The transition to a net zero future will require transformative change across all parts of society and the economy. Professionals will be at the forefront of this and it is essential that they have the skills and knowledge to drive change in their respective sectors. Transformative change is reliant upon systems thinking, which in turn hinges on the ability for communication and collaboration across sectors. Each holds a piece of the puzzle for a net zero future, but we need to bring these all together to make these ambitions a reality.
Collaboration is the ethos of the Professional Bodies Climate Action Charter (link below), and it is with this in mind that we are holding the very first event tackling one of the key objectives of the Charter – to empower and support our members to drive sustainable growth – at London Climate Action Week 2022.
Speakers from the staff and membership of the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES), Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Institute of Environmental Management (IEMA) will illustrate how professional bodies are working to better understand their members’ needs and share effective actions. Discussions and networking will identify areas of overlap between the professions and further collaboration opportunities.
