in a series of seminars on 'Decarbonizing Hong Kong 2050', which focuses on how the government, businesses and communities are working towards Hong Kong's goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
