Climate Change - Involving The Big Players

Oct 1, 2009 · Greater London, United Kingdom

Tackling climate change and reducing our carbon footprint is about changing personal behaviour but it is also about changing corporate and government behaviour too. Without the major consumers of energy making significant and technological changes then maintaining a sustainable planet will be impossible. In this meeting we are going to look at how changes can take place at the high tech end and how corporations must get involved. We will first have an overview of the issue, then two case studies of those who are making a difference and finally we will have three or fours companies who will give a short description of what they do and how it is possible to make a difference. We will then open this up to comments and discuss how we can make this the practice in all our major institutions and businesses.
