Ahead of the annual Caring for Climate Meeting and the COP26, we are looking to help formulate the vision for British-Dutch SMEs in addressing climate change and contributing to a green recovery. During this interactive webinar, we will work together, share best practices, common goals and define concrete actions.
Businesses have a critical role to play in the transition to a sustainable future. Through holistic net-zero strategies, companies can not only reduce their impact on the environment, but also, contribute to the transition towards a net-zero society through finance, innovation, and advocacy.
