Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership

Bringing together perspectives from a wide range of stakeholders this event examines where we have got to now and what needs to happen beyond COP26 – not just to put us on track to halve global emissions by 2030, but also to help economies globally to build forward better following the pandemic, protect communities and nature, and build resilience to climate change.

“The easiest way to get started is to start inside out. Start with your own people.It is about, driving different consumer behaviour, creating green markets to move the marketplace.”

Wendy Clark, Global CEO, Dentsu international, Director and Executive Officer, Dentsu Group Inc.

“I don’t think we will get to net zero unless we’re looking at what impact an organisation has on the world and the impact that world has on an organisation.”

Jessica Fries, Executive Chairman, Accounting for Sustainability

“The next phase is about engaging people and helping them change their lifestyles. This includes the people inside our own organisations – how we can turn our 10,000 staff into activities to support climate action"
