Launch of new BITCI Low Carbon Pledge

Event Duration

1 hour

Event Description

Launch of our new ambitious Low Carbon Pledge takes place on Wednesday, 24th March from 11am – 12 noon. 

Originally launched in 2018, the Low Carbon Pledge has now evolved and calls on all Irish businesses to work towards setting science-based emission reduction targets (i.e. what science says is necessary to limit global warming to 1.5°C) by 2024 at the latest.

This year COP 26 will take place in Glasgow and Ireland’s reputation on climate action will come into focus. With investors, employees, customers, and regulators asking business for transparency on actions to reduce carbon emissions, the Low Carbon Pledge, recognised by the Irish government in its Climate Action Plan, is driving transparency and reporting.

During this webinar, Minister for Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport, Eamon Ryan TD will formally launch our new Low Carbon Pledge, we will unveil Ireland’s top companies who have signed up, and we will hear from a panel of signatory business leaders on the concrete steps they are taking to address climate change. This is a must-attend event for businesses interested in addressing the climate crisis and looking for insights on how to take action.

 Confirmed speakers include:
 

  • Minister for Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport, Eamon Ryan TD
  • Gill Higgins, Head of Sustainability, Dawn Meats Group
  • Andrew Flynn Janssen Pharmaceutical SciencesGeneral Manager, ,
  • Tomás SercovichBusiness in the Community Ireland, CEO,
