Event description
Join us for this bi-annual event where key decision makers come together to discuss updates to Bristol's carbon neutrality journey.

About this Event

We are keeping a close eye on all updates in relation to COVID-19. Our January events are now online, and include the same opportunities to network, take part in live discussion and the option to do a 60 second pitch!

We will welcome back representatives from Bristol City Council, Bristol's One City Environmental Sustainability Board and City Leap to discuss how Bristol's 2030 carbon neutrality commitment has progressed over the last 6 months. We are also welcoming Finisterre and Burges Salmon to join the speaking panel. This is the fourth follow up event since May 2019.

With many questions posed by our audience at our last three events, speakers have kindly agreed to come back to give another update six months on. Speakers are given 5 minute presenting slots, and then we will open it up to the audience to ask their questions.

As with all our events, there will be ample opportunity to network both at the beginning and the end of the event.

More speakers and information to be announced.
