Sustainability and climate change has continued to dominate on the global stage - despite a global pandemic.

Public opinion has accelerated, and organisations everywhere are being scrutinised for their actions and contribution to the global effort.

Ensuring your organisation has a green-focused recovery is now business-critical and a major cornerstone of your reputation, inside and out. So what are the possible pathways for organisations now taking corporate action and commitment to climate change?

In this episode, we discuss with Jonathan Shopley, Managing Director of External Affairs at Natural Capital Partners why and how Net Zero is playing a crucial role globally in corporate action and commitments on climate change.
