London #3 - Business, But Different
Climate change topped the agenda at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos. Business leaders are finally waking up to the stark reality of the climate crisis, and the urgent need to take action. Join us on 27th February to explore how we can make 2020 the year of "business, but different".

About the event
UPDATE: WE'VE SOLD OUT! PLEASE SIGN UP TO HEAR ABOUT FUTURE EVENTS HERE
You’ll hear short speeches from:
- Asim Hussain, Green Cloud Advocacy Lead at Microsoft, will share what the tech giant is doing about climate change, including the company’s ’carbon fee’. He’ll also talk about what he’s up to with the climateaction.tech community.
- Jo Daniels, Senior Sustainable Business and Partnerships Manager at M&S, will give us an overview of the retailer's sustainability programme across its food and fashion products.
- Jon Khoo, Regional Sustainability Manager at Interface, will share what the carpet manufacturer’s ‘climate take back’ mission means in practice.
We'll have interactive boards and displays to bring to life the good, the bad and the ugly of businesses' climate efforts on the night. Please fill out our short (anonymous) survey to give us some of your personal stories: https://forms.gle/tXMR58QrM7xfbQiz5
We have a discount on buying tickets in twos (£8 for two, vs £6 for one) because we think it's important to reach out beyond the usual suspects. We encourage you to use your second ticket to invite someone who is interested but yet to be fully converted to the climate cause.
