Environmental Emergency: How Will Your Organization Respond?

June 24

This text is taken from the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital .


“Late last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report informing the world that there were only 12 years remaining to make the changes necessary in order to avoid the most severe effects of climate change.

A few months later in May, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services issued a wake-up call to the world with a report highlighting the widespread damage humanity has inflicted to nature across every continent, and the effects this will have to the global economy.

In response to these reports, national and sub-national governments around the world are declaring states of climate emergency, but how can your organisation respond? Join the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital this June for a special event at the University of Edinburgh Business School, where a high-level panel from the public and private sectors will discuss how their organisations are responding to these threats, and find out what your organisation can do too.

Confirmed speakers:

Jo Pike, Chief Executive, Scottish Wildlife Trust
Gary Gillespie, Chief Economist, Scottish Government
Andrew Griffiths, Head of Value Chain Sustainability, Nestlé
