About this Event

Carbon target – set it like you mean it

Christchurch Event (20 September)

Due to great demand attendance is limited to two people per organisation. Thanks for your understanding.

Carbon targets are no longer a nice to have. They are a license to operate! Carbon targets increase resilience and deliver tangible business value:

79% of companies setting targets report it has boosted their brand reputation, 63% say it’s driven innovation and 52% state investor confidence has been boosted.

WWF-New Zealand and thinkstep ANZ invite you to a hands-on workshop which will explore through local case studies, a panel discussion and an interactive session the following topics:

• Business drivers and investor requirements around carbon targets

• Practical approaches to setting an ambitious target

• Scope 3 challenges and opportunities

• Absolute versus intensity based targets

• Approaches that are available for setting a science-based target

• Alternatives to setting a formally approved science-based target

Participants will have the opportunity to share their experience and learn directly from technical and industry experts. Through a practical exercise, companies will identify barriers to setting meaningful carbon reduction targets, the adoption of a science-based target, as well as levers and tactics to overcome these barriers.

This is a free event but we will charge a No-show fee of $20 if cancelled less than 48 hours before the event.

Our speakers include:

  • Rhys Boswell, GM Strategy and Sustainability, Christchurch International Airport Ltd
  • Dave Maslen, GM Markets and Sustainability, The New Zealand Merino Company
  • David Tong, Climate Change Programme Manager, WWF-New Zealand
  • Barbara Nebel, CEO, thinkstep

Due to great demand attendance is limited to two people per organisation. Thanks for your understanding.
