Deloitte has two more webinars taking place as part of their Eco-nomics series during May.

Posted: 26th April 2022

Thursday 5 May – Biodiversity and business go hand in hand

This webinar will focus on the intrinsic links between business and biodiversity.

Mike Barber and Tom Harris from Deloitte’s Risk Advisory practice will each discuss how businesses are affected by nature loss and what we can do about it, and getting confidence over environmental impact measurement; focusing on carbon reporting and the use of space data for environmental impact measurement. Guest speaker Sarah Brown of The Scottish Marine Environmental Enhancement Fund, will also provide an overview of this unique fund driven by Marine Scotland, Crown Estate Scotland and NatureScot which provides a trusted route for private finance to be voluntarily reinvested in the health of our oceans.

The webinar will take place on Zoom between 10:30 and 11:30 on Thursday 5 May and you can register here.

Thursday 19 May – The Futures We Want – are you ready to turn?

Postponed from March, at this webinar Dr. Siobhan Gardiner, a Director in Deloitte’s ESG Advisory practice, will talk about the road ahead following proceedings at COP26 in Glasgow. Siobhan will then present the Futures We Want, a project commissioned in 2021 by the UK in its role as COP26 President, which sought to explore what the future could look like in a climate-resilient, net-zero world.
Dr. Ric Simes, Senior Economic Advisor at Deloitte will also talk about their recent Turning point report; insights include that rather than climate action being a drain on the economy, there is a window of opportunity to act now to significantly boost GDP and provide new employment opportunities for citizens.

This webinar will take place on Zoom between 9.00 and 10.00am on Thursday 19 May and you can register here.
