Net Zero Summit: Two weeks left to register your place

Delegates can sign up now for the Net Zero Finance Summit, which is taking place online on Tuesday 29th March

There is just two weeks to go until the second annual Net Zero Finance Summit, which will take place online on Tuesday 29th March.

The day-long interactive virtual summit will be broadcast from BusinessGreen's Studios in Central London, bringing together top investors and experts from across the green economy to explore how to accelerate the transition towards net zero emission portfolios, and the challenges and opportunities that will result. 

Delegates can secure their place now at the Summit, joining hundreds of investors, asset managers, corporates, policymakers, and campaigners at the virtual event.

The Summit will feature an opening keynote address from Energy and Climate Minister Greg Hands, as well as contributions from a host of internationally renowned green finance experts, including Sony Kapoor of The Nordic Institute for Finance, Technology, and Sustainability, Carbon Tracker's Mark Campanale, and Catherine Koffman from the Development Bank of Southern Africa.

Other confirmed speakers at the event include Julian Mylchreest, executive vice chairman at Bank of America, Tara Schmidt, sustainability and ESG finance Director at Lloyds Banking Group, and Robert King, head of sustainable finance at HSBC. 

"Finance is arguably the most important lever for accelerating the net zero transition, as well as one of the industries most exposed to climate-related risks," said BusinessGreen editor-in-chief James Murray. "As such, we're delighted to bring together some an expert and respected line up of speakers to explore the challenges and opportunities all businesses are facing, and discuss how companies and investors can best turn admirable net zero targets into tangible action."

Anyone registering for the event will be able to attend live and/or catch up with any sessions they may miss on demand after the event.

In addition, by attending the event delegates will be able to earn CPD points to contribute to their professional portfolio. 

You can register now to join us virtually on Tuesday 29 March for a day of learning, leadership and practical insights from some of the biggest names in sustainable finance.

Net Zero Finance forms part of BusinessGreen's third annual Net Zero Festival programme, which is taking place this September. Further details for the Festival will be announced in the coming weeks and you can register your interest in the event now.
