On the 27 and 28 June, businesses including Google, eBay, Nestle, Microsoft, GSK, Phoenix Group, M&G Investments, Starling Bank and other FTSE100 companies and the investment community will unite at Reset Connect London, the UK’s largest sustainability and net zero event, the flagship of London Climate Action Week at ExCeL London.
With over 5,000 attendees, 250 exhibitors and 350 speakers already registered, the event urges business, financial services, industry and government to reset mindsets, business models, encourage new behaviours and redefine sustainability. This is a chance for businesses to explore solutions and share best practices, build relationships with fund managers to attract responsible capital, discover new tech to support sustainability strategies, reduce emissions, and reach their targets in line with UN SDG and Net Zero goals. It focuses on actionable takeaways, not just conversation.
Duncan Reid, CEO and Co-founder of Reset Connect, said: “Each year there is a huge build up to COP. But each year policymakers and business leaders come away from the event feeling disheartened. Not enough is being done to encourage collaboration, and the format of COP itself fosters exclusivity over accessibility. We’re responding by breaking down those barriers.
“Radical collaboration is needed to achieve ambitious climate targets. But we know businesses can’t do this alone. Reset Connect London is about equipping businesses with the necessary support, connecting investors with viable proposals and creating solid, and pragmatic solutions.”
In order to bridge the gap between sustainability change-makers, business leaders, policy and funding, Reset Connect London is designed around interactive panel sessions, exhibitors, and seven knowledge-sharing hubs, targeted towards addressing pressing sustainability issues, challenges and proven solutions, including energy security, the circular economy, decarbonisation, mobilising investment and creating green urban spaces of the future.
The event will provide access to global and local heavyweights in sustainability talking through best practice case studies, frameworks, regulations, future trends, investment insights, support for start-ups, to give businesses, investors, and innovators relevant, actionable takeaways to reach their targets.
Influential keynote speakers including the Rt Hon Chris Skidmore MP, Chair of The Net Zero Review who signed the UK’s commitment to net zero into law, Rhian Kelly, Chief Sustainability Officer, National Grid, and Kate Raworth, Co-Founder of the Doughnut Economics Action Lab, will be sharing their expertise during the two-day event in the hopes of spurring on collective action and scalable impact.
Kate Raworth, Co-Founder of the Doughnut Economics Action Lab, said: “What excites me about joining the change-makers gathering at Reset Connect London is the ambition and courage of participants and speakers to undertake a journey of transforming their own businesses and organisations, so as to create the thriving economy of the future.”
