Race to Zero in Slovakia: Business
18th March 2021, 9:00 - 13:00
While there are few positives to take from the global pandemic, one is that businesses now better understand the disruptive potential of unforeseen shocks. A useful lesson has been the need to change what we do, and how we do it, far more quickly than was initially imagined. The United Nations’ Race to Zero is a global campaign to mobilise leadership and support for a healthy, resilient, zero-carbon coronavirus recovery which creates well-paying jobs, unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth and prevents future threats.
This event will showcase the actions that companies from all sectors and of all sizes are doing to align their strategies and operations to become carbon neutral. Slovakia has recently joined the UK and EU countries and committed to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This can be reached only if businesses, cities, regions, universities and government work together. The time for action is right now.
