Climate emergency and what it means for business

Celebrating our 21st Anniversary, UKBCSD played host to over 60 guests at its annual dinner on 9th January.

Held at the Royal Horseguards Hotel, London, a venue befitting of a significant anniversary for UKBCSD the event sponsored by Sir Robert McAlpine and Prologis UK, whose support and presence was a valuable addition to the evening’s proceedings.

Attracting leadership representatives from the widest range of businesses and public sectors yet assembled, guests were engaged in debate led by two speakers of national reknown in Dr Geoff Kendall, of Future Fit Business and Professor Rob Holdway of Giraffe Innovations, to respond to the challenge and opportunity emerging from the theme of the evening.

 

 

Overall, guests were united in their position: "2020 - business must lead the debate for change"

2020 the year the UK hosts the COP26 International Climate Summit, presents the opportunity for business, across all sectors, to show the power of its collaborative efforts in promoting the strategies needed to communicate our impact on climate change and enhance the UK’s productive capability, to the highest levels of Government.

We’re grateful to have received such generous support from our sponsors, speakers and guests in making this a very engaging and memorable evening. The positive closing remarks regarding future collaborations with us, was most welcome.

We look forward to 2020, our 21st year, in taking a proactive position on the economic concerns shared by our members and partners.
