Even as the world battles to defeat Covid-19, businesses and organisations of all kinds are rethinking their models and processes to sustainably change society for the better. This includes the transition to Net Zero. With governments and cities throughout GB and the world declaring ambitious Zero Carbon targets. It’s clear that this will generate significant business opportunities.
What will those opportunities mean for the geospatial industry? What are the barriers to realising those opportunities and who is leading the way?
To kick off this introductory #GeovationNetZero session, we are delighted to be hosting Denise McKenzie – Director (EIRP) Benchmark Initiative, Geovation, Ordnance Survey and Chair, Association of Geographic Information (AGI). The AGI’s flagship conference last year – GeoCom2019 – was titled: Hitting Net Zero – Applying geospatial to global challenges.
…and to bring a contribution from a pioneering start-up company to the table, we’re delighted to hear from Topolytics CEO, Michael Groves. Michael’s company won the 2019 Google Cloud SAP Circular Economy 2030 Challenge, and we are delighted he can join us to explain the opportunity they are developing.
We look forward to this stimulating introductory session on Tuesday 12 May at 11am – to join the talk please register using this link.
The transition to NetZero will need to address decarbonisation, deliver sustainable consumption and production, and create a regenerative and sustainable bio-economy and therefore, further sessions in the #GeovationNetZero series will follow on these areas:
Decarbonisation – Tuesday 9 June 11am
Regenerative and sustainable bio-economy – Tuesday 23 June 11am
Sustainable consumption and production – Tuesday 7 July 11am
We look forward to speaking with you!
