Reset Connect, an innovative sustainability and net-zero event for business leaders has unveiled its exciting speaker line-up, which includes representatives from household brands Mitie, Rolls Royce and Starling Bank.
Taking place on 28th – 29th June 2022 at London’s ExCeL, Reset Connect is fast-becoming the UK’s largest sustainability ecosystem and green investment event, committed to bridging the gap between business leaders, government and funding to drive real and impactful environmental change.
Working in partnership with London Climate Action Week, this will be the first in-person Reset Connect event to take place, following the success of its virtual launch in 2021.
With 100+ confirmed exhibitors, the two-day event will welcome over 120 speakers through a combination of workshops, keynote talks and engaging panel discussions across five different stages.
HigHlights for business leaders include:
- A keynote on strategic update on plans for a Greener London
- A panel discussion on ‘Greening Finance: A Roadmap to Transforming Business to Net-Zero”, featuring Fabiana Fedeli, CIO, Equities and Multi Asset for M&G Investments
- A panel discussion on “Equipping the next generation of employees to drive the change to net zero: Education and Upskilling for Sustainable Development”, featuring Ian Funnell, CEO for UK and Ireland of Hitachi Energy
- A panel discussion on “How Can the UK Lead on Food Sustainability”, featuring Carl Oliver, Founder and CEO of Sustained.
With the UK requiring an average investment of £40 billion per year, over the next 10 years, to reach its net-zero goals, Reset Connect has been developed to help businesses and organisations implement their own sustainability and CSR strategies, whilst reducing environmental impact.
Duncan Reid, co-founder and CEO of Reset Connect said, “Addressing climate change will be an expensive task, where we need organisations across both public and private sectors to think and act on not only how to deliver their sustainability strategies but how to fund them. Reset Connect has been founded to essentially bridge this gap – be it funding, or knowledge based – to help existing organisations make real and impactful changes.
“I am incredibly excited about the momentum happening in this space. We’ve heard a lot about what needs to happen, but this is the opportunity for the business and finance community to get into action and make it happen. Our first in-person event this June is instrumental in driving this.
“With our 120 strong speaker line-up of thought-leaders and sustainable change-makers, I know we will deliver excellent value and education through talks, workshops and panel discussions… Watch this space.”
Co-founded by experienced events professionals, Reset Connect is set to become the UK’s leading sustainability conference and community, that successfully unites business leaders, investors, and change-makers in helping the UK achieve net-zero.
