Special COP26 ‘Face-2-Face’ event: What does sustainability mean for my business now?

 

Event synopsis:

At this special COP26 seminar, we’ll hear from a cross section of supply chain industry leaders on how different organisations are implementing ‘Environmental, Social and Governance’ (ESG) changes designed to have a positive impact on ethical and sustainability challenges faced by every business globally.

 

We’ll get unique insight into not only the challenges faced but also the opportunities that ESG brings, from a happier and more productive workforce, to greater access to funds and investment, and ‘first mover advantage’ in response to the climate emergency we are all facing and about which the COP26 Conference is all about.

 

Held at the International Maritime Hub at the City of Glasgow College, this hybrid and fully interactive forum is part of the long established Mersey Maritime ‘Face-2-Face’ series and will be chaired by CEO of Mersey Maritime and Assistant Chair of Maritime UK, Chris Shirling-Rooke in partnership with the Scottish Maritime Cluster.
