The race plan for net-zero

Wednesday, 20 October 2021

Extreme weather events in our own backyards, along with pressure from governments, regulators and customers, have sparked headlines calling for urgent action to address global climate change and get to net-zero. But what does a plan to get to net-zero actually look like?

Driven by the pivotal role finance can play in a sustainable future, BNP Paribas will gather business leaders including corporate decision-makers, investors and policymakers across Asia Pacific, EMEA and the Americas to break down the ‘how’ in creating a ‘race plan for net-zero’.

This year’s Global Edition offers a ‘follow-the-sun’ programme with broadcast hubs to bring both local and global perspectives telling the stories of countries and companies on the road to net-zero and the implications for business. You will hear insights and inspiration from companies already on the transition journey, through live and dynamic conversations with leading global specialists, innovators, and personalities.

This event is exclusively for

BNP Paribas clients.

Please contact your relationship manager if you would like to attend.
