Overview

The Board Masterclass - What You Need to Know About Climate Change

Our current trajectory is towards 3.5 to 4.5°C rise in temperature, which would be catastrophic for much of the world. To keep to 1.5°C emissions need to peak in 2020.

The IPCC report released in September 2018 showed that we had 12 years to avoid a catastrophic outcome for the planet. Business is key to driving this change.

The Financial Times Board Director Programme has worked with Chapter Zero to put together this compelling and highly practical half-day Masterclass.

The sessions are followed by networking drinks to give you the opportunity to meet informally with our speakers and fellow delegates.

Attendance at each workshop will entitle attendees to receive a special FT NED Programme Board Masterclass Certificate of Continuing Professional Development for 5 hours of structured learning.
