UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub to host Net Zero Transition Plans: Credibility and Action event 12th February

FinTech North is delighted to share an exciting event that is set to focus on how to navigate and enable the journey and transition to Net Zero!

UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub are hosting the Net Zero Transition Plans: Credibility and Action event on the 12th of February from 2pm-6:30pm at University of Leeds’ NEXUS facility.

The Transition Plan Taskforce (TPT) has developed a Disclosure Framework to help companies create robust and credible transition plans, and the FCA and the UK Government have both committed to consult on transition plan requirements, informed by the TPT. This is part of a global movement where jurisdictions such as the US, EU, Japan, Singapore, and Australia are all considering policies and regulations around transition plans. Financial institutions and companies have an opportunity to learn and get ahead as future regulations unfold.

This UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub event will feature representatives from the TPT, financial institutions, businesses, and academia discussing case studies and best practice in the rapidly changing policy and regulatory environment.

Delegates can expect to enjoy content, such as:

– Welcome and presentation from UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub, delivered by Professor Iain Clacher, Pro Dean at University of Leeds and Director, UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub

– ‘What are transition plans and why do they matter?’ – keynote delivered by Jacques Morris, Team Leader at Transition Plan Taskforce Secretariat and Head of Policy at UK CGFI

– Two panel discussions; the first, titled ‘How can transition plans enable the journey to net-zero and climate resilience in the financial sector.

– The second, titled ‘How can transition plans support climate resilience in the food systems.’

– Networking reception

The event welcomes attendees with a professional interest in this topic, including those from:

– Financial institutions, corporates, and SME businesses from all sectors.

– Climate and environmental scientists from academia and not-for-profit research centres.
