Join us on Thursday to hear from a host of leading experts, including WWF's Tanya Steel, Professor Partha Dasgupta, and Environment Minister Rebecca Pow

There are just a few days left to sign up for this week's inaugural Net Zero Nature Summit, which will be broadcast live this Thursday May 27th from BusinessGreen's studios in central London.

The day long virtual Summit will bring together hundreds of delegates from across the green economy and scores of leading experts on how to accelerate the net zero transition and enhance natural carbon sinks.

You can apply for an invitation to the event through the Net Zero Nature website until 5pm on Wednesday 26th May.

Delivered with support from our partner GSK and Net Zero Nature Content Hub partners Boston Consulting Group and SNC Lavalin, all of the sessions from the Summit will be available on demand through the event platform after the event.

The latest event in BusinessGreen's Net Zero Festival 2021, the Net Zero Nature Summit will kick off with a keynote interview with WWF UK CEO Tanya Steel and opening keynote presentation from Tony Juniper, chair of Natural England.

The morning will also feature an exclusive interview with the Professor Partha Dasgupta, author of the landmark Dasgupta Review on the economics of biodiversity, and panel discussions on the role of carbon offsets and advanced technologies in enhancing and expanding natural carbon sinks.

Through a series of interactive debates and case studies the event will provide insights into how a raft of leading businesses, including Unilever, Danone, Tesco, Sky, and Mondi, are integrating nature-focused projects into their wider net zero strategies.

The afternoon will also feature a discussion with health and pharma giant GSK on the connections between health, climate, and nature.

The event will close with an exclusive keynote address from Environment Minister Rebecca Pow on the government's latest wave of nature-focused policies and plans for accelerating the net zero transition.

The Net Zero Nature Summit comes just days after the first wave of tickets was released for this year's main Net Zero Festival this September, which will feature three days of broadcast content, an exclusive drinks reception, and the return of the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards - the deadline for entries for which falls on June 11th.
