2021 Castlefield Symposium

“Net Zero – will COP26 be a cop-out?”

Join us on 16 September 2021 (5:00pm-6.30pm) for a Keynote presentation by Matthew Bell OBE and discussion forum with an expert panel of guests

Our fourth annual Castlefield event will discuss what Net Zero really means and what’s required to achieve it, regardless of the success or otherwise of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) taking place in Glasgow later this year.

Much is being made of COP26, particularly as the UK is playing host this year. But what will really change? Without serious legislative or regulatory change, there’s a risk it acts simply as a talking shop where world leaders engage in fruitless networking and opportunist PR.

Please join us for a thought-provoking evening, as we discuss company, government, community and individual actions through the lens of a Thoughtful Investor.

There will also be the opportunity to pose questions to the panel in our subsequent Q&A session.

Our expert panel features:

  • Julia Creasey (Croda International)
  • Teni Ekundare (FAIRR)
  • Ita McMahon (Castlefield)
  • Professor Jonatan Pinkse (Alliance Business School, Manchester University)
  • Peter Uhlenbruch (ShareAction)

Chaired by Olivia Bowen (Castlefield)

We would love you to join us to explore how companies and wider stakeholders are working towards Net Zero, with or without good outcomes from COP26.
