The tide is turning as businesses step up and make commitments to net zero. However, many organisations still lack the roadmap to translate pledge into reality.

The discussion, chaired by BusinessGreen editor in chief James Murray, can be watched in full 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.
