Post-Cop26 – The GCs view: unlocking the potential of in-house counsel


This interactive webinar is a follow-up to our Finance and Net Zero webinar hosted live from COP26 and will reflect on the outcomes of COP26 as well as look ahead at next steps in the transition to a net zero economy. It will delve deeper into in-house lawyers’ view on how their organisations can help achieve net zero. As GCs are in a unique position to drive conversations around the climate crisis, our discussion will further explore their influence on their respective companies’ policies and how this has developed since COP26. We will also come back to the opportunities that a shift to net zero can afford, and how it can turn into a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

This webinar is relevant for all in the legal sector who want to understand the implications of net zero, learn about varying responses to the needs of net zero, and take action to support their organisations in delivering net zero.

Join our discussion now by registering and participating in our quick survey. On the day, you will not only hear select GCs share their perspectives and experiences post-COP26, but we will also reveal and provide an analysis of our survey results.
