Decarbonising the Public Sector Webinar

The Treasury Committee recently launched an inquiry into the decarbonisation of the UK Economy and Green Finance.

The Committee asks some pertinent questions about the role of HM Treasury, regulators and financial service firms in supporting the Government’s climate change commitments.

Climate change is one of the most important aspects of today’s lifestyle – our future and that of future generations is dependent on how we handle these huge issues. Climate change is on the agenda of most progressive governments, yet do government officials know;

  • What to do?; and
  • How to do it?

Join us on 3 September 2019 and listen to Richard Spencer, ICAEW’s Head of Sustainability discuss the role of the profession in decarbonising the Public Sector.

Richard states: ‘if you are serious about doing this, you need to be consistent across the economy and join up with the UN’s global goals’.

Richard will explore:

  • The roles of the profession and policymakers in leading and advising business; and
  • How the principles can be built into government spending.

Climate change is not just about measuring carbon emissions. You need to go beyond. As public finance professionals how do you start to think about this and what do you need to do now to make changes for our future?

The discussion will enable you to:

  • Consider how you can link your strategy to the UN global goals
  • Think about what you need to do now to make changes for the future
  • Understand your role better in combating climate change
