TEDx Countdown video presentations 2021
We saw some innovative progress at COP26 in November 2021 and the first real consensus is that businesses have a big role to play and so for many family businesses this will become a bigger priority. How will your business go about measuring and reducing emissions sooner rather than later? Will you harness the talent and experience of younger family members to strengthen your transition to a less selfish future?
These videos are an introduction, with views from Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, climate expert Johan Rockström and Zac Goldsmith, among others.
In February, as part of our month long focus on Businesses as a Force for Good, we will discuss in an interactive roundtable different aspects of how family business leaders can lean into the changes required by the climate crisis. The date for this event will be confirmed soon.
Enjoy this fantastic Tedx content, and let's talk in February.
