Net zero: from science to strategy webinar

About the event

The number of businesses with net zero commitments have rapidly increased since COP26 and now cover 92% of the global economy.

Aligning operations with emerging net zero policy and regulation is not only vital, but also an exciting and important opportunity to attract top talent, mitigate supply chain risks and future proof strategies. But what does 'good net zero' mean for businesses?

Recent Oxford Net Zero research has mapped criteria of net zero governance across 37 different voluntary guidance documents, orchestration campaigns and disclosure frameworks.

This webinar - for senior leaders, in strategy, finance or operations roles, chief sustainability officers and those tasked with meeting net zero goals - will cover the basic science and economics of net zero, the existing landscape of voluntary net zero pledges, standards and emerging regulation. We will continue with a discussion between leading experts studying climate and business, touching on the important re-framing of net zero as a strategic business opportunity.

Attendees will learn:

  1. the science of achieving net zero
  2. existing and planned regulation for corporate compliance with net zero goals
  3. sustainable business models and how they can unlock strategic advantage and growth.

The event is hosted by Mary Johnstone-Louis, Senior Fellow in Management Practice and co-director of the online Oxford Leading Sustainable Corporations and on-campus Oxford Sustainable Business programmes.
