VIDEO: Climate Analytics CEO Bill Hare, ShareAction CEO Catherine Howarth, CDP CEO Paul Simpson, and Nomad Foods CEO Stefan Descheemaeker discuss how to avoid greenwash at the Net Zero Festival

With major net zero commitments being announced on a daily basis, how can we ensure that businesses deliver on their net zero promises? How can we prevent the net zero agenda from being highjacked by greenwash?

With climate campaigners including Greta Thunberg having questioned the very notion of 'net zero', the credibiliy of corporate climate targets is a hugely pressing issue for the green economy - and one which a host of leading experts sought to tackle during a fascinating discussion at BusinessGreen's recent Net Zero Festival.

Taking part were Climate Analytics CEO Bill Hare, ShareAction CEO Catherine Howarth, CDP CEO Paul Simpson, and Nomad Foods CEO Stefan Descheemaeker. their discussion, which was chaired by broadcaster Gavin Esler, can be watched in full again above.

All of the panel debates, keynote speeches, and presentations from the Net Zero Festival - which took place over three days from 29 September 2021 featuring hundreds of top speakers from business, politics and academia - are now available to watch again on demand by signing up for free on the Net Zero Festival website.
