Transition Plan Taskforce Seminar
Where: Online, for LSA Members only
When: 1st February, 12-1pm
Net zero and transition plans have become new norms in private sector ambition. An increasing number of organisations are making public commitments to reach net zero. Yet existing transition plans vary in detail and quality, limiting the ability of stakeholders to assess their credibility.
There is significant demand from the private sector for standardised, high quality plans to make better-informed decisions about how to allocate capital. This will support the UK’s transition to net zero.
Find out more about the Transition Plan in this LSA/TPT seminar, featuring Jacques Morris – Secretariat Team Leader and Policy Lead and Ira Poensgen, Secretariat Research Assistant.
The Transition Plan Taskforce was launched to develop the gold standard for private sector climate transition plans. LSA Members - find out more in this seminar. 📅 1st February ⏲️ 12-1pm. With Jaques Morris, Secretariat Team Leader @TPTaskforce Tickets👇 https://t.co/ygWAjT7RPG Read More
