A dynamic panel will discuss this vital issue, including senior representatives from international businesses covering multiple economic sectors, who have taken on ambitious and credible climate targets. The panel, chaired by former UK Prime Minister Theresa May MP, will set out the progress they have made to date, what the next steps are on their journey, and where governments can best support their strategies to achieve their targets. This will be followed by a drinks reception prior to the event's close at 8.30pm.
