We are delighted to announce that The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP, COP26 President will deliver the opening address at our Focus Forward conference, in partnership with Royal Bank of Scotland.
As the city of Glasgow prepares to host the COP26 summit in November 2021, the UK Presidency is a pivotal moment as the business community emerges from the COVID pandemic to focus on an issue which will impact us all and be the conversation of a generation.
We are all aware of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the business community as we address climate change and our role in reducing carbon emissions.
The event will explore and evaluate the role of businesses in addressing the UK national and local targets to fighting climate change, and how as a city we can establish an economic model to foster business growth, attract business investment and talent as we move into the 2020’s.
The event will explore...
